In pictures: Day of mass funerals
Funerals were held on Saturday for some of those killed on Friday, when a Palestinian suicide bomber struck at a shopping mall in Netanya and Israel used warplanes to strike Palestinian areas for the first time in more than 30 years.

The calls for all this to stop are coming from many sides - from moderate Israelis, from the Arab League, from the United States.
