Israeli air strikes shake the Gaza strip into Wednesday -- one sending sparks from electrical lines flying into the night sky. At one point munitions slammed into Gaza at a rate of one every 10 minutes. Gazan residents clean up rubble, as Israeli warplanes roar overhead. A series of strikes in central Gaza City damaged the offices of international media organisations located in a near-by building. The offices of Al Jazeera and the Associated Press were amongst those affected. Wael AlDahdouh, the head of the Al Jazeera office in Gaza, said it was a miracle that no one was hurt after eight bombs hit the adjacent building, sending metal shrapnel into their office. Israeli troops have remained stationed at the border and Palestinian rocket fire continues. U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton arrived in Ramallah for talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas early Wednesday. Clinton, who has already met with Israeli leadership and later flies to Cairo to see Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, spoke of working towards a truce "in the days ahead". After seven days of hostilities, over 130 Palestinians and five Israelis have been killed.
