Flashpoints – Israel’s air and land war continues

Israel's air and land war continued today as the death toll rose to at least 640 and nearly 3,000 wounded; the latest Israeli strikes claimed the lives of 40 people who took refuge from the North at a UN school in Jebaliya; we report on the challenges facing doctors on the ground who not only don't have the medicine but are faced with dealing with wounds from unconventional weapons never seen before; we'll get reports from the Gaza City, the densely populated Meghazi refugee camp, and from Rafah in the south at the Egyptian border; also, Barbara Lubin of the Middle East Children's Alliance gears up to deliver 5 tons of desperately-needed medical aid; and the Knight Report.
