The latest 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza is due to start at 10pm BST, following Israeli air strikes and shelling that medics said killed nine Palestinians in the region today, including a 14-year-old boy.
One air strike destroyed the home of Gaza City's mayor, Nezar Hijazi, across the street from a bureau for the Reuters news agency where reporters and cameramen hit the floor as the explosion occurred.
There were no casualties in the attack because Israel telephoned warnings to residents in the house and neighbouring buildings.
The Israeli military said it targeted 11 "terror squads" in Gaza among them gunmen involved in or preparing to fire rockets.
There have been two days of quiet in Gaza. No rockets or missiles, no more destroyed houses, no more ambulance sirens screaming.
A three-year-old girl has been rescued from Gaza and brought to London for life-saving heart surgery.
A small team of NHS doctors and surgeons is travel to Gaza to set up facilities and establish how best to use specialists and equipment.
