|More Palestinian civilians dead as Israel pounds Rafah and Khan Younis |
Overstretched medical teams in Rafah had a bloody morning treating casualties from Israel's overnight shelling.
Israeli fighter planes backed by tank fire pounded the town as the violence continues to escalate.
"Suddenly, we started to run after hearing the shelling. I went toward my brother's house, all his family were dead around the house. They were all killed. Nine or ten people were killed," said a Palestinian civilian in Rafah.
The blood continues to flow in Gaza after Israeli jets and tanks bombarded locations across the territory overnight.
As many as 25 members of one family were killed close to Gaza's Rafah border crossing with Egypt, while ten others died in nearby Khan Younis.
Latest estimates put the number of Palestinian dead at close to 500, mostly civilians.
Israeli forces say they killed 10 Hamas fighters as they entered Israel through two tunnels.
