TEL AVIV - The World Health Organisation is warning that Gaza healthcare services are unable to handle the wave of people requiring medical attention.
Nearly 100 people have been killed and some 500 injured by Israeli airstrikes that have now entered a fourth day.
Healthcare services in Gaza are on the brink of collapse and medical supplies and fuel for hospital generators are running dangerously low.
A hospital, three clinics and a water desalinisation centre have been damaged.
Residents are terrified to leave their homes and when the planes come they have nowhere to hide.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is warning the situation is worsening by the hour.
It has condemned an Israeli attack on the Palestine Red Crescent branch in Jabalia, where a dozen staff members and volunteers were wounded and three ambulances destroyed.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is urging Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to end the bloodshed immediately.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has also called for an immediate ceasefire.
