    GAZA, January 21 (RIA Novosti) - At least two Palestinian militants were killed during Israeli air attacks on the Gaza Strip on Sunday, medics in the Palestinian enclave said on Monday.

    Israel has been conducting air attacks on Gaza as well as ground raids into the enclave, controlled by the hard-line Islamic group Hamas since June, to curb rocket attacks into southern areas of the Jewish state.

    Israel has killed about 40 Palestinians in the past week. Militants in the Palestinian enclave have launched more than 200 rockets at Israel in the same period, according to the Israeli military.

    Fighting escalated on Tuesday when an Israeli raid on Gaza killed 19 people.
