Heavy Bombing of Gaza Strip by Israel on Tuesday

Israel escalates its campaign against Hamas, striking symbols of the militant group’s control in Gaza and firing tank shells that Palestinian officials say shut down the strip’s only power plant in the heaviest bombardment in the war so far.

At least 100 residents of Gaza Strip were killed on Tuesday, bringing the death toll of the recent conflict to over 1100.

Dozens of attacks on Tuesday damaged government offices, the homes of Hamas leaders, the power plant, a central Mosque, and a television station.

Israel has reported 53 soldiers killed and three civilians killed.
