According to today's article in the New York Times, Gaza continues to suffer from one of the largest attacks in decades. The U.S. is calling for Israel to cease-fire so that humanitarian aid can be delivered, but neither Israel nor Hamas intends to end this war anytime soon.
Conflict in Gaza is not new and dates back to at least the early twentieth century.
