An Israeli air strike killed a Palestinian mother and daughter in Gaza on Sunday.


The deaths come as violence between Israelis and Palestinians, which began in east Jerusalem and the West Bank several days ago, threatened to spiral out of control.


Tensions have also been stoked by Palestinian frustration over the failure to make progress - amid Israeli settlement-building in the West Bank - toward statehood in peace talks with Israel. Those negotiations collapsed in 2014. 


Palestinians seek a state in the West Bank and Gaza with East Jerusalem -- which includes the Old City -- as their capital. Israel captured all three areas in the 1967 Middle East war. It withdrew soldiers and settlers from Gaza in 2005.
