Israel's attacks on Gaza strengthened Friday after bombs killed a top Hamas commander, African Free Press reports. The attacks, now entering their seventh day, have resulted in the deaths of at least 420 and more than 2000 injuries. The UN has said that nearly 25 per cent of the dead are civilians.
