After six days of bombardment on Gaza by the Israeli military, Gaza’s health ministry warns it is running out of medical supplies. Since the start of the military campaign, many of Gaza's 1.6 million residents have been forced to stay inside their homes, and only emergency vehicles and those delivering food or supplies are allowed movement under the siege. Armed groups in Gaza fired more than 100 rockets into southern Israel today, though Israeli police reported no casualties, according to Reuters. Yesterday and today, the Israeli army fired missiles into buildings in Gaza city that house local and international news agencies. On both days it attacked Al Shuruq - where Palestinian agencies, Britain’s Sky News and Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya channel have offices. Israeli government spokespeople say the military was targeting Islamic jihad fighters who were in the building. FSRN’s Rami Almeghari has more from Gaza.
