About This Lesson

Death tolls soared after five days of of heavy fighting between Israel and Hamas. More than 1,200 Israelis and 1,100 Palestinians are now dead with many still missing. In Gaza, the last power station has run out of fuel. There will soon be no electricity, no water or sanitation and food is starting to become scarce.

If time is limited, you can watch up to the 3:22 mark to learn the latest from the war itself. Or from 3:22 on to learn more about the political and international response to the war.
