A Palestinian man, whom medics said was wounded by Israeli shelling near a market in Shejaia, lies on a stretcher at a hospital in Gaza City July 30, 2014. Israeli strikes near a market in the eastern Gaza Strip killed 15 Palestinians on Wednesday, the local health ministry said. Residents said that Israeli shelling and two missiles from the air hit the area in Shejaia, on the fringes of the city of Gaza. Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman of the Gaza Health Ministry, said 160 people were also wounded. An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was checking the report. Israel launched its offensive in response to rocket salvoes fired by Gaza's dominant Hamas Islamists and their allies. REUTERS/Suhaib Salem (GAZA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)
