JEBALIYA, Gaza Strip (AP) — Shelling of a school crowded with refugees in Gaza early Wednesday killed at least 17 people and wounded 90 more, according to Palestinian health officials.
More than 100 Palestinians were killed in the bomb-scarred Gaza Strip, among them victims of Israeli fire on a crowded market and a United Nations school. The United States and United Nations condemned the school shelling and Hamas said it fired a salvo of rockets into Israel in retaliation for both attacks. At least 17 people were killed in the strike on the market in Shejaiya, near Gaza City, as Israel observed a four-hour humanitarian lull in other parts of the crowded coastal strip.
