Family members and residents of Gaza continue to bury the victims of seven days of fighting with Israel.

Here, funeral processions are held for four members of one family killed in their home on Monday -- two four-year-old twin boys and their parents.

Some 110 Palestinians have died in a week of fighting, the majority of them civilians, including 27 children.

Three Israelis died last week when a Gaza missile struck their house.

As the conflict continues, the head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the Middle East, Filippo Grandi, said Gaza's food situation was serious but that stocks have not yet run out.

"With the situation today we cannot run out of food this was already bad two weeks ago but now it is more serious we must get those resources because we must help the population that is the least we can do for this population."

The UNRWA chief also said that the organisation was concerned for the safety of its staff after one teacher was killed in the cross-border fighting.
