The blast, which Palestinian officials said was Israeli shelling of a produce market, killed 17 people total. The Israeli military said it was investigating. Wednesday was one of the deadliest day since the conflict began. In a separate incident, at least 15 Palestinians among thousands sheltering at a school ran by the United Nations were killed. The United Nations said its initial assessment was that Israeli artillery shells hit the facility.
