Wednesday night, Israeli war planes struck a residential area, claimed to be a training site for the Salah Eddin Brigade, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees. Three Palestinians were killed, including a three-year old girl and three others were wounded.
More than 170 Palestinians, the majority of them civilians, have been killed and over a thousand injured in the Israeli military offensive against the Gaza Strip which started on June 28.
Israel claims its offensive aims at freeing a captured Israeli soldier and stopping the Palestinian resistance fighters from firing homemade Qassam shells at Israel.
Soldier Gilad Shalit was captured by Palestinian resistance fighters in a military operation carried out on June 26 in which five Israeli soldiers where killed and several were wounded.
