However, despite the spike in attacks recently, the tensions between Israel and Palestine have been brewing for decades.

While many believe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict began as a result of religion, it was actually born over the ownership of land and territory.

​Israel, the world's only Jewish State, was established in 1948.

However, Palestinians, the Arab population that hails from the land Israel now controls, still refer to the territory as Palestine and want to establish a state by that name on all or part of the same land.

At least twenty-eight Gaza residents have been killed by the strikes since sundown last Monday, according to Palestinian officials and Israeli media, as per The Washington Post.

Palestinian militants retaliated by launching a heavy barrage of missiles last Tuesday, killing at least 2 Israelis in the coastal city of Ashkelon.

Hundreds of Palestinian residents have been left homeless as a result of the attacks.

Despite specific areas being targeted, residential areas and buildings have taken the brunt of the airstrikes, leaving citizens injured and on the streets with nowhere else to go.

Devastating footage from Gaza has been circulating on social media since the airstrikes began...

And people from all over the world have been watching, both transfixed and horrified, as the violence continues to unfold.

But there's one video in particular that has shocked the world.

Over the weekend, a video emerged of a 10-year-old girl pleading for answers.

Palestinian Nadine Abdel-Taif addressed the media in Gaza with tears in her eyes while questioning "what do you expect me to do?"

"I can't do anything. You see all of this?" she asks while pointing to the buildings that lay as rubble behind her.

"What do you expect me to do? Fix it? I'm only 10."

"I can't even deal with this anymore. I just want to be a doctor or anything to help my people, but I can't."

"I'm just a kid."

She goes on to question: "I said to myself, why do we deserve this? What did we do for this?"

"My family said they just hate us. They just don't like us because we are Muslims.

"You see all the kids around me, they're just kids. Why would you just send a missile to them and kill them? It's not fair."
