Calling up another 16,000 troops, the Israel defense forces have now activated 86,000 reservists since July 8. With a backdrop of failed attempts at brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, civilians in Gaza continue to pay the price. Just as ambulances arrive after explosions near a street market in northern Gaza, the photographer for a Palestinian news agency was reportedly among the injured. The shellings continue. Explosions also hit a United Nations school, Wednesday. "We saw the shells when they hit, and shrapnel was falling like ran. I was so scared and the school filled with smoke. We poured water in our eyes just to see," says Sanaa Abugerad. This is just one of several U.N. schools, used as shelters, where shells have either hit or fallen near over the last few days. Israel says some of the attacks in Gaza are the result of Hamas' errant rocket fire. The I-D-F claims more than 200 rockets fired from Gaza have landed in Gaza since the start of this latest round of violence in the Middle East. The Israel defense forces focuses much of its attention on tunnels like this one, which militants use to sneak under Israel's border with Gaza. Explosions killed three I-D-F soldiers as they uncovered a tunnel entrance inside a home in southern Gaza, Hamas said its fighters had lured Israeli soldiers inside a house booby-trapped with I-E-D's. The death tool so far, more than 50 Israeli soldiers and three Israeli civilians, according to the I-D-F. According to Gaza health officials, more than 1,300 Palestinians, of which the U.S. estimates 70-to-80-percent are civilians, caught up in the violence.
