Israel launched a massive military offensive on Thursday, sending thousands of troops into Gaza. In a tweet, the Israeli Defense Forces said: "We have hit Hamas hard, and we will continue to hit Hamas hard." But caught between Israel's forces and Hamas’s rockets are approximately 22,000 Palestinians who have taken refuge in one of the United Nations’ 24 designated emergency shelters. Sami Mshasha, a spokesperson with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) tells Mashable, "We are providing food, shelter and water to all 22,000 individuals taking refuge in UNRWA shelters in Gaza." Mshasha added that 22,000 only represents a fraction of the overall total of internally displaced persons in Gaza.
