7-Hour Ceasefire In Effect in Gaza
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (CBS2/FOX28) A 7-hour humanitarian ceasefire is now in effect in the Gaza strip but officials say the truce does not apply to areas in Gaza where troops are still working.
Israel says it will respond with fire-power if its attacked during the ceasefire. Palestinians immediately accused Israel of breaking the cease-fire by bombing a house in Gaza City but that as not been confirmed.
A ceasefire is supposed to allow citizens to grieve and get supplies like food and water.
Early Sunday, before the ceasefire, ten people died after another Israeli airstrike hit a school outside Gaza that was being used as a United Nations shelter.
Israel says it was targeting three terrorists but the U.S. is calling the attack "disgraceful."
Despite the high death toll over the last month, neither side says they plan to scale back their attacks.
Israel says it has destroyed most of the Hamas tunnels it found beneath its borders.
The ceasefire is expected to last until 9 am Monday morning (CST).
