  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Israel warns it will bomb Gaza schools as strikes escalate” – below is their description.

    The Israeli military launched another series of air raids on the Gaza Strip early on Monday, hours after Israel’s caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the attacks on the Palestinian enclave would rage on.

    Explosions rocked Gaza City from north to south in a bombardment that was heavier, wider and lasted longer than the air raids that killed at least 42 Palestinians and wounded dozens more on Sunday. One Palestinian was reported injured.

    At least 198 people, including 58 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip since the latest violence began a week ago. More than 1,300 Palestinians were also wounded.

    Ten people, including two children, have been killed in Israel.

    Israel has also warned the United Nations that it planned to bomb two Gaza schools, which are also used to accommodate refugees.
