Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers fought a 50-day war over the summer that claimed more than 2,100 Palestinian and 70 Israeli lives. It broke out after Hamas fired dozens of rockets at Israel following an Israeli roundup of Hamas activists in the West Bank, which was in response to the killing of three Israeli teens there.

Rocket fire continued throughout the war, but was largely neutralized by Israel's "Iron Dome" aerial defense system.

Rockets from Gaza now have the ability to reach Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other Israeli cities.
