Israel just carried out a massive daytime airstrike campaign in Gaza — the largest since the 2014 war — with Hamas firing back with rockets on Saturday.
The Associated Press says there are no reports of casualties so far, but Getty Images has already moved photos of bodies being taken into hospital morgues.
Photos also show what appear to be residential areas being struck.
The protests and the killings have not stopped, although they have lessened in intensity.
The Israeli military maintains that it was focusing on military targets, hitting 40 Hamas targets in the past three days.
Thousands of Palestinians on Friday gathered near the Gaza fence for one of their semi-regular protests, when a 15-year-old Palestinian who tried to climb the fence into Israeli territory was shot and killed. A 20-year-old at a protest in southern Gaza was shot on the same day and had died of his wounds by Saturday.
An Israeli officer was also wounded when a grenade was launched at him.
The protests held at the fence — which is not a legal international border — are aimed at highlighting the Israeli-Egyptian blockade in place after Hamas was voted into power in Gaza after being voted into power in 2006.
The blockade has caused profound suffering in Gaza, crushing an already struggling economy. As Gazan traders told Haaretz earlier this week, closing the border is “like shooting a dying man.”
The Associated Press describes a scene that is reminiscent of the wars that have gripped the region for decades: Sirens wailing day and night, airstrikes pounding Gaza, rockets flying toward Israel, which said it intercepted at least six of them with its Iron Dome defense system.
