Palestinians try to flee Israeli airstrikes in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, on October 30, 2023. Others dig through the rubble of homes to try to rescue survivors, including an 8-month-old baby. Still others wait at a hospital to collect bodies of loved ones for burial. Israel's assault on Gaza, sparked by Hamas' October 7 attack on Israel, is in its third week.
