Chilling Drone Footage Brings Gaza Destruction To Life

It’s one thing to hear of devastation and destruction; it’s entirely different to see the impact of it.

This footage of Gaza taken from a drone shows the devastating destruction the 50 days of war between Israel and Hamas caused. The fighting killed more than 2,100 Palestinians, 64 Israeli soldiers and five Israeli civilians.
