August 4, 2014 - Gaza City, Gaza Strip, Palestinian Territories: Relatives of nine Palestinians from the Abu Nejim family, whom medics said were killed by an Israeli air strike, mourn during their funeral in Jabalia refugee camp. A seven-hour truce under which Israel would unilaterally hold fire in most of the Gaza Strip went into force and Palestinians immediately accused Israel of breaking the ceasefire by bombing a house. Gaza officials say 1,796 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed and more than a quarter of the impoverished enclave's 1.8 million residents displaced. As many as 3,000 Palestinian homes have been destroyed or damaged. Israel has lost 64 soldiers in combat and three civilians to Palestinian cross-border shelling that has emptied many of its southern villages
