Gaza: 20 Palestinian people including 3 children killed by IDF
At least twenty Palestinian people were killed on Sunday by Israeli shelling in a Gaza neighbourhood.
Video obtained by Reuters was described as showing more than a dozen mangled corpses, including three children, lying in the rubble-filled streets.
Sunday is day thirteen of Operation Protective Edge and day four of Israel's ground attack in Gaza.
Gaza was bombarded throughout the night by the heaviest barrage of tank shells since the beginning of Israel's offensive. Residents say they were trapped by the indiscriminate shelling, especially at the Shajaiya and Al-Shaaf neighbourhoods. Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston is in Gaza and witnessed the shelling.
