Gaza violence: Reports and analysis

Three people have been killed as rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel, amid escalating violence.

They died when a four-storey building in the town of Kiryat Malachi was hit.

It marks the first Israeli fatalities since Israel killed Hamas' military chief in Gaza on Wednesday.

Fifteen Palestinians, mainly militants but also children, have reportedly been killed in the continuing Israeli operation. About 200 rockets have been fired into Israel, the army says.
