Israeli military forces are searching for one of their own, 2nd Lieutenant Hadar Goldin. The IDF believes he was taken by Hamas after one of its militants blew himself up and killed two other Israeli soldiers.
Hamas says this story is an Israeli fiction, an excuse to engage militants just 90 minutes after a 72-hour cease-fire began.
CNN's Jake Tapper spoke to the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, who says Hamas is only making things worse for the Gazans caught in the crossfire.
It was supposed to last 72 hours, but it was over in maybe 90 minutes.
A humanitarian cease-fire, brokered by Secretary of State John Kerry and the United Nations, between Israel and Hamas, was over quicker than the run-time of "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Each side blames the other for the collapse of the standstill.
Former Palestinian Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath spoke to Jake Tapper about what's next in the conflict.
Stephen Hadley, National Security Adviser to President George W. Bush, discusses the Obama administration's response to the conflict in Gaza.
