The funerals of four Palestinians killed overnight ahead of a ceasefire were held today in the Gazan city of Khan Younis. Among the dead was a woman, 70, and two children aged 4 and 6, all from the same family, Palestinian health officials said.
In the southern city of Rafah, family members arrived to the morgue to identify the bodies of three people killed after an Israeli aircraft bombed a house, medical officials said.
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.
