Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai: "The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages''
7:55 P.M. Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Israel's operation in Gaza: "The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years."
11:50 P.M. "The Israelis will commit a stupid mistake if they decide to launch a ground operation against Gaza," Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah says during a Shi'ite religious ceremony in Beirut's southern suburbs. "The resistance in Gaza has acquired power, determination and planning capabilities," Nasrallah said, adding that the firepower possessed by Hamas militants was putting Israelis increasingly on edge.

Hamas official Abu Zahri says that ceasefire negotiations in Cairo have failed, Israeli TV reports.
The announcement comes amid international efforts to put an end to the ongoing violence.
An Israeli envoy arrived in Cairo on Sunday for Egypt-mediated truce talks with Hamas. The meeting was focused on agreeing guarantees for ceasefire conditions.
It was Egypt's latest attempt to broker a truce.
Hamas is seeking a truce deal which will lift the border blockade on Gaza imposed since Islamists seized the territory by force.
It also wants Israel to halt targeted killings of its leaders and military commanders. Israeli officials reject the demands, saying they are not interested in a temporary agreement, and want firm guarantees that the rocket fire will end.
