(Reuters) - The Israeli military's "pinpoint strikes" on houses in Gaza have killed whole families and children but few of the wanted men they are meant to target because they have long made themselves scarce, Palestinian residents say.
After five days of cross-border
barrages between Gaza militants and Israel's air force, at least 81 of
the 121 Palestinians killed have been civilians, including 25 children,
according to Palestinian medical officials.
While relatively few
militants and even fewer of their commanders have been killed, according
to Hamas sources and media reports, Israel appears more determined than
in previous wars to bring the fight to their homes in the densely
populated enclave hugging the Mediterranean coast.
