Health officials said death toll was at least 364 in Gaza. But the overwhelming assault failed to hinder Hamas attacks, as rockets continued to land on Israeli soil.
Gaza's nine hospitals were overwhelmed by the huge numbers of injured. A Gaza Health Ministry official said over 1,400 were wounded over the weekend. Casualties were being taken to private clinics and even homes.
Israel launched its campaign, the deadliest against Palestinians in decades, on Saturday.
The strikes have driven Hamas leaders into hiding, but some rocket fire continued.
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip sent a deadly barrage of missiles flying deep into Israel on Monday, demonstrating that Hamas still has firepower three days into Israel's offensive.
Hamas leaders have also threatened to renew suicide attacks inside Israel.
Four Israelis, including a soldier, were killed and two seriously wounded. Sirens warning of incoming rockets sent Israelis scrambling for cover throughout the day.
