"Day of Gaza unrest leaves 22 dead

The aftermath of the attacks in Gaza

At least 22 people, including five Palestinian children, have died in Gaza's worst day of fighting since Israeli incursions in early March.

A Hamas ambush in northern Gaza killed three Israeli troops, Israel's highest daily loss in the area for 3 years.

That sparked Israeli air strikes near Bureij refugee camp, which Israel said targeted gunmen, but which left five children among 11 people killed.

A cameraman also died when his car was apparently fired on by an Israeli tank.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was gravely concerned by the escalation of fighting and urged both sides to show restraint."
