A Palestinian health official says at least 100 Palestinians have been killed in the fighting in Gaza on Tuesday. The high death toll comes as Israel has escalated its military offensive in the coastal strip.

Gaza health official Ashraf al-Kidra says the toll counts those killed from midnight on Monday. The Palestinian death toll in more than three weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting has surpassed 1,100.

Since the start of Israeli ground operations in the Gaza Strip, there have been several instances when the daily Palestinian death toll surpassed 100.

    UNPROVOKED MISCHIEF IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MUSLIM DNA. ISRAEL WILL NEVER ENJOY PEACE AS LONG AS THE MUSLIMS ARE ARE NOT PUSHED IN THE SEA FROM THE GAZA STRIP. IT BECOMES THE BOUNDEN DUTY OF THE ENTIRE NON-MUSLIM WORLD TO SUPPORT AND SIDE WITH ISRAEL TO ACCOMPLISH THIS TASK . NOT DIFFICULT FOR ISRAEL. NO SOLUTION OTHERWISE.
