STORYLINE:

Israeli troops battled Hamas militants in Gaza on the second day of a ground operation on Saturday, as the Palestinian death toll from the 12-day offensive topped 300, a Gaza health official said.

The sound of tank fire and heavy machine guns mixed with the mosques' morning call to prayer along the Gaza-Israel border. Several buildings were destroyed by the Israeli airstrikes in Beit Lahiya and Khan Younis.

A Health Ministry spokesman said overnight airstrikes killed 12 people, raising the death toll from the offensive to 310 Palestinians.

The Israeli military said three soldiers were wounded in overnight fighting, one seriously. Israeli troops were staying close to the border and have yet to enter heavily populated areas.

An Israeli soldier was killed after the start of the ground operation, and an Israeli civilian was killed earlier this week.
