The Israeli military's "pinpoint strikes" on houses in Gaza have killed whole families and children but few of the wanted men they are meant to target because they have long made themselves scarce, Palestinian residents say.After six days of cross-border barrages between Gaza militants and Israel, at least 130 of the 166 Palestinians who have been killed were civilians, including 35 children, Palestinian medical officials say.Early Saturday, two disabled women were killed and four other people seriously wounded when an Israeli tank shell struck a rehabilitation center in the eastern part of Gaza City, Palestinian medics said.The Israeli military described a strike on the home of the Kaware family in which eight people died as a "tragic mistake," saying residents had not heeded their warning.A rushed voice crackled over the Gaza police radio frequency Friday, reporting an airstrike on a family house in Beit Hanoun.Nearby, hundreds of neighbors gathered spontaneously around a household that had received a phone call from the Israeli military warning that a strike was imminent.Israel's military says it has aborted planned attacks when neighbors gather in numbers to defend homes.
