Al Jazeera assesses the scale of destruction of the Gaza Strip, after a month of Israeli bombardment. The coverage also look at attempts to rebuild lives and infrastructure after weeks of airstrikes and a ground offensive, which has included heavy tank shelling in civilian areas.

Correspondents Andrew Simmons, Imtiaz Tyab and Charles Stratford deliver live reports from Gaza, covering the human impact of the conflict in Gaza; from child trauma to the reality of life under siege.

Diplomatic editor James Bays assesses how the conflict is playing out politically for all sides, as well as the overall cost to both Hamas and Israel from the month-long conflict. Meanwhile, senior correspondents Jonah Hull and Patty Culhane in London and Washington, DC will review the international reaction to the crisis.

Also covered are the UN accusations of war crimes committed by Palestinian factions operating in densely populated civilian areas and claims of a disproportionate use of force by Israel. Further, the diplomatic attempts to negotiate a lifting of the Israeli imposed blockade.

Al Jazeera.com will feature an infographic detailing the scope of the destruction in Gaza and stories from ordinary Gazans.
