'Precision' airstrikes hitting civilians in Gaza

Israel has claimed again and again that it is using precision strikes against Hamas in Gaza, but 70 to 80 percent of the people Israel is killing in Gaza are civilians, according to the United Nations.

The Pentagon says it's in the process of selling Israel more ammunition, as part of a “re-supply.”

The shipment includes illumination rounds and tank rounds, not precision rounds like missiles fired by drones or smart bombs fired by an F-16.

CNN’s Barbara Starr asks how precise these strikes can be if the overwhelming number of people they kill are civilians.
