Gaza death toll hits 205

The Palestinian death toll in the Gaza Strip climbs to 205, medics in the coastal enclave say.

A strike on a house in the southern city of Rafah kills two men, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra tells AFP, and a separate raid kills a young man who witnesses said was an Islamic Jihad militant.

Further Rafah strikes leaves two men dead, Qudra says, while a raid on the home of Mohammed al-Arjani in the southern city of Khan Yunis kills his son Abdullah, 19.

About an hour later, tank fire from inside Israel hits the eastern part of Khan Yunis, killing one person, Qudra says, later adding that another man was slain there, 33-year-old Mahmud Abu Dakka.
