GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Dozens of Palestinian families trapped by clashes between Hamas militants and Israeli troops were scrambling to flee a southern Gaza Strip neighborhood Wednesday as Israel reported that two more of its soldiers have died in the conflict. The Palestinian Red Crescent says it was trying to evacuate about 250 people from near Khan Younis, which has been under Israeli tank shelling and drones strikes since early Wednesday.

As the fighting near Khan Younis rages, Israel's military said two more soldiers had been killed, raising the military's death toll to 29. That doesn't include one Israeli soldier whose remains have not yet been found. Two Israeli civilians have also died in the 15-day conflict. The fighting has killed at least 630 Palestinians.
