One of the main objectives of Israeli bombardment in this conflict has been to destroy a network of tunnels from Gaza into Israel's territory.
ITV News Middle East Correspondent Geraint Vincent has been taken to see one of them, which the Israelis are holding up as evidence of the direct threat Hamas poses to them:
The White House said it condemned the shelling of a UN school in the Gaza strip that was sheltering displaced Palestinians.
The US did not say Israel was responsible for the shelling, but officials in Gaza said Israel struck the school, killing 15 and wounding 90.
Israeli's military said it fired back after soldiers were targeted by mortar rounds launched from the vicinity of the school.
White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan also said the US is "extremely concerned" that thousands of Palestinians aren't safe in designated shelters, despite being told by Israel's military to leave their homes. She also condemned those hiding weapons in UN facilities.

All of these actions, and similar ones earlier in the conflict, are inconsistent with the UN's neutrality. This violence underscores the need to achieve a cease-fire as soon as possible.
In the last couple of hours there was an airstrike in Shijaiyah Market. The initial strike brought crowds of people - as you would expect trying to help the injured - along with ambulances that turned up.
And then there was a second strike in almost exactly the same place about five minutes later. All told, 17 were dead including a Palestinian journalist, with 200 injured. It brought dramatic and brutal end to the ceasefire that the Israelis had offered up - a four hour ceasefire.
In the first two hours of that ceasefire Hamas fired 26 rockets. There have been more explosions here in Gaza in the last few minutes. There is no sign that this war is ending.
The death toll in Gaza has risen relentlessly with at least 30 more Palestinians and three more Israeli soldiers - the wounded are measured in the hundreds. Israel claimed rockets had been fired from one of the targets - a UN enclave Israel had been repeatedly told was a refuge for civilians feeling the fighting.
The wounded were taken to the same hospital that was overwhelmed last Thursday with casualties from an earlier attack.
