    Gaza

    Gaza

    More than 700 people, the vast majority Palestinians, have died in 16 days of fighting in Gaza. The UN has accused Israel of not doing enough to protect civilians, citing air strikes and the shelling of homes and hospitals. It has also condemned Hamas and other militant groups for "indiscriminate attacks" on Israel. Both sides are coming under increasing pressure to end the fighting. Joining Keelin to discuss the possibility of a ceasefire in Gaza is Ian Black, the Guardian’s Middle East editor.

More than 200 residents of Gaza have died during the Israeli bombardment of the densely-populated territory. But the prospects of the ceasefire being extended are dim, and an Israeli invasion of Gaza is becoming increasing likely with the call­-up of more reservists yesterday. And PM Netanyahu is coming under increasing pressure from left and right, from people who oppose the bombardment of Gaza, and from others who advocate an outright invasion of Gaza.
