It's often very difficult to get accurate information, much less a sense of the place, observing war zones from the outside. Gaza, where Israel is currently conducting a major ground offensive, is no exception. So Dalia Ezzat, a Middle East observer and graduate student at the London School of Economics, has done us all a service by identifying 54 journalists on the ground in Gaza and creating a Twitter list you can follow for live updates.

To give you a sense of why the list is worth following, here are 13 of the accounts Ezzat highlights and some of their representative tweets:
