184 dead, 1,287 hurt in Gaza strikes so far

Israeli airstrikes in Gaza have so far left 184 people dead and 1,287 wounded in seven days, according to Palestinian emergency rescue services.

The death toll now exceeds that of Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

Earlier today, 10 Palestinians, including a child, were killed in airstrikes, and two others — a man and a woman — died of injuries they sustained yesterday.

Also killed in today’s shelling is a 17-year-old who was shot down by a missile while riding a moped in the city of Khan Yunis, according to Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra.

In the same area, a 37-year-old man is killed when a missile strikes a group of people.

A 60-year-old man is killed in a strike against a house in Deir al-Balah, and two others are killed in separate strikes on the Palestinian enclave.

In the early evening, raids target the south of the Strip, killing three people, including a child, and two others in Rafah and Khan Yunis.
Since the beginning of the Israeli operation Tuesday, four Israelis were seriously wounded by rocket fire, but none were killed.
