Israeli planes have carried out 13 air strikes on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources have told the BBC.
Four of the strikes took place near the town of Khan Younis, where two Israeli soldiers were killed in clashes with Palestinian fighters last week.
The Israeli military has told the BBC the operation was targeting four weapons factories.
The strikes are the most serious for more than a year, says the BBC's Jon Donnison from Jerusalem.
The director of ambulance and emergency in the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Dr Muawiya Hassanein, said that three children includi
Its long list of controlled goods also includes items that critics say have no apparent military value, such as children's crayons and books.

Israel doesn't even allow crayons or books into Gaza, they live in heaven and created a hell for Gaza, but they call gazans terroists as if apartheids and blockading people in their native land won't cause any rebellion.

Looks like these air strikes by the IDF were in response to the earlier rocket attack that was launched from Gaza.

I really wish some huge earthquake would hit over there and sink the whole Israel/Gaza area. If they can't live together peacefully, it should be totally destroyed so no one can live there. The pointless battles that go on over there is just getting on everyone's nerves.
It's always either Israel is always the victim and retaliates or Hamas just wants to terrorize Israel for no reason, when neither is completely true. They could just cut the stupid state down the middle and give the Palestinians the east side and Israel the west so they have access to the ocean routes while Palestinians could get products from the rest of the middle east. Then, if need be, build a gigantic wall down that middle.
Seriously, all the arguments people have are only based on their personal views on what they believe is right, or religion, when both sides do have valid points. It all comes down to which side can talk the most supporters to their cause. There will be no end to the fighting just because Palestinians are treated like cattle and trash. So if anyone, even if Palestinians object, react by attacking Israel, they have a valid reason to retaliate.
No matter which side you support there is NO blameless side in all of that conflict. Both are responsible for what's going on there, whether it be antagonizing the other side or any other means to stretch the tension.

I didn't say I wanted all the people killed, I said I wished to see the area destroyed. Somehow magically sunk into the sea or whatever. Didn't think I would have to type out that they could leave the area first or anything like that.
