Israel Continues Attacks In Gaza Strip

12.30.08 | FL News Team

Israel is pressing on with airstrikes against what the Jewish state says are Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. The death toll has risen above 345 with more than 800 people wounded since the violence started on Saturday.

The UN has called for a ceasefire, but Israel has rejected any truce until cross-border rocket fire from Hamas militants is ended. As the bloodshed continues, global calls for an end to the fighting are growing louder. European Union foreign ministers are scheduled to meet today in Paris to discuss the situation.
