Israel shelling kills 8 after Gaza truce begins
(08-01 16:18)

Israeli shelling killed eight people in southern Gaza on Friday, medics said, just hours after a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire took effect.
A doctor at a nearby Abu Yusef al-Najjar hospital gave no immediate details of the identities of those killed, but said they had died in a bombardment east of the southern city of Rafah, after an AFP correspondent saw heavy shelling of the area. --AFP
