Palestinian rocket damages residential building in Gaza

With no sign of an end to the fighting, casualties spread further afield, with Palestinians reporting on Friday (May 14) 11 deaths in the occupied West Bank amid clashes between protesters and Israeli security forces.

At least 132 people have been killed in Gaza since Monday (May 10), including 32 children and 21 women, and 950 others wounded, Palestinian medical officials said.

Among the eight dead in Israel was a soldier patrolling the Gaza border and six civilians, including two children, Israeli authorities said.

Cross-border hostilities between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have been accompanied by violence in mixed communities of Jews and Arabs in Israel. Synagogues have been attacked and street fights have broken out, prompting Israel's president to warn of civil war.
