Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - Five Palestinians were killed in Israeli air strikes in Gaza Monday, medics said, raising the toll from a week-long offensive to 184, more than in the last conflict in 2012.

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said the latest strikes killed three people in southern Gaza's Rafah, including a four-year-old, and two people in Khan Yunis, also in the south.
