All eyes fixed on the Middle East

By Amy Robach, NBC News anchor

Tonight, all eyes remain on the Middle East as the death toll continues to rise from Israel's airstrike in Gaza. We will have a live report from Martin Fletcher who has made his way to the border region for a first-hand account of the escalating situation. In addition, Richard Engel will join us to discuss the impact this will have on the region, as well as the United States.

We'll also touch upon the top domestic issue facing President-elect Barak Obama: the economy. Savannah Guthrie will report on Obama's plans live from Hawaii.

Finally, you won't want to miss a heartwarming update on a brave young man who showed unbelievable strength and courage when he had both of his legs amputated. His one wish: to one day run alongside his classmates. We've followed young Nick Nelson's journey for the past year, and you won't want to miss his amazing story. We hope you'll join us tonight.
