BBC News, hello, I'm Eileen McHugh.
The UN secretary general has described Gaza as "a graveyard for children" as he launched an appeal for more than $1 billion in aid for Palestinian civilians.
Mr. Gutierrez renewed his call for a humanitarian ceasefire, which both Israel and Hamas have rejected.
We must act now to find a way out of this brutal, awful, agonizing, dead end of destruction, to help end the pain and suffering, to help heal the broken, and to help pave the way to peace, to a two-state solution with Israelis and Palestinians living in peace and security.
He warned that no one was safe as Israel's bombardment hit civilians, hospitals, refugee camps, and UN shelters.
And he said Hamas was using civilians as human shields.
Hamas health officials say 60 people have been killed in southern Gaza today following intense Israeli strikes in the Khan Younis in Rafah areas.
They say more than 10,000 people have been killed in the besieged territory since Israel's bombardment began.
The officials say a further 2,700 are missing.
Mark Regev, an advisor to the Israeli prime minister, said Israel was doing its best to avoid civilian casualties.
Of course I know that innocent people are being caught up in the crossfire between the Israeli defense forces and the Hamas terrorists. I have no doubt that's true.
What I can say unequivocally is that Israel has made a major effort to avoid the innocent people getting hurt.
That's why over 3 weeks ago, we started urging people to leave the north and move to the south.
A nursery in Germany is facing a backlash after suggesting it could drop Anne Frank from its name.

There have been reports of a rise in antisemitism in Germany because of the conflict in Gaza.
Ukraine's commander in chief has said that one of his close advisers has been killed in an explosion at his home in a suburb of the capital Kiev.
The circumstances of the incident are still unclear as Ian McWilliam reports.
Ukraine's military chief general Valeriy Zaluzhniy said his close advisor and friend Major Hennadiy Chastyakov died when an unknown explosive device detonated in a birthday gift.
Major Chastyakov's 13-year-old son was also seriously injured and is in hospital.
Speculation on social media suggested the device may have been planted intentionally.
But the Ukrainian interior minister wrote on social media that the explosion happened when the pin was accidentally removed from a live grenade among the Major's birthday presents.
General Zaluzhniy said an investigation would determine the cause and circumstances of the tragic incident.
