Palestinian firemen try to save construction workers who were wounded when a house in Gaza City they were working in collapsed. The workers were removing iron structures from the rubble of the house, destroyed in the Israel assault. A report by the International Committee of the Red Cross says six months after Israel launched its three-week military operation, Gaza neighborhoods particularly hard hit by the Israeli strikes will continue to look like they were hit by a quake unless vast quantities of cement, steel and other building materials are allowed into the territory for reconstruction.
