    0

    GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: Israeli warplanes pounded Gaza relentlessly on Thursday, causing a growing number of civilian casualties, as the United Nations Security Council was to meet urgently over Israel’s spiralling confrontation with Hamas. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has accused Israel of committing “genocide” in Gaza, but Israel showed no sign of letting up, with five children among 22 Palestinians killed in air strikes carried out since midnight. And Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed even tougher action against Hamas, despite growing international calls for a ceasefire in the worst confrontation in and around Gaza since 2012.
