Palestinians are reflected in a mirror as they look at the remains of a house which police said was destroyed in an Israeli air strike in Gaza City July 14, 2014. Israel appeared to hold off on a threatened escalation of its week-old Gaza Strip barrage on Monday despite balking at Western calls for a ceasefire with an equally defiant Hamas. The Gaza Health Ministry said at least 166 Palestinians - among them about 138 civilians, including 30 children - have died during six days of warfare, and more than 1,000 wounded. Israel says its offensive is intended to halt rocket fire at its cities from the Gaza Strip. REUTERS/Mohammed Salem (GAZA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST) less
