35 bodies pulled from Gaza rubble as toll tops 900: medics

Gaza City, Palestinian Territories (AFP) – The bodies of at least another 35 Palestinians were recovered from rubble across Gaza on Saturday, raising to over 900 the overall death toll of Israel’s onslaught on the territory since July 8, medics said.

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said the bodies were retrieved in the three hours since a humanitarian truce came into effect. Thirteen bodies were recovered in Shejaiya in eastern Gaza City, 13 more in Deir al-Balah and Nusseirat in central Gaza, and nine in north Gaza.
