Palestinians say hundreds killed in Gaza in Israeli retaliation for a Hamas assault into Israel

JERUSALEM — The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza says at least 198 people have been killed and at least 1,610 wounded in the territory in Israel’s retaliation after a wide-ranging Hamas assault into Israel. 

The toll came as Israel has carried out a number of airstrikes in Gaza and has clashed with gunmen at the border fence around the coastal territory. 

Several hours after the incursion began, Hamas militants were still fighting gunbattles inside several Israeli communities in a surprising show of strength that shook the country.
