As the Israeli army began a bombing campaign across the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Gazans tweeted their own version of events from the ground. "Operation Pillar of Cloud" has killed at least seven, wounded at least 20 more, and raised fears online and on the ground of a return to war. The attacks are the biggest escalation in the conflict between Israel and Hamas since the 2008-2009 Gaza invasion.
