GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Palestinian official: 15 dead, more than 150 wounded in strike on busy Gaza market.
2014-07-30 11:12:04 -0400

A Palestinian hugs his father who was wounded in an Israeli strike on a compound housing a UN school in Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, following their arrival at the Kamal Edwan hospital in Beit Lahia, on July 30, 2014Israel was on Wednesday observing a four-hour lull in Gaza several hours after a deadly strike on a school killed 16, drawing a furious response from a UN refugee agency. The humanitarian window went into effect at 1200 GMT, although the Israeli army said it would not apply to areas where troops were "currently operating" in a move Hamas dismissed as a publicity stunt with "no value". The temporary truce deal came into force just hours after two Israel shells slammed into a UN school in the northern Gaza Strip where more than 3,000 people had sought shelter, killing at least 16 of them. It was the second time in a week that a UN school had been hit, hiking the death toll in Gaza from 23 days of bloodshed to 1,306 and drawing a furious denunciation from the head of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA.
