Two disabled women were killed and four others wounded and in a serious condition when an Israeli tank shell struck a care home for disabled people in the eastern part of Gaza City, Palestinian medics said.
Nine people were killed in total as Israel pounded Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip for a fifth day, the medical officials added.
Misunderstood translation led to error in last tweet. There were six people living in the care home. Two of them died last night #gaza
It's been an emotionally exhausting day in Israel and Gaza as hopes for peace were raised then dashed then raised then dashed again.
In the court of international opinion, this is how Israel wins a battle and still manages to lose the war.
Until the Israelis and the Palestinians find a way of resolving the underlining conflict this will not be more than a pause.
