Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Friday to press forward with a broad military offensive in the Gaza Strip, spurning international pressure as the death toll from the 4-day-old conflict rose above 100 people.Israel launched the offensive Tuesday in response to weeks of heavy rocket fire out of Gaza.The Israeli military said it launched fresh naval and air-strikes early Friday on the Gaza Strip, giving no further details.Medical officials in Gaza said at least 74 civilians, including 23 children, were among those killed in the unrelenting aerial bombardments which Israel began Tuesday.The offensive is the deadliest since November 2012, when around 180 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed during an Israeli air campaign to punish Hamas for missile attacks.If Israel launches a ground invasion of Gaza, it would be the first since a three-week war in the winter of 2008-09, when some 1,400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis were killed.
