Death Toll Rises as Israeli Attacks on Gaza Continue

Gaza City, July 15 (RHC)-- Thousands of Gazans have fled their homes amid a relentless Israeli bombing campaign that’s now killed more than 190 people, most of them civilians, since it began a week ago.

The United Nations estimates more than 80 percent of the dead are civilian, of whom 20 percent are children --- at least 36 dead. More than 1,200 Palestinians have been wounded, nearly two-thirds women and children.

And more than 940 homes have reportedly been severely damaged or destroyed, some 400,000 people are without electricity, and 17,000 people are displaced.
