Israel's offensive in Gaza has waged for over two weeks, despite pleas for peace from the international community. Israeli troops are now doing battle inside neighborhoods just east and west of Gaza City, while the Israeli navy shells from the west. There are also reports of face-to-face combat with Hamas militants. Today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon heads to the Middle East to try and enforce the cease-fire resolution passed by the United Nations earlier this week. For the latest on the developments in the Middle East we turn to the BBC's Tim Franks.
Editor's note: If you didn't hear the correction on the air, about half of the more than 900 Palestinians killed in the Gaza fighting have been civilians. We earlier incorrectly stated all were civilians.
