Israeli Airstrike Kills at Least 11 in Gaza

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- An Israeli missile in Gaza Sunday killed at least 11 people, including four children, according to published media reports.

The deadly attack likely will diminish chances for a cease-fire.

Sunday's airstrike killed five women and four small children, according to The Associated Press, which cited a Gaza health official.

Israeli officials said the attack was aimed at killing a militant involved in recent rocket attacks against Israel, The New York Times reported.

Also Sunday, Israel aircraft attacked a Hamas radio headquarters in a building that had foreign journalists inside, The Wall Street Journal said. Meanwhile, militant rocket attacks caused alarm in southern Israel, the Journal added.

The escalating violence has killed more than 50 people, according to the Times.

"There's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders," Obama said, according to the Times. "We are fully supportive of Israel's right to defend itself."
