Palestinians walk amidst the debris of a house which police said was destroyed in an Israeli air strike in the northern Gaza StripBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Ori Lewis GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel pounded Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Saturday for a fifth day, killing nine people including two disabled women according to medics, and showed no sign of pausing despite international pressure to negotiate a ceasefire. Asked if Israel might move from the mostly aerial attacks of the past four days into a ground war in Gaza to stop militant rocket fire, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu replied: "We are weighing all possibilities and preparing for all possibilities." "No international pressure will prevent us from acting with all power," he told reporters in Tel Aviv on Friday, a day after a phone call with U.S. President Barack Obama about the worst flare-up in Israeli-Palestinian violence in almost two years. Washington affirmed Israel's right to defend itself in a statement from the Pentagon on Friday.

The residential buildings, four to five floors high and set close together, collapsed before dawn in a neighbourhood built in the 1960s and 1970s. Building collapses and accidents are common in Casablanca and highlight the strain on the infrastructure of one of North Africa's biggest and most densely populated cities.
