(Op minder dan halve kracht, met slechte verbinding)Israeli forces on Saturday pressed ahead with a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, where Palestinian militants kept firing rockets deep into Israel’s heartland, pushing the death toll past 300 in almost two weeks of conflict. The death toll on Saturday morning hit 24 after Palestinian civil defense rescue teams pulled ten bodies out of the debris of a home in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip as Israeli forces continued their military offensive against the Gaza Strip by air, sea, and land for the twelfth day.The killings follow the deadliest day in the conflict so far, after Israel killed at least 63 Palestinians and injured more than 400 on the first day of their ground invasion of the besieged coastal enclave. Saturday morning’s deaths bring the total death toll of 12 days of Israeli military offensive in Gaza to 316 in addition to 2268 injuries, according to al-Qidra. The spokesman highlighted that Friday was the deadliest day of Israel’s military aggression on Gaza with 52 Palestinians killed as of midnight.The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that at least 71 children, 25 women and 17 elderly people have been killed in Israel’s assault on Gaza as of Friday night. Since the invasion began, more than 135 rockets have been fired from Gaza, though many were shot down by Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense shield, including some over the country’s commercial capital Tel Aviv, causing no casualties.
