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.

    Hit them hard! It's a response to 250 rockets on civilian territories. Bottom line! Hamas is responsible for all deaths. Gaza terrorists won't stop hiding behind woman and children, because it aids their PR battle front. It's a hostile neighborhood with Israel in the midst of blood thirsty jihadists.

    The next 'ceasefire' must be PERMANENT! As Ron Prossor Israel’s UN Ambassador stated; He diligently reported EVERY violation , every rocket attack...and was met with STONY SILENCE from Egypt, the US from the world. Israel will not now take lectures about its retaliation to protect her citizens. The bloodshed is WHOLLY and FULLY the responsibility of Hamas

      Well said, any nation must protect it's citizens against any form of terrorism not to mention insistent rocket firing over a 9 year period.

    Funny how there are no images of Hamas launching their rockets into Israel.

    Israel has every right to defend herself against the attacks from a listed terrorist organization. It is NEVER reported by the biased liberal media concerning the attacks made against the nation of Israel. I am not Jewish but I stand by Israel and support her right to defend her citizens.

    International law and custom since WWII has recognized the right of the people to resist military occupation by any means available. Even Israel admits it is a military occupation. Israel does not admit the lawful right of Palestine to resist it.

      Sure they can resist, but they will not get anywhere with it. Better option is to accept defeat, make peace, and get on with living. That's the only way this is going to pan out anyway.

    There are many that come on this site in support of Israel and there are many who are against. For those who only wish to see the demise of the Jewish people and the destruction of the nation of Israel, dream on, cause it aint going to happen. God has said so in His Holy Word.
