Displaced Palestinians across the Gaza Strip took advantage of a brief ceasefire on Friday to inspect their homes. But the lull in fighting was short-lived - within two hours, the truce collapsed with Israel and Hamas blaming each other for violating the agreement.

Thousands of buildings have been damaged since Israel began bombardment of the besieged territory on July 8. Mosques, hospitals, residential buildings and schools have been targeted.
