In this week’s Focus On Gaza we look at two blows suffered by the Israeli army. Firstly a UN report which brands the recent Israeli war on Gaza as illegal.
Secondly the chilling accounts of a disregard for civilian safety from its own soldiers involved in the operation, published this week in a leading Israeli newspaper.
We also look at internal dischord among the Palestinian movement and the numerous factions involved.
In a special report our correspondent Hoda Abdel Hamid brings together two Gazan students one from each of the two opposing groups – living very different lives and separated by factional rivalry.
Our senior political analyst Marwan Bishara reveals the real chances of a unity government being negociated by the leaders of these factions in talks in Cairo.
