The death toll in Gaza hit 264 on Friday as Israel pressed a ground offensive on the 11th day of an assault aimed at stamping out cross-border rocket fire, Palestinian medics said.
And an Israeli soldier was killed during the launch of land operations on Thursday night, raising the death toll on the Israeli side to two, the army said.
Shortly before midday (0900 GMT), three Palestinian teenagers were killed by Israeli tank shelling near the northern town of Beit Hanun, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, raising Friday’s toll to 23 dead.
Earlier, four other Palestinians were killed in several attacks on Beit Hanun, two of them by Israeli tank fire shortly after midnight.
Medics also found the body of a man killed in a strike south of Gaza City. Another Palestinian died in Shejaiya, east of Gaza City, Qudra said.
Earlier, two men from the Shami family were killed in the southern city of Khan Yunis.
And four members of the same family were also killed in another strike on the city, he said. Elsewhere in Khan Yunis, three more people were killed by tank fire.
A five-month-old baby was among five Gazan killed in separate Israeli attacks on the southern city of Rafah.
Figures provided by the Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights show that civilians account for more than 80 percent of the victims of Israel’s assault since July 8 to halt rocket fire by militants of the Islamist movement Hamas which controls the coastal strip.
At least 1,920 Palestinians have also been wounded.
Since the Israeli operation began, at least 1,164 rockets fired from Gaza have struck Israel, and another 320 have been shot down by the Iron Dome air defence system, army figures show.
On the Israeli side, a civilian was killed by rocket fire earlier this week, and a soldier was killed overnight in Gaza. Four Israelis have been seriously injured.
Has anything changed since Burning Man’s sex assault and labor issues were exposed?
The last weekend in August marks the start of Burning Man, a week-long, festival in the Nevada desert consisting of freewheeling performance art, fanciful costumes, and a lot of drugs. The anarchic party with more than 50,000 attendees constitutes a pilgrimage for many attendees, lured by the promise of leaving the “default world” behind in exchange for a transformative or even spiritual experience.
Truckers are facing a ‘bloodbath’ in their industry — and it’s turning many in the pro-Trump group against him: report

The political trends in trucking are not insignificant. According to the American Trucking Associations, there were an estimated 3.5 million truck drivers in 2018. RTS Financial has found that there are 7.4 million jobs total “tied to the trucking industry.” And Business Insider reported that nearly 90 percent of truckers are registered voters, higher than the general population.
WATCH: Trump’s collusion with Russia is now a topic for impeachment — along with obstruction and racism
President Donald Trump's interactions with Russia are now a topic of the impeachment investigation.
"There was an important development in support for impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives today," MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell reported Tuesday. "Important both in who the new support comes from and what that support is based on."
"Congresswoman Lauren Underwood of Illinois is one of the freshmen Democrats who flipped a Republican district last year in winning her election. She brings the total number of House Democrats supporting impeachment now to 126 -- a majority of the Democrats' 235 members of the House," he explained.
