The ongoing war is part of the broader conflict between Israel and Palestine.
First off, you have to know that Israel was officially created in 1948, when a Jewish state was announced on the land of Palestine. The idea of establishing a Jewish state in Palestine was well planned for and it was a result of the Zionism Movement. Back in 1917, British promised to create a state for Jews in Palestine, years later Palestine had seen an increased immigration of zionists (Jews supporting the creation of Israel on Palestinian lands) coming from different parts of the world to the land, forcing the indigenous population out, killing them and destroying their homes! just how the U.S and Australia were created!
Since then, the zionists managed to steal most of the Palestinian lands and Palestinians have only been left with a small peice of land which is known today as 'Palestinian territories'. Palestinians are also refused the right to come back and they have been scattered here and there.
Israel claims that 'Hamas' and other resistance groups in Palestine are terrorists and that Israel has the right to exist and defend itself. In other words, Israel finds its occupation of Palestine is justified, and it often claims that god has promised to give them the land!
As resistance used to fire from Gaza, Israel decided that it will make life as hell in Gaza. The city has been under siege for years! residents even lack very basic human needs.
What is happening now is that Israel is trying to destroy the tunnels that the resistance is using as it find it a great threat and it is also trying to destroy resistance's weaponary. Israel's air force couldn't do the job, so they decided to go for ground offensive which they said to be 'risky'. So far, the ground offensive isn't going very well for Israel, Palestinians have been able to destroy Israeli tanks and killing its elite soldiers. Palestinians have also managed to launch operations inside Israel and hit with missiles reaching Tel-Aviv.
That is the plan, but as Israel isn't being very successfull, it is committing massacres against the Palestinians. It is to force resistance to accept ceasefire without conditions (like lifting the seige on Gaza) and it also wants to turn the Palestinian against the resistance groups.
Attached is the Balfour Declaration from the BBC. Just to show you the real issue behind the conflict of Israel and Palestine.

Palestinian terrorist use civilians as human shields and densely populated civilian areas to hide military targets like rocket launchers.
They then launch nonstop rocket attacks on Israel hoping to provoke a military response.
When Israel retaliates, Palestinian terrorists get what they want.
What they want is lots of dead civilians, as many as possible.
Dead civilians that they & their online supporters shamelessly use as propaganda against Israel.
That's the whole point of launching rocket attacks from civilian areas and using human shields.
And all of those things Palestinian terrorists are doing are war crimes under International Law.

Israeli PM Netanyahu said it best:
We use missiles to protect out civilians.
Hamas uses civilians to protect their missiles.

Hamas shoots rockets and morters for years into Israel from Gaza. Hamas kidnaps and kills 3 innocent Israeli teens. Some Israeli Citizens kill a Palestenian teen in retaliation. Number of attacks increase and Israel is now picking Hamas apart in Gaza. Never ending story....
