Fights in Palestine - level 3
Young Palestinians have clashed with Israeli soldiers, who fired tear gas in response to stone throwing and setting fire to trees and tyres, outside an Israeli military base on Wednesday morning.
Palestinian youths set up barricades across a road leading to the base, setting alight to tyres and other materials.
The protest came after at least 20 people were killed across Gaza on Tuesday, by what Israel said may be just the start of a lengthy offensive against Islamist militants.
At least two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip at Tel Aviv on Wednesday were shot down mid-air by Israel's Iron Dome defence system.
Israelis sitting in local cafes can be seen taking cover as air-raid sirens went off.
Israel says that Hamas Islamists in Gaza have dozens of long-range rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel than ever before.
Difficult words: clash (fight), barricades (temporary walls to block things or people), lengthy (long), air-raid siren (sound that warns of danger).
