BY A STAFF REPORTER: Two French children have been killed in northern Gaza, the French Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday. They did not elaborate on how they were killed, but their mother and another child were reportedly injured.

In a statement, the ministry said it was "not in a position to verify the circumstances of the surviving families" as they could not be contacted.

The ministry reiterated its demand for a humanitarian truce as well as an immediate exit from Gaza for "foreigners and especially French nationals".
