Palestinians gathered around the fallen victims' bodies that were spread out on the blood-streaked grounds of the U.N. school, which shelters some 3,000 displaced people. Those who weren't taken to the Kuwaiti hospital in Rafah had their wounds tended to under an onsite makeshift tent.
One U.N. staffer was confirmed dead, according to Robert Turner, director of operations for the U.N. Palestinian refugee agency in Gaza.
Some 70 Israelis—mostly soldiers—have been killed in the four-weeks of conflict. Another 1,750 Palestinians—nearly all civilians—died, according to Palestinian health officials.
