Palestinians inspect the rubble of a destroyed mosque following an Israeli airstrike in Gaza City, on August 9, 2014. Israel launched more than 20 aerial attacks in Gaza early on Saturday and militants fired several rockets at Israel in a second day of violence since a failure to extend an Egyptian-mediated truce that halted a monthlong war earlier this week. The Israeli military said that since midnight it had attacked more than 20 sites in the coastal enclave where Hamas Islamists are dominant, without specifying the targets. Medical officials in Gaza said two Palestinians were killed when their motorcycle was bombed and the bodies of three others were found beneath the rubble of one of three bombed mosques. The air strikes which lasted through the night also bombed three houses, and fighter planes also strafed open areas, medical officials said. Photo by Ashraf Amra
