Four Palestinian boys were killed by an Israeli rocket on a beach in Gaza yesterday. All the boys were identified as cousins in the Bakr family. But not all the names of the more than 220 dead have been as widely reported.

One Israeli woman has been taking those names, translating them into Hebrew and sharing them online. Michal Rotem joins the show from Israel to talk about her efforts.
