Ceasefire Broken: Dozens Killed
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (CBS2/FOX28) - Gaza officials say 35 people are dead just hours into a ceasefire on the Gaza Strip.
On Friday a three-day humanitarian ceasefire was put into place but it didn't last long; reports are now saying an Israeli unit fired shells into a Palestinian territory.
The goal of the break in fighting was to allow aid and supplies to get to residents and give Palestinians time to bury their dead.
Just hours before the ceasefire went into effect, more than a dozen Palestinians were killed in another Israeli airstrike.
Israeli officials say the airstrike came after Hamas fired rockets into Israel.
Delegations from both sides are heading to Egypt for talks on a new ceasefire deal.
In the weeks of recent fighting, more than 14-hundred Palestinians have been killed and more than 60 Israelis have died.
