Wed, 16 Jul 2014 00:39:35 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(JERUSALEM) -- The fatality count in the ongoing attacks between Israel and Gaza rose Tuesday, following the failure of the proposed cease-fire agreement.

The first Israeli casualty was reported since the violence started on July 7 and the number of both civilian and non-civilian Palestinian fatalities continued to grow.

The United Nations Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs released Palestinian fatality figures at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Jerusalem, which stated that 192 people have been killed in Gaza since attacks began.

Those individuals were classified into groups of 143 civilians, 30 members of armed groups, and 19 individuals whose affiliation was undetermined at the time of the release.
