On 8 January a civilian contractor for the UN Palestinian Refugees Agency (UNRWA) was reportedly killed when a UN convoy on its way to pick up relief supplies was hit by two tank shells in northern Gaza on Thursday according to a UN spokesman. Two other contractors were injured.
The convoy was reported to have been co-ordinated with the Israeli military and occurred during the three hour cease fire scheduled to last from 1pm (11:00 GMT) to 4pm (14:00 GMT) at the Erez crossing.
The Israeli army says it is investigating the incident.
