The death toll from Israel's week-long attack  on Gaza rose Tuesday to 192, after another six Palestinians died, four of them in strikes .

Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said three people were killed in two separate air strikes on the southern city of Khan Yunis.

And two other men in the city succumbed to injuries sustained in earlier raids, he said.

Also in the south, a woman was killed in an earlier strike on Rafah, taking Tuesday's toll to six dead, he said.

So far, no Israelis have been killed in the week-long fighting in and around Gaza, with only four people seriously injured.

The Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights said on Sunday, when the toll stood at over 150, that three quarters of the dead were civilians.

And on Monday, a senior UN official said more than a quarter were children.

The bloodiest day so far was Saturday when 56 Gazans were killed.
