Last night in Gaza 43 were killed overnight in a UN shelter – these were people who’d been told to leave their houses.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday warned his country to prepare for a long conflict with Palestine, as US President Barack Obama called, for the first time, for a humanitarian ceasefire in the region.

More than 1,000 Palestinians and 45 Israelis have died in three weeks of fighting in the Gaza Strip.

More than 700 people, the vast majority Palestinians, have died in 16 days of fighting in Gaza.
