Five people have been killed in Israeli air strikes on Gaza, health officials there say, as Palestinian militants continue to fire rockets at Israel.

Violence resumed after the end of a three-day ceasefire on Friday.

Tensions have also been growing in the West Bank where protesters have clashed with Israeli troops. Reports say two Palestinians have been shot dead, one yesterday, and one today.

At least 1,960 people have died since violence erupted in Gaza in early July.

According to the UN, more than 1,900 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed.
