Text size Aa Aa

Israeli bombing in Gaza has intensified, with the Palestinian death toll now reaching more than 500, mostly civilians.

Artillery, tanks and jets pounded targets despite growing calls for a ceasefire.

Israel says it killed 10 militants who tunnelled across the border from Gaza, and Palestinian officials accuse the Israeli army of shelling a hospital.

The third floor of the Al-Aqsa hospital is reported to have been hit, killing four people and wounding 16.

Earlier the Palestinians say 28 members of the same family were killed in a missile strike.

Hamas has been launching a volley of rockets at Israel, but most of them have been intercepted by Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ anti-missile system.
