Child killed, 30 injured in Gaza City strike despite lull: medics

GAZA - A child was killed and 30 people wounded in a strike on a refugee camp in Gaza City on Monday just minutes into an Israeli-declared truce, medics said.

The strike hit a house in the beachfront Shati refugee camp, killing an eight-year-old girl, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP.

Witnesses said it was an Israeli air strike but there was no immediate comment from the Israeli army, which said it was looking into the incident.

Earlier on Monday, the Israeli army announced a unilateral seven-hour lull which went into force at 0700 GMT.
