At least 78 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in Israel's Gaza offensive, Palestinian officials said on Thursday as militants in the enclave kept up rocket attacks on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities.
As Israeli officials seemed to hint at a possible invasion by ground forces, eight members of one family, including five children, were killed in an early morning air strike that levelled two homes at Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip near the Egyptian border, the Palestinian Health ministry said.
Israel's military made no comment on what would be the deadliest strike since its began its assault on Tuesday. The defence minister spoke of "long days of fighting ahead".
French President Francois Hollande voiced his concern at the civilian deaths in the Palestinian enclave and called for a truce. A spokeswoman for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who like Hollande spoke to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said of possible escalation: "Nobody wants to see a ground invasion."
The offensive followed a build-up in violence after three Jewish students were killed in the occupied West Bank last month and a Palestinian youth died in a suspected revenge attack.
Medical officials in Hamas-dominated Gaza said at least 60 civilians, including a four-year-old girl and a boy aged five who were killed on Thursday, were among the 78 Palestinians who have died in Israeli attacks since Tuesday.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a televised statement: "So far the battle is progressing as planned but we can expect further stages in future. Up to now, we have hit Hamas and the terror organisations hard and as the battle continues we will increase strikes at them."

French President Francois Hollande can’t protect
a single Jew in his own antiSemitic country.
Fixed for accuracy.
Civilian = Suicide bomber
When it hits 78,000 let me know.....
This time Israel needs to eradicate Hamas and liquidate Gaza. Bleep to what the Anti-Semite Pro-Islamic Terrorist Globalists, and the Anti-Semite mainstream media says
Out of a population of about 1.7 million...
Those Gazians better find a way to reel in Hamas -
It’s gonna be a long, hot summer. Wake me when there is a Rachel Corrie, “look, I can eat a bull dozen one bite at a time” moment.
With nuclear weapons, arial bombardment and terrorism, there haven’t been ‘civilians’ for at least seventy years. We all live on the battlefield, whether we like it or not. I can’t get worked up over a few lousy Palestinians.
Don't worry about it bitch, when the moslem filth were blowing up Jewish buses and pizza joints, you never uttered a peep.
Those Gazians ELECTED Hamas.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Yeppers, about that ....
I'd call that a good start.
It seems the cultures are similar and both need a good pasting.
Yup. Hell, Chicongo had 82 shootings over Independence Day weekend, The death toll would've been higher had Chiconoans been better shots.
Israel should buy a few more D9 bulldozers and push every last "palestinian," and reminder of their existence, into the sea.
They need to adopt Mattis' viewpoint on dealing with terrorists and their tacit supporters: "If you f#ck with us, the survivors will write about what we do here for the next 10,000 years."

When you eradicate vermin, you don’t just destroy the destructive adult males — you take out the breeders and the spawn too.
Here’s your clue, philistines: stop being destructive vermin, and you stand a better chance of not being eradicated.
Not enough. Not even close to being enough. It is time to exterminate the Palestinians in Gaza.
The Obama administration would make it very difficult for Israel to retake Gaza. Bibi must bide his time and suffer the rocket attacks.
