Gaza doctor: 'It's chaos'


Palestinian deaths in the Gaza Strip have passed 1,000, medical sources in Gaza say, as diplomatic efforts continue to reach a ceasefire.

Nearly a third of the dead are reported to be children and nearly 5,000 people have been injured.

International journalists are banned from Gaza but the BBC's Rushdi Abualouf has been to al-Shifa hospital in Gaza. One of the doctors working there said most of the patients are children.
