Witnesses: Thousands flee for cover as Israel raids Gaza

Aug. 19, 2014 10:19 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 19, 2014 10:19 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Thousands of Palestinians fled their homes in neighborhoods of eastern Gaza City on Tuesday, carrying bags of clothes, pillows and mattresses after renewed Israeli airstrikes, witnesses said.

An AFP reporter saw hundreds of Palestinians streaming out of Shejaiya, one of the areas worst affected by more than a month of fighting between Israel and Hamas.

Thousands more were leaving the areas of Zeitun and Shaaf, alarmed by a series of explosions, and heading towards shelters in UN schools, the witnesses said.
