GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Israeli tank fire killed five people in the Gaza Strip, including a five-month-old baby, early on Friday, medics said.

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra announced the deaths as Israel said it was launching a ground operation after 10 days of conflict with the Palestinian Hamas group.

The deaths included a five-month-old baby and a 22-year-old killed in separate incidents of tank shelling in southern Rafah.

Qudra also reported two men killed in tank shelling in northern Beit Hanun, and then an additional death in Rafah.

The five deaths were the first reported after Israel began its ground operation, and raised the overall toll in Gaza since July 8 to 246.

One Israeli has been killed in the violence by rocket fire from Gaza.

How can these barbaric zionists sleep at night? The killing fields of Gaza are flowing with the blood of children deliberately targeted by these butchers. What kind of evil society does this? Critical that the world responds to stop this evil and make these armed to the teeth terrorist accountable for all the death and destruction and end the brutal imprisonment. Gazan's must have the right of return to their lands and homes and receive compensation for all the loss of life and destruction.

Oh, so defending yourself is barbaric? But launching rockets and mortars into another country ISN'T? If hamas hadn't launched rockets into Israel for the past several years, if they hadn't sent terrorist commando raids via tunnels into Israel, if they hadn't tried to bring heavy weapons into Gaza via the ocean, THEN GAZA WOULD BE AT PEACE ENJOYING THE SUMMER. Stand-Up-For-Gaza, rational thinking demands you recognize Hamas as the source of this tragedy.

How does DELIBERATELY MURDERING CHILDREN count as self defense? Zionist Israel is the true terrorist of the world. Look up the history guy, Israel attacked and settled long before "rocket fire". And what kind of damage do the "rockets"//firecrackers do? It's a joke. Laughable. Israel bulldozes homes, discriminates , and oppresses the Palestinians and you dare call it "self defense". Jews lived in peace with Muslims in Palestine long before the Zionists came and took over their land.
