FEATURING MAZIN QUAMSIYEH – Israel dropped hundreds of bombs on Gaza over the past several days in the worst violence since the 2014 war. At least 25 people have been killed including children and a pregnant woman.
Four Israelis were also killed after Palestinian militants returned fire with rockets. Newly re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the attacks and blamed Hamas as is the tradition. He and others have said that the violence was the result of two Israeli soldiers being shot on Friday.
