7 killed outside mosque in Khan Yunis

An Israeli air strike on the southern Gaza Strip kills seven people on day 12 of Operation Protective Edge in the coastal enclave.

The strike hits a group of people outside a mosque in the southern city of Khan Yunis, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra tells AFP, adding that three of the dead are from the same family.

One woman is among those killed, Qudra says.

The deaths bring the toll from the Israeli operation to stamp out rocket fire from Gaza to 303, many of them women and children.

One Israeli civilian and one Israeli soldier have been killed since the campaign started on July 8.
