An Israeli air strike on this car in the Gaza Strip killed three people Wednesday. The dead were all members of the same family, say Palestinian officials. Israel is calling on locals to evacuate the area. Recorded phone messages to many of Gaza's 100,000 residents warn "Failure to comply will endanger your lives and the lives of your family." Israel, which briefly held its fire under a truce brokered by Egypt, says it's seen no decrease in Palestinian rockets and is now escalating its military offensive. Shelling killed at least seven Palestinians on Wednesday, bringing the death toll in Gaza to over 200, most of them civilians.
