Gaza Palestinian medics carry a man wounded during an Israeli army operation in the northern Gaza Strip, into hospital in Beit Lahiya, Saturday, March 1, 2008. Thirty-three Gazans, including at least 16 civilians, died in Israeli-Palestinian violence that escalated sharply Saturday, clouding an upcoming peacemaking mission by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Two children were among those killed in some of the fiercest fighting in the Gaza Strip since Islamic Hamas militants seized control there in June. The latest round of clashes, which began Wednesday, has renewed threats of an Israeli invasion of Gaza to crush militant rocket squads that bombard southern Israel daily."photo by Fady Adwan"
