GAZA/JERUSALEM:Two Israeli soldiers were killed in a cross-boarder attack by Hamas militants on Saturday, the army said, as the Palestinian death toll from the conflict rose above 300 with no diplomatic solution in sight.One Hamas gunman was killed, while the rest of the group managed to escape back into the Gaza Strip, the military added.The land incursion has so far failed to subdue Hamas and its allies, who fired more than 90 rockets into Israel on Saturday, the Israeli army said.Gaza officials said at least 335 Palestinians, including 70 children, have been killed in the 12-day conflict -- about 100 in the last 48 hours alone. The sound of explosions rocked Gaza through the day, while sirens repeatedly sounded in towns and cities in southern and central Israel, warning of approaching missiles.Eight members of a Palestinian family, including a six-month old baby and two children aged three and 13, died overnight when an Israeli shell hit their house in Beit Hanoun, in northeastern Gaza, officials said.
