More Palestinians are killed in the Gaza Strip as Israel continues its assault on the besieged enclave. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the death toll from Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip over the past week has now mounted to 192. Another 14-hundred Gazans have been injured. Since last Tuesday, Israeli warplanes have struck more than a thousand targets across the besieged enclave, which is home to around one-point-eight million Palestinians. Medical sources say the number of fatalities has already exceeded the death toll from the 2012 conflict. Meanwhile, Israeli troops and tanks remain amassed on Gaza border in preparation for a possible ground assault. According to the United Nations, 80 percent of the casualties have been civilians.
