U.S., UN slam Gaza violence as Israel strikes 33 Palestinian sites

PanARMENIAN.Net - The U.S. and UN have condemned the resumption of violence between Israel and Palestinian militants following the end of a three-day truce on Friday, August 8, according to BBC News.

The Israeli military says it struck 33 sites early on Saturday, while five rockets have hit southern Israel. Five Palestinians were killed, including three whose bodies were pulled from the wreckage of a mosque, Gaza health officials said.

At least 1,960 people have died since violence erupted in Gaza in early July. More than 1,900 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed, the UN says.

Sixty-seven people have died on the Israeli side, including three civilians.

Israel renewed strikes on Gaza soon after the ceasefire lapsed, saying it was in response to rocket fire by Hamas, which controls Gaza.

Five people, including a 12-year-old boy, were killed in Gaza on Friday, while two Israelis were injured by mortars.
