At least 10 people have been killed in an Israeli air strike on a UN-run school housing Palestinians displaced by the Gaza conflict, medics say.

Thousands of Palestinians were believed to be sheltering in the facility in Rafah in the southern
Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military has not commented but has been carrying out renewed strikes in Gaza.

Gaza health officials say 30 people have died on Sunday, while militants continue to fire rockets into Israel.

The latest exchanges came after Israel’s military said that an officer it feared had been captured had now been confirmed dead. Hadar Goldin went missing on Friday near Rafah. Confirmation of 2nd Lt Goldin’s death means 66
Israelis have now died in the fighting, all but two of them soldiers.
A Thai worker in Israel also died.

The latest official figures from Gaza’s health ministry say that 1,740 Palestinians have been
killed and 9,080 injured since the conflict began more than three weeks ago.
