Using videos, Twitter, text messages, leaflets and phone calls, both sides have attempted to direct the tone of the fighting — for their own public, their opponent's population and for a global audience.
Hamas, in turn, has sent text messages directly to Israelis, warning them that the group will continue firing rockets at them until its demands — like the end of the long-stifling blockade of the tiny Gaza Strip — are met.
The video, which has garnered more than a million views on YouTube, shows the suspected militants creeping onto the beach, scampering on sand dunes, and then one by one getting picked off by blasts of Israeli fire.
Armed men in full scuba gear are seen weaving through murky green waters, emerging at the water's surface and opening fire.
Hamas has sent Israelis personal text messages, warning that they will continue to strike until its conditions for a cease-fire are met, and boasting that "we have forced you to hide in shelters like mice."
 Tel Avivis fled toward shelters when the sirens went off several minutes past nine and three rockets were intercepted over the city by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
Hamas claims its media campaign has helped unify Gazans behind it and stoke protests against Israel in cities around the world.

About 200 people packed into City Hall chambers, and a large, overflow crowd cheered and jeered below an outdoor speaker as Escondido commissioners heard impassioned pleas, mostly from people urging them to reconsider.
Alexia Rodriguez, Southwest Key's vice president of immigrant children's services and legal counsel, said the San Antonio-based group was unaware of Escondido's fraught history with illegal immigration when it did a nationwide search for shelter space in response to a surge of illegal crossings by unaccompanied children from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
A 70-year-old Milford man faces four years in prison for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from three charities.
Defense attorney Howard Germeiner says Weir had intended to pay back all the money and is very remorseful.
The state interior ministry said it banned the Free Network South group on Wednesday and accused it of pursuing the "anti-constitutional endeavors" of an organization that was banned a decade ago, the Franconian Action Front.
Officials searched a property in the small town of Regnitzlosau in northern Bavaria where, the ministry said, an outfit called Final Resistance Mail Order supported the group's activities.
The price of oil has been kept high after a civilian jetliner was last week shot out of the sky over part of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian separatists and as Israel's invasion of the Gaza Strip added to risks of instability in the Middle East.
A Hamas rocket exploded Tuesday near Israel's main airport, prompting a ban on flights from the U.
Spokesman Hasib Sediqi of the National Directorate for Security says recent attacks in Afghanistan were planned in Pakistan, allegedly with the support of the Pakistani military's Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI.
