Official: Over 1,000 Palestinians killed

Beit Hanoun, Gaza Strip (AP) -- A Palestinian official says more than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed in the ongoing Gaza war as Israel battles Hamas militants.

Gaza health official Ashraf al-Kidra said that officials recovered more than 100 bodies alone on Saturday.

The higher death toll came as fighting lulled Saturday during a 12-hour truce, the only immediate outcome from a high-level mediation mission by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon over the past week. They failed to broker a weeklong cease-fire as a precursor to a broader deal, as they had hoped.

Instead, Israel's defense minister warned he might soon expand the ground operation in Gaza "significantly."
