JEBALIYA REFUGEE CAMP, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Gaza health officials say 15 people have been killed and more than 150 wounded by an Israeli airstrike in a crowded shopping area.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Gaza health ministry official Ashraf al-Kidra says the area was busy Wednesday because residents thought a cease-fire was in place. The Palestinian Red Crescent confirmed the death toll.
Israel had earlier announced a “humanitarian window” in certain parts of the territory. It said it would not halt fire in other areas, including in Shijaiyah, where the strike took place.
Gaza militants had fired several rockets at Israel earlier.
