This week's violence in Gaza and Israel is the worst since 2014. After weeks of rising Israeli-Palestinian tension in East Jerusalem which culminated in clashes at a holy site revered by both Muslims and Jews, the violence has escalated. Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, began firing rockets after warning Israel to withdraw from the site, triggering retaliatory airstrikes.

Gaza's health ministry said 27 children were among those who've been killed since fighting began, and many other civilians have died. Another 600 Gazans have also been wounded. Israel says dozens of those killed in Gaza were militants, and some of the deaths were caused by misfired rockets from Gaza.

Gaza families gather to say goodbye to a little girl who was killed under the rubble of the house during the bombing, filmed on May 14.
