Israel has announced a seven-hour "humanitarian ceasefire" in parts of Gaza, starting this 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 attack 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 said it had targeted three Islamist militants near the UN school.
