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 the Israeli assault on Gaza.

The strike hit a home near Jabalia in the north of the Palestinian territory, emergency spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, taking Sunday's Palestnian 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 assault which erupted on July 8 has claimed more than 2,100 Palestinian lives and those of 68 Israelis, four of them civilians.
