An update on the conflict in Israel


And now an update on the conflict in Israel from a witness in Gaza. Translator Ruba Akila (ph) told NPR the Israeli airstrikes kept people awake all night. She said that every time she puts bread in her mouth, she's worried it's the last time she'll eat, that every time she prays, she thinks it will be the last time she prays. The Israel Defense Forces say they've struck Hamas targets in Gaza that were used to launch the surprise attacks against Israel yesterday. Officials from both sides say that at least 900 people have been killed. Stay tuned to NPR or follow along on our website at npr.org for more updates. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
