Palestinian sources reported that Israeli jetfighters targeted several Palestinian homes in several parts of the Gaza Strip.  Targets included blacksmith workshops, local schools and civilian vehicles.

Medical sources stated that during Friday morning raids, three Palestinians were killed, and at least 20 others were injured. Among those killed was Fo’ad al Mutawak, who was killed when his home, located in Jabalyia refugee camp, in the northern part of the Coastal Region, was attacked by the Israeli Air Force.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that by Friday morning, the death toll in Gaza, due to the Israeli Air Force bombardments, now stands at 428. The ministry added that there are an additional 2,220 injured, among them at least 300 are in critical condition.

Israel embarked on its military operation on Saturday December 27th, coming only days after the sixth-month Egyptian-mediated cease fire between Hamas, that controls Gaza, and Israel finished on December 16th, 2008.
