International Middle East Media Center/The Muslim News: Israeli airstrikes on southern and central Gaza have killed 14 people so far, on Thursday, including seven women and children. The UN Security Council is to hold an emergency meeting on the escalating violence, Thursday.The total number of dead is now at least 64, including 10 women and 18 children, according to medical reports.

UK PM David Cameron rang Wednesday evening Israeli PM Netanyahu giving him support on the bombings of Gaza.The Prime Minister “strongly condemned the appalling attacks being carried out by Hamas against Israeli civilians.” Cameron “reiterated the UK’s staunch support for Israel in the face of such attacks, and underlined Israel’s right to defend itself from them.”

Ma’an News Agency has reported that the first strike targeted a coffee shop in the city of Khan Younis, according to emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra. He said that six men were killed and at least 15 other people were wounded.

The second strike occurred in Nuseirat refugee camp of central Gaza, on the home of Raed Shalat, killing him and wounding several others.

Three women and four children were killed during gurther strikes on two Khan Younis houses, according to al-Qidra.

Israeli troops killed also two resistance fighters in a seafront gunfight, on Wednesday, close to the site of an attack on a military base from the previous day, according to media reports.

Today is the third day of Israel’s largest military campaign against Gaza since 2012.

The total number of dead is now at least 64, including 10 women and 18 children, according to medical reports.

The United Nations Security Council is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting, Thursday, in regard to the escalating violence in the region, following requests by Arab envoys and UN chief Ban Ki-moon.

The growing violence has seen a rise in rocket attacks from Gaza aimed at Israel’s cities and a nuclear reactor.

Three grad missiles were also fired at Israel from the village of al-Arja, south of the Egyptian city of Rafah, on Wednesday evening, according to Egyptian officials.

According to Ma’an’s report, the council meeting could aim to adopt a declaration condemning the rocket attacks on Israel while also “asking restraint on both sides,” a Western diplomat said, adding that it was “difficult, but not impossible,” to get an agreement on such a proposal among the body’s members.

On Tuesday, Israeli officials had claimed that around seventy homemade shells were fired from the Gaza Strip toward southern Israel.

These shells are crude constructions amounting to little more than tubes with dynamite placed inside of them, which are then fired blindly, without any possibility of aiming them. No injuries or damage have been reported from the shells.
