The Other Side of the Israeli Conflict
The horrific killings and bomb blasts rocking much of Israel and the Palestinian-occupied Gaza Strip are, depending on which news source is talking, either the work of overlords in Israel, notably Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose popular policies at home are met with a decidedly icy reception in much of the rest of the world -- or out-of-control Hamas leaders in Gaza.
But, one aspect of the conflict that is hard to dispute is, no matter the news source, TV viewers aren't hearing much from Gaza leaders about the conflict, their role in it or the kindling that's at the heart of the Palestinians lobbing bombs into Israel and digging tunnels to get out of Gaza. Why are Gazans tunneling out of their country? It may have something to do with walls and armed guards surrounding much of their homeland.
Tonight, cable news network Al Jazeera America's Nick Schifrin goes inside Gaza to see how its residents and its leaders are affected by the Gaza War. Gaza: Witness to War airs at 11pm Eastern on Al Jazeera America.
