So there are missiles from Israel, Gaza, Hamas etc. I know I might appear a tad stupid, but can some knowleadable type explain who is fighting who over what and why for? For some reason I don't understand this and want to get a nice simple explanation. Is it a fight over a strip of land? Surely it can be summed up by someone in a few lines?

Yes, today i'm bored.
