Israeli tank fire kills 4 Palestinian civilians including a child.
Four Palestinians including a child have been killed and 25 others injured in the latest Israeli raid on Gaza, medics have said.
Israeli tank fire killed a 10-year-old boy Friday after 10 Israelis tanks along with two armored bulldozers, backed by two assault helicopters entered the coastal region earlier on the day.
Ten-year-old Riyad Owayssi stood with dozens more children near the tanks when he was hit, AFP reported.
The other three were killed when tank fire hit a house.
A further 25 Palestinians were wounded, including three children
who suffered severe wounds, medics said.
Meanwhile, the Israeli military offensive met fierce resistance from Gaza fighters.
Since Israeli and the Palestinian officials met in the US-sponsored Annapolis gathering to revive the so-called peace talks in November, at least 385 Palestinians have been killed.
