Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - Israeli tank fire killed two people, including a five-month-old baby, in the southern Gaza city of Rafah early Friday, medics said.

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra announced the deaths as Israel said it was launching a ground operation after 10 days of conflict with the Palestinian Hamas group.
