Gaza death toll rises over 1,000 as bodies are recovered

The toll in Gaza rose above 1,000 dead on Saturday as more than 1,000 bodies were pulled from the rubble of homes throughout the coastal enclave during a truce, medics said.


The grim milestone came on the 19th day of a conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement, during a 12-hour truce that allowed Gaza residents to pick through the ruins of their homes.
