Gaza Death Toll Tops 135 As Fighting Rages On
Officials said Saturday Israeli air strikes pounded more targets in Gaza, including a rehabilitation center and a mosque believed to be hiding rockets, raising the death toll to at least 135 since the offensive began five days ago. Palestinian health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Kidra told NBC News at least 75 percent of the dead were civilians and 40 percent were women and children. Reuters reported Saturday’s air strikes left nine dead, including two disabled women at the rehabilitation center. The U.N. Security Council voiced its concern about the welfare of civilians on both sides of the conflict, calling for a ceasefire between Palestinians and Israelis on Saturday.
