We'll discuss the ongoing crisis in Gaza one day after Israeli tanks reportedly shelled a crowded shelter at a United Nations school, killing 15 and wounding 90. On the same day, another Israeli strike hit a fruit and vegetable marketplace near Gaza City. According to Gaza's Health Ministry, that attack killed 17 and wounded about 200. Over the 23-day conflict, more than 1,300 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed. Israel has lost 56 soldiers and three civilians.
