Gaza deathsIsraeli airstrikes on Gaza killed four more Palestinians before dawn on Friday, raising the death toll from the four-day offensive to at least 102, including dozens of civilians, while a Palestinian rocket hit a fuel tanker at an Israeli gas station, causing a blaze. The developments came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a news conference Friday that Israel will continue its offensive until rocket fire out of Gaza is halted.

"I will end it when our goals are realized. And the overriding goal is to restore the peace and quiet," Netanyahu said, brushing off a question about possible cease-fire efforts.

The international community has called on the two sides to end the aggression and avoid any action on the ground. President Barack Obama told Netanyahu by telephone on Thursday that the United States was willing to help negotiate a cease-fire, the White House said. A spokeswoman for Secretary of State John Kerry said: "Nobody wants to see a ground invasion."

A Friday airstrike on a house in Gaza City killed a man described by Palestinian officials as a doctor and pharmacist. Medics and residents said an Israeli aircraft also bombed a three-story house in the southern town of Rafah, killing three people.
