Headlining today's edition of our show, new developments in the Middle East and the landfall of a cyclone in India. Not since 2014 has there been so much violence between Palestinians and Israelis.
From the Palestinian controlled territory of Gaza, more than 3,100 rockets have been fired into Israeli lands. Israel says many of them have missed or gotten intercepted by its missile defense system but some rockets have hit populated areas killing at least 10 people since the violence flared up more than a week ago.
Meantime, Israeli warplanes have launched air strikes on Gaza. Their targets have included tunnels, residences and other buildings that Israel says were being used by Hamas. That's the name of a Palestinian militant group that controls Gaza.
Israel and some other countries consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization. The Health Ministry run by Hama says more than 200 people have been killed in Gaza and tens of thousands of others have had to flee their homes.
Other countries have called on Israelis and Palestinians to stop their attacks on one another but when we produced this show, the two sides had not agreed on what would have to happen for a ceasefire to take place.
