Today’s photo: a group of Palestinians attempt to put out a fire from an Israeli air strike in Gaza.

Israel launched a series of air strikes against Hamas yesterday. Among those targeted: the leader of Hamas’ military arm. Israel later released video of what they say was the attack.

Join us for more photos after the jump.

The conflict has been bizarrely documented, as Israel has launched an all-out social media blitz, operating both a live-blog of the situation on the ground and twitter updates. Hamas has also joined the fight online, through various twitter handles.
