Gaza's second day of pounding by Israel

Text size Aa Aa

Day two of the Gaza conflict, and Israeli warplanes continued to strike targets in and around Gaza City.

Plumes of smoke and dust snaked into a sky scarred by the vapour trails of outgoing rockets bound for Israeli territory.

The Israeli army said more than 150 targets were hit, the majority of them rocket launchers. This taxi driver found himself buried.

The number of wounded went well into three figures. Hospitals treated men, women and children alike.

The list of Palestinians killed included civilians too according to Gaza’s health ministry, among them a woman pregnant with twins, a baby boy not yet a year old and three older children.
