Residents of Gaza suffered the most intense bombardment of the 18-day war last night as Israel warplanes carried out strikes throughout the Gaza Strip. Israeli tanks supported by warplanes have reportedly moved into several southern neighborhoods of Gaza City. The Palestinian death toll is now at least 930. More than 4,000 Palestinians have been injured. 13 Israelis have died over the past 18 days.

The United Nations estimates about 60,000 Palestinians have fled their homes but many residents of Gaza have no where to go to see refuge because all of the Gaza border crossings are closed.

On Monday The United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution condemning Israel of “grave violations.” The non-binding resolution said Israel"s attack had “resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people”.

Zaki Chehab is the political editor of the London-based Al Hayat newspaper and the Arabic TV channel LBC. His is the author of “Inside Hamas: The Untold Story of the Militant Islamic Movement.” He joins us on the telephone from London.
