Israeli firefighters put out fire on burning cars in an apartment building parking lot after it was hit by what Israeli police say was a rocket fired by Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, in AshdodBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Ori Lewis GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli air strikes on Gaza killed four more Palestinians before dawn on Friday, raising the death toll from the four day offensive to at least 85, while a Palestinian rocket hit a fuel tanker at an Israeli petrol station causing a huge blaze. Israeli leaders, determined to end Palestinian rocket attacks deep into the Jewish state, have hinted that they could order the first ground invasion of the coastal strip in five years. The Israeli military said it launched fresh naval and air strikes early on Friday, giving no further details. An air strike on a house in Gaza City killed a man described by Palestinian officials as a doctor and pharmacist.
