About 212 Palestinians recorded dead in Gaza, including nearly 100 women and children. Israel says at least 150 of those are militants, and it’s not deliberately targeting civilians in its operation against Hamas.

Hamas began firing rockets after warning Israel to withdraw from the site, triggering retaliatory air strikes. There has also been common violence in Israeli cities and towns with mixed Jewish-Arab populations.
