Israeli air strikes killed at least eight Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and also hit a mosque in Beit Hanoun on Monday. Meanwhile, militants and kept up rocket fire on Israel, as Egypt pressed on with efforts to broker a truce.
Gazans said they received new messages on mobile phones and landlines saying Israel would target any house used to launch “terror attacks” and telling civilians to leave areas used by militants.
Israeli aircraft attacked four homes in the Gaza town of Beit Lahiya, near the Israeli border, killing two women and a girl, witnesses and health officials said.
Locals told Reuters a member of the Hamas militant group that dominates Gaza lived in one of the dwellings. Separate attacks elsewhere in the Gaza Strip killed two other Palestinians, said officials.
Militants launched about 40 rockets at southern Israel on Monday, causing no casualties, the army said.
