Palestinian Death Toll Tops 1,300

Updated: Wednesday, July 30 2014, 03:57 PM CDT

Two new attacks in Gaza have pushed the Palestinian death toll above 1,300 in more than three weeks of fighting.

Israeli strikes today hit a crowded shopping area in Gaza City, where Palestinian officials say at least 16 people were killed.

Israel had earlier announced a "humanitarian window" in certain parts of the territory. It said it would not halt fire in other areas, including in Shijaiyah, where the strike took place.

Earlier today, tank shells tore through the wall of a U.N. school that was crowded with war refugees, killing at least 17 people and wounding 90 others. Israel says its soldiers had been targeted by mortar rounds that were launched from the area of the school, and they fired back.
