From Wednesday's live blog of breaking news:

1:53 A.M. The Gaza Health Ministry says Israeli artillery fire has killed 30 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Thirteen people, including a paramedic, were killed in Jabalia, in the north of the strip.

Among the dead are 17 people who were killed while seeking refuge at the UNRWA-operated 'Abu Haseen' school. Dozens of families were staying at the facility. 70 people were injured in the attack. Earlier, 13 people were killed in a shelling near a mosque in Jabalia.

The ministry says that the death toll since the start of the Israeli operation has risen to 1,231 dead and 7,000 wounded. (Jack Khouri)

00:26 A.M. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said late on Tuesday it had found a cache of rockets at one of its schools in the Gaza Strip and condemned those who had put them there.

"We condemn the group or groups who endangered civilians by placing these munitions in our school," said UNWRA spokesman Chris Gunness. "This is yet another flagrant violation of the neutrality of our premises."
