The Palestinian death toll in the 19 day conflict between Israel and Hamas has climbed to over 1,000, many of them civilians, Gaza's health ministry said on Saturday.

Ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qidra said rescue workers had taken advantage of a 12-hour truce in the fighting and had retrieved more than 100 bodies buried in the rubble of shelled buildings around the Mediterranean enclave.
