ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Israeli air strikes shook Gaza every few minutes on Wednesday (July 9), as militants kept up rocket fire at Israel's heartland in intensifying warfare that Palestinian officials said has killed at least 37 people in the Hamas-dominated enclave.
Local residents reported hundreds of attacks on Wednesday. The Israeli military said it has targeted 550 Hamas sites, including 60 rocket launchers, over the past two days.
Israel's military said concealed rocket launching sites, weapons storage facilities, tunnels and command and control positions, as well as the homes of gunmen, were hit. Palestinian officials said at least 25 houses were either destroyed or damaged and not all of the dwellings belonged to militants.
At least 29 civilians, including five children, were among the 37 Palestinian dead in two days of fighting, and 230 people have been wounded, hospital officials said.
In Zeitoun neighborhood a woman and her one-and-a-half-year-old were killed.
