A humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has failed. Israeli shelling reportedly kills up to 30 Palestinians in heavy fighting that broke out just hours into the 3-day truce. RT's Middle East correspondent Paula Slier has the details.
Just two hours after a ceasefire - announced by the US and UN - went into effect, Israeli tanks shelled the eastern part of Rafah, which lies close to Gaza's borders with Israel and Egypt, killing at least four people and wounding 15, according to local officials in Gaza.
After three weeks of IDF's mission, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the new death toll stands at no less than 1,437 people. The current conflict is seeing social media as platform for Palestinians to report on what's going on near their homes.
