The death toll from Israeli air strikes on Gaza has risen to 100, Palestinian sources say.

The latest deaths were of two people in a car in the Bureij area on Friday, they said.

Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes since launching its operation on Tuesday to stop rocket fire from Gaza.

Militants there continue to fire on Israel, causing damage and injuries.

The US earlier offered to help with a truce in a call to Israel’s PM.

The Palestinian health ministry says in addition to those killed, 675 people – mainly civilians – have been injured.

Israel says “dozens of terrorists” are among the dead.

Overnight in Gaza, an Israeli air strike on a house in Rafah killed five people – three men and two women – the health ministry said.

It said a second strike killed a girl in Rafah, while one militant was killed when his motorcycle was hit north of Gaza City.

In Israel, three people were injured, one seriously, when a rocket hit the petrol station in Ashdod on Friday morning, Israeli officials say.

Three rockets were also shot down by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system over Tel Aviv, the Israeli military said.

The Lebanese military also confirmed that militants in the south of the country fired three rockets into northern Israel in the early hours of Friday and that Israel had shelled the area in response. No injuries were reported.
