Gaza - death toll from Israeli air raids 166 // Netanyahu's War: What Is It Good For? // Scholar David Shulman on the Gaza Bombings
Israeli strikes on Gaza killed a teenage boy and a woman on Sunday, medics said, raising the overall death toll to 165. According to emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra, one strike on the northern town of Jabaliya struck a house, killing a 14-year-old boy. Shortly afterwards, another strike killed a woman in the Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza, he said. Elsewhere, a man injured in an earlier strike died of his wounds, hiking the toll to 165, Qudra said. More than 1,000 people have been injured. The Israeli military said more than 800 rockets had been launched since its offensive began on Tuesday. Israel said it has carried out 1,320 attacks on militant targets, half against rocket launch sites, and the rest at command centres, rocket manufacturing installations, warehouses and smuggling tunnels.
