Israel attacks Gaza, at least 155 dead
Israeli warplanes and combat helicopters have pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, killing at least 155 people in the bloodiest day for Palestinians in more than 20 years.
Palestinian militants responded with rocket salvoes that killed an Israeli man and wounded several others, medics said. …
A five-day Israeli offensive in March killed more than 120 people, but Saturday’s death toll would be the highest for Palestinians since their 1980s uprising.
Update: death toll said to be 205.
