Israel continues to shower Gaza with rockets from both air and sea, with the number killed in the strikes almost doubling within the past day. The Palestinian death toll reportedly exceeds 100 - around half of them civilians, including women and children.
As the civilian death toll mounts, so does criticism of Israel - for what many see as a disproportionate response. RT spoke to Paul Hirschon, Foreign Ministry spokesperson, who says Israel does its best to prevent the killing of innocents.
