GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza Ministry of Health spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said around 6 p.m. that an Israeli airstrike had hit Shujaiyya market, killing at least 17 and injuring 200.
Bodies were still being pulled from the rubble, with medics estimating that dozens had been killed and injured.
The strike came amid a four-hour Israeli "humanitarian ceasefire," which authorities said they would respect in areas in which forces "were not operating."
The neighborhood of Shujaiyya entered international consciousness last week after more than 70 were killed in an Israeli assault on July 20.
