    Six-year-old Suzy Eshkuntana woke up alone in Gaza’s largest hospital where she was taken by rescuers from the ruins of her home, which had been destroyed by a pre-dawn Israeli strike that killed her mother and all four of her siblings.

    The young girl, trapped for seven hours under the debris, was reunited in Shifa hospital with her father, who was also being treated for his wounds.

    The Palestinian family’s home was hit in Israeli air strikes early on Sunday in Gaza City, a wave of attacks that Gaza health officials said killed 42 people including 10 children and raised the death toll in Gaza from a week of bombardment to 192.

    Israel says it is attacking the militant Islamist Hamas movement that controls the densely populated Gaza Strip, which, along with Islamic Jihad and other militant groups, have fired 2,800 rockets towards Israeli cities.

    Those barrages have killed 10 people in Israel, including two children. They have also sent millions of Israelis scrambling to “safe rooms” and shelters as rocket warning sirens go off at all hours of the day and night.

    The strike on the Eshkuntana home was in the same area as an Israeli attack on a militant tunnel system in Gaza, which collapsed and damaged several houses above, leading to unintended civilian casualties, the military said.
