Grief struck

, August 20, 2014

Palestinians watch the funeral of the wife of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, his infant son Ali and other Palestinians whom medics said were killed in Israeli air strikes, in the northern Gaza Strip on August 20. Israeli air strikes killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza, including the wife and infant son of Deif, in what the group said on Wednesday was an attempt to assassinate him after a ceasefire collapsed. Israel's military said it had carried out 60 air strikes on the Gaza Strip since hostilities resumed on Tuesday, and that Palestinians launched more than 80 rocket salvoes, some intercepted by the Israeli anti-missile Iron Dome system.
