This graphic posted on the Israeli Defense Forces website, dated July 20, 2014, shows an artist's rendition of the Shijaiyah neighborhood in Gaza in an attempt to support Israeli government claims that Hamas is using hospitals, mosques and residences to hide, store and fire rockets.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling pictured at Staples Center in Los Angeles on April 21, 2014Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling filed a new lawsuit Tuesday as testimony continued in a probate trial on the validity of a $2 billion deal to sell the NBA team.

The league began proceedings to strip ownership from Sterling before he gave wife Shelly the power to make a sales deal. She struck a $2 billion pact with former Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer, only to have Sterling file a lawsuit challenging the validity of the forced sale.
