Hopes for quiet and calm in the Middle East, dashed as the rocket barrage between Israel and Gaza resumes. Israel stopped its attacks for 6 hours.
But Hamas never accepted the terms of the cease-fire and never stopped firing. Israel says it's been hit by 141 rockets total since 9am ET Tuesday - that's the equivalent of one rocket every 6 minutes.
'Failure is not an option': But Israel, Hamas can't agree on cease-fire
Israel has now confirmed its first fatality in this conflict. But in Gaza, the death toll is much higher, nearly 200 people killed.
Many civilians among the dead.
