Watch: The aftermath of Israel’s bombardment in Gaza

Ninety-five Palestinians and 15 Israelis were killed in Shijaiyah Sunday, making it one of the deadliest days in the two-week old Israeli offensive.

This video was taken Sunday after much of the heavy bombardment had taken place. Burning cars and destroyed buildings cover the mostly-empty streets of the Gaza City neighborhood.
