Statistics say one child dies every hour in Gaza

Efforts to secure a ceasefire between Israel and the militant Hamas movement have intensified as the death toll in the 18-day-old conflict continues to climb.
More than 800 Palestinians have now been killed, as well as 34 Israelis.
Gaza faced more Israeli shelling and air strikes overnight, while Israeli towns raised the alarm over Hamas rockets Friday morning.
United States Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to discuss with Israel’s security cabinet.
In the latest incident to incite tensions, a shelling of an United Nations-run school shelter on Thursday left at least 15 people dead.
The deaths prompted outrage from Palestinians and from the UN, with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon calling it “totally unacceptable”.
Meanwhile, Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, has announced it shelled Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport with three rockets, the second attack in a week on the Israel’s main international airport.
An Israeli military spokesperson confirmed that rockets were fired towards the airport from the Gaza Strip today.

No fewer than 15 people have been reportedly killed and 200 injured as an Israeli shells hit a United Nations (UN) school in northern Gaza that was being used as an emergency shelter.
The Gaza health minitry later said that 15 were confirmed dead, and 200 injured.
The AFP reported a UN official as confirming “multiple dead and injured”.
Israel has attacked UN schools before, saying that they were safe havens for the armed Palestinians.
The UN has criticised the Palestinian groups various times for using UN schools to hide fighters and weapons.
A witness who arrived at the Kamal Adwan hospital after the attack told Al Jazeera news agency that they were sitting in the school, because they were told it was safe.
“By God, there was not a single fighter, not a single shot was fired from the school. Why did they shoot at the school? Why? Can someone explain that to me? Why would they shell the school?”
