Blasts continue in Gaza, southern Israel

A fresh barrage of rockets from Gaza hit southern Israel on Wednesday. Fire fighters work to extinguish flames after a rocket struck here. The strike comes during the eighth day of hostilities between Israel and Gaza. Meanwhile, explosions continue to rock Gaza City, sending black smoke into the sky. Here, an Israeli strike hits a tower building that houses the offices of news agency AFP in Gaza City. Panicking residents fled the damage, and a man emerges carrying they body of his young son, killed in the blast, to hospital. The fresh Israeli air strike killed three, including the boy. More than 130 Gazans have died in Israeli strikes, mostly civilians, including more than 30 children. In all, five Israelis have died, including three civilians killed last week. International efforts to broker a ceasefire are ongoing.
