At least 17 people were killed on Wednesday when Israel bombed a packed market in Shejaiya, an area north of Gaza City.
People had gone to the market to stock up on supplies during a four hour ceasefire declared by Israel, when the attack struck and scattered bodies on the ground.
Medics at the scene said at least 200 people were injured in the attack.
Israel has bombarded Shejaiya over the past ten days, destroying many areas completely. Scores of people have been killed and hundreds injured in the attacks, with most of the population now having evacuated the area.
