Palestinian civilians in densely-populated Gaza have no place to hide from Israel's military offensive and children are paying the heaviest price, the United Nations said Tuesday.More than 600 people have been killed in the coastal enclave, which has an estimated 4,500 people per square kilometer, Laerke said.Twenty-nine Israelis, 27 of them soldiers, have died.But the overwhelming majority of people killed so far in the conflict are Palestinians, including 121 Gaza children under age 18 who make up one-third of the total civilian casualties, Juliette Touma of the U.N. Children's Fund said. The World Health Organization said that 18 health facilities in Gaza have been damaged, including three hospitals.
