Israeli tanks open fire on a UN school in Gaza, where hundreds of civillians were sheltering from the daily airstrikes. It follows the destruction of the area's only power plant, worsening the plight the Palestinians face. The U.S. and EU look to pressure Russia's financial and energy sectors in a fresh round of economic sanctions, targeting some of the country's largest institutions. Heavy artillery attacks target towns across Eastern Ukraine, leaving scorched houses and residents dead - while government forces claim they're ready for dialogue.
