Secretary of State John Kerry’s attempts at brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Palestine have failed, at least for the moment. Israeli cabinet members rejected Kerry’s proposal on Friday, electing to continue discussions instead about how to improve the proposal in Israel’s favor. More than 800 Palestinians and 35 Israelis have been killed in the past two weeks of fighting, which culminated with a Palestinian "day of rage" Friday following a deadly Israeli attack on a U.N. shelter in Gaza and a 10,000-strong protest in the West Bank on Thursday.
