GAZA CITY, Gaza - Residents of besieged Gaza ventured onto the beach hours after a three-day cease-fire started on Friday, but soon ventured back indoors as word spread that the truce appeared to be crumbling. Fishermen, who had returned to the sea en mass for the first time in nearly a month, were also seen returning to port.

On July 16, four Palestinian boys from the same family were killed as they played football on the beach.
