Palestinians perform Friday prayers outside a mosque which witnesses said was destroyed by an Israel air strike during the offensive, on the second day of a five-day ceasefire in Gaza City. Two successive truces since Monday, expected to last through August 19, have largely quieted the guns after 1,945 Palestinians, most of them civilians, 64 Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel were killed.
