|Israeli air strike kills five children in Gaza as the violence shows no sign of stopping |
A night time Israeli air strike killed seven Palestinians including five children - according to Gaza medics - as Israel vowed to intensify attacks on Hamas militants.
It raises the unconfirmed death toll to at least 60, many of them civilians, since Israel began its offensive aimed at halting Hamas rocket fire into southern Israel.
The worsening violence has triggered a meeting of the UN Security Council which will sit to discuss the crisis.
