Over the last week, the focus of Israel's strikes in Gaza has been government offices, security compounds and tunnels allegedly used for smuggling along the Egyptian border. Partly because of Gaza's dense population, schools, clinics and residential areas have also been hit.

The UN says that the death toll includes more than 60 civilians. Israeli ground troops remain on the border, waiting for a signal to invade.

Guest host Ari Shapiro talks to Gazan business consultant and Guardian contributor Sami Abdalshafi about the situation in Gaza.
