Via ReliefWeb, an AFP report: UN fury over new deadly strike on Gaza school - occupied Palestinian territory. After describing the strike on a UN school and the international response, the report continues:
• Hospitals in crisis -
At the school, an AFP correspondent witnessed scenes of chaos, with rescuers trying to evacuate the wounded, adults sprinting frantically away through pools of blood, young children clutched in their arms.
With hospitals and clinics under increasing pressure, Gaza's medical services have reached the brink of collapse, the UN warned.
Rafah's main Najjar hospital is closed after being hit and only two clinics were functioning, with medics rapidly running out of space to store bodies.
In one, an AFP correspondent saw the bodies of four small children packed into an ice cream freezer.
Outside in the garden, doctors had set up a temporary emergency room, receiving dozens of wounded, some of whom had to lie on the ground because there were no beds, he said.
There was only one working operating surgery, with the single bed occupied by two wounded people, he added.
Intensive international attempts to broker a diplomatic end to the fighting between Israel and Hamas have so far proved fruitless, but the efforts are continuing with a Palestinian delegation in Cairo for talks with US and Egyptian officials.
Ministers in Israel's security cabinet decided not to send a representative.
