Gaza conflict: Israel plans partial seven-hour ceasefire


Israel has announced a seven-hour "humanitarian ceasefire" in parts of Gaza, starting on Monday morning.

A senior Israeli military official said the truce would not apply to Rafah and that Israeli troops would respond if they came under attack.

Earlier, United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon described an Israeli strike near a UN-run school in Gaza as "a moral outrage and a criminal act".

Palestinian officials said at least 10 people died in the attack on Sunday.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it had targeted three Islamist militants near the UN school.
