Gaza City - The barrage of Israeli air strikes has continued over the Gaza Strip as efforts to end the upsurge of violence have so far proven unsuccessful.

Palestinians across the besieged territory have struggled to find a safe place, as the United Nations estimates that at least 342 housing units have been destroyed, and at least 2,000 Palestinians displaced, in the bombardment.

Scores of Palestinian women and children have been injured in the bombings. Local hospitals are struggling to attend to the wounded, while most people are blocked from leaving Gaza through the Rafah border crossing with Egypt.
