Israel's 'all-out war' in Gaza targets Hamas militants at home

In messages that have left many Palestinians rattled, Israel has been placing phone calls to Gaza residents to personally warn them that their homes, or adjacent buildings, were targets. With the death toll now at 345 and the number of wounded above 1,400, Gaza doctors said they were running out of blood, bandages and other supplies. The U.N. reported that about a third of those killed as of Sunday afternoon — about 90 Palestinians — were civilians.
