GAZA CITY: Israel air strikes kill 7 in Gaza

 

A series of_Israeli air_strikes early Tuesday killed seven people in Gaza, including five members of the same family, emergency services_spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said. The deaths_hike the total_Palestinian toll to 583_since the Israeli military launched Operation Protective Edge on July 8 in a bid to stamp out rocket fire from Gaza. Qudra said a strike on Deir el-Balah in central Gaza killed five family members, four of them women. Another person was killed in a strike in nearby Nusseirat, and one more died in the southern city of Khan Yunis. Many of those killed in the relentless Israeli campaign of shelling and airstrikes in the Gaza Strip have been women and children, medics say. On the Israeli side, 27 soldiers and two civilians have been killed. World powers have urged Hamas to accept an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire and stop raining rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip, demands it has so far resisted..
