Children among latest fatalities in Gaza

Text size Aa Aa

Israel has said it is doing all it can to avoid civilian casualities in what is one of the most densely populated parts of the world, but around a quarter of the more than 520 Palestinians killed so far have been civilians.  
 
Among the lastest victims were three children whose house in Gaza City was hit by a tank shell, according to Palestinian medics. 
 
So far the offensive has failed to completely prevent Hamas from firing rockets at Israel.  Four Israelis have been killed in recent attacks.
