Gaza death toll rises as Israel kills second top militant – BBC News

Israel has killed a second top militant from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group, as the death toll continues to rise from air strikes in Gaza.

Six children and several PIJ fighters – including leaders Khaled Mansour and Tayseer Jabari – are among the 32 Palestinians reported to have died.

Nearly 600 Palestinian rockets and mortars have been fired at Israel since Friday, an Israeli official said.

Israel says it launched the operations due to an "immediate threat" from PIJ.

Gaza’s health ministry blamed "Israeli aggression" for the deaths of Palestinians.
