Israel raid in Gaza City kills 4 children

GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Four children were killed in Gaza City on Wednesday, medics said, in Israeli shelling witnessed by AFP journalists.

All four were on the beach when the attack took place, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said, with several injured children taking refuge at a nearby hotel where journalists were staying.

They were reportedly attacked by Israeli naval boats, witnesses told Ma'an, and were members of the same family.

The latest attack brings the Palestinian death toll since midnight to 13, with over 200 killed since Israel's assault began last week.

A Gaza-based rights group says over 80 percent of the victims are civilians. more
