Gaza conflict: Inside town bearing brunt of Israeli strikes

3 August 2014 Last updated at 03:06 BST

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has said the operation in Gaza will continue until it restores security and quiet to Israeli citizens.

Some 1,670 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 65 Israelis, all but two soldiers, have died since the conflict began more than three weeks ago.

In Rafah - where Israeli forces are carrying out a search and rescue operation for a missing Israeli soldier - the hospital is struggling to cope with the dead and wounded.

Ian Pannell reports from there.
