Members of civil defence and another man try to extinguish a fire caused after what police said was an Israeli air strike on a house, in Gaza City July 10, 2014. Israel pressed on with a punishing aerial offensive in Gaza for a third day on Thursday, killing eight members of a family including five children in a predawn strike, Palestinian officials said, while militants fired rockets at Israeli cities. The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the deadliest single bombing raid since the start of the offensive on Tuesday. The attack destroyed at least two homes in Khan Younis in southern Gaza, killing the eight people, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. Sixty-one Palestinians have been killed in the violence, more than 50 of them civilians, Palestinian medical officials said. Photo by Ezz Zanoon
