As the clock heads towards the truce Israel continues bombing in violation of international law killing 27 Palestinians who were sheltering at the UN school.
The 4-day truce will start at 7 am on Friday. The post-truce scenario is not clear and has very limited information on how Israelis will react.
According to the media report the first 13 civilian captives will be released at 4 pm on Friday and Palestinians held in Israeli jails will also be released.
The overall death toll in Gaza by Israel crossed 14500 with a huge majority of children.
