Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, July 24, 2014.

1. Israel-Gaza conflict. A strike on a U.N. shelter in northern Gaza has killed and injured multiple people. The Israeli military acknowledges was engaged in combat with Hamas in the area of the shelter at the time, but that it is reviewing the incident and a rocket fired by Hamas could be responsible. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said he was "appalled" by the violence. Meanwhile Secretary of State John Kerry is continuing his shuttle diplomacy in the Middle East to try and broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, July 18, 2014.

1. Malaysia Airlines plane crash.  President Obama confirmed that a surface-to-air missile shot down Flight 17 in a territory controlled by pro-Russian rebels.  But he stopped short of blaming a particular culprit. "There's been a lot of misinformation generated in eastern Ukraine generally," Obama said.  "This should snap everybody's heads to attention and make sure that we don't have time for propaganda, we don't have time for games and everybody needs to make sure we're holding accountable those who committed this outrage." The President also called for an immediate ceasefire between Ukraine and the rebels so an international investigation can proceed without any tampering of evidence.  NATO's Supreme Allied Commander of Europe Gen. Phillip Breedlove, who is leading much of the U.S. military's technical intelligence gathering on the crash, joins State of the Union this Sunday. FULL POST
