Palestinians shop at a market during a truce on the final weekend of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, in Gaza City July 26, 2014. Palestinian refugees from Israel's Gaza offensive emerged from shelters as a brief truce began on Saturday to find many neighbourhoods destroyed and animals roaming the streets unattended. The 12-hour humanitarian truce agreed by Israel and Palestinian militants came as the United States and regional powers urgently sought a way to end almost three weeks of conflict that has killed almost a thousand Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 39 Israelis, mostly soldiers. Israel says its ground incursion launched on July 17 aimed to destroy militant tunnels and it takes pains to avoid civilian deaths, having warned hundreds of thousands of people in the endangered areas to flee their advance.
