On this edition of Your Call, we discuss the violence and destruction in Israel and Palestine.
The surprise attack carried out by Hamas on Saturday in Southern Israel left over 1,200 Israelis dead and 2,900 injured.
Israel has responded with intense bombings in Gaza, which has killed 900 Palestinians and injured 4,500. Almost 270,000 Palestinians have been displaced, with nowhere to go to escape the bombing.
The loss of life and destruction is expected to escalate. Israel says a ground invasion is next with military support from the Biden administration. What will it take to end the violence?
