As of this morning, the UN has confirmed that 15 Palestinians have been killed including 10 civilians. That's three girls, one boy, four women and two men.

“Border crossings with Gaza have been closed. One of the things that is a consequence of that is that it's prevented the scheduled entry of about 600 truckloads of goods carrying vital items such as food, medical supplies, and fuel. And so we're hoping that that can be resolved soon. And as I pointed out, Mr. Wennesland will brief the Security Council by video conference this afternoon in closed consultations.”
