Smoke and flames rise from a building in Gaza Sunday, as Israel launches rockets for the sixth day running. Palestinian militants later retaliated with two missiles, which were intercepted. Palestinian families took shelter in a local school after Israel warned of more attacks... ...while these Palestinian-Americans prepared to leave. Diana Mushtaha is visiting from Texas. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PALESTINIAN AMERICAN, DIANA MUSHTAHA, SAYING: "You know, the worst part of everything that's going on here is that I am in danger because of the 3.1 billion that the U.S. is giving Israel every year and we have been for six days trying to talk to the embassy, trying to talk to the consulate telling them it is not safe here and this is not life..." At least 149 Palestinians have been killed since the offensive began Tuesday, many of them civilians. No Israeli has been killed by rocket salvos from Gaza due in part to Iron Dome, a partly U.S.-funded missile interceptor system. Israel says it tries to avoid civilian casualties, but accuses Islamist Hamas of placing weaponry and gunmen in residential areas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: (SOUNDBITE) (Hebrew) ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, SAYING: "Hamas uses the residents of Gaza as a human shield and is bringing disaster on the residents of Gaza, and therefore the responsibility for any harm done to civilians in Gaza, which we regret, the responsibility is that of Hamas, and its partners, and them alone." Netanyahu also told his cabinet that the offensive "may take a long time" and that "the Israeli army is prepared for all possibilities."
