Gaza: Escalating conflict

Escalating tensions between Israel and Gaza after Israel carried out more than 20 air strikes and sea artillery attacks on the Palestinian territory, killing the military commander for Hamas, which controls the territory.

Gaza City - Two more Palestinians were killed in Israeli air strikes on Thursday as militants fired around 250 rockets over the border, killing three Israelis, officials on both sides said.

Hamas health ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qudra said a strike in the northern town of Beit Lahiya had killed a 60-year-old man, and the emergency services announced that a child had died of wounds he sustained in a morning strike on Khan Yunis earlier on Thursday.

The latest violence raised to 15 the total number of Gazans killed in 22 hours of Israeli air strikes, which also left at least 150 people injured, medics said.
