There were no reports of casualties.

Israel continues to breach the truce agreement reached between Israel and Palestinian armed groups in Gaza on August 26th, 2014, following 51 days of bloody aggression on the strip, which claimed the lives of about 2,200 Palestinians, and left more than 10,000 others injured. Hundreds of thousands others are currently displaced and live in makeshift caravans or in UNRWA-run schools.

Since 2007, Israel has imposed a blockade on Gaza, which has caused a serious decline in the standard of living, poverty and unprecedented levels of unemployment. (T/R07/R01)
