There are some amazing blogs from Gaza that show what's happening from the perspective of people on the street.
Check out the In Gaza site run by Canadian activist Eva Bartlett who's blog relates to the medical side of the conflict.
She is working with the Red Crescent helping victims and has posted a few videos, including one which is simply the sound of the drones and guns.
Another blog giving an on the ground commentary of what's happening in Gaza is http://gazatoday.blogspot.com/
and the gallery for that site http://picasaweb.google.com/sameh.habeeb
These sites are run by a 23 year old journalist in Gaza named Sameh A. Habeeb
Both these blogs are well worth sharing with friends and family
