Palestinians carry the bodies of two boys from the Baker family, whom medics said were killed with other two children from the same family by a shell fired by an Israeli naval gunboat, during their funeral in Gaza City July 16, 2014. Four Palestinian children were killed and one was critically wounded on a Gaza beach on Wednesday by the shell fired by the Israeli naval gunboat, a Palestinian health official said. Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman in Tel Aviv said he was checking the report. Gaza health officials said 207 Palestinians, most of them civilians, had been killed in air and naval barrages, in the worst flareup of Israeli-Palestinian violence in two years. One Israeli has been killed by shelling from Gaza that has made a race to shelter a daily routine for hundreds of thousands in Israel.
