An Israeli air strike killed a mother and three children from the same family in northern Gaza on Sunday, medics said, on the 48th day of a bloody conflict.

The strike hit a home near Jabalia in the north of the Palestinian territory, emergency spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, taking Sunday's death toll there to at least 12.

Earlier strikes in the day killed a one-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy, Qudra said.

The conflict, which erupted on July 8 when Israel launched its operation on the besieged coastal territory, has claimed more than 2,100 Palestinian lives and those of 68 Israelis, four of them civilians.
