More than 100 Palestinians are said to have been killed after Israel intensified its bombardment of Gaza and warned of a long conflict ahead.
Gaza's only power plant caught fire as Israel carried out 60 air strikes, targeting sites associated with Hamas, the Islamist group which controls Gaza.
Following the overnight strikes, Chris Morris met defiant citizen Basman Al-Ashi, who said that the world was failing Gaza.
