Ongoing Israeli airstrikes have so far killed 115 Palestinians in Gaza, including 27 children and 11 women, the Ministry of Health reported on Friday.
Meanwhile, 600 people have been reported wounded since the strikes began more than three days ago, according to the ministry.
The Israeli military said it had struck Gaza more than 600 times since Monday evening while Hamas has fired more than 1,750 rockets towards Israel, with most of them having been intercepted and destroyed.
In recent days, tensions have soared over Israel's planned eviction of Palestinians from a district in east Jerusalem, which Israel sees as part of its eternal capital but is considered occupied by the United Nations.
