At least seven Palestinians were injured when two homes were targeted in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, by Israeli warplanes Wednesday night.

Abu Salah family’s home was also targeted during the continued Israeli airstrikes over the city. Three injuries were reported during the attack, the sources added.
During the past two days, 15 homes were targeted by Israeli warplanes in Khan Younis, which led to their complete destruction in addition to 8 neighboring homes.
Along the same line, dozens of Palestinians were killed while others were injured on Wednesday after targeting several civilian homes in different parts of Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, Hamas’s spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said at dawn Thursday that the Israeli policy of targeting civilian buildings regardless of the presence of children and women reflects the Israeli occupation’s failure in facing Palestinian resistance.

Three Palestinian citizens were killed while three others sustained severe wounds Thursday morning in a barrage of Israeli airstrikes that rocked their car, moving across northern Gaza, leading to the rise of the death toll among Gazan civilians to 78.

According to a survey conducted by PIC reporters in Gaza, at least 78 citizens were killed so far while more than 550 others sustained severe injuries. Dozens of civilians’ homes have been reduced to rubble all along the random Israeli raids.
Death toll and the rate of injured Palestinians have been dramatically on the rise ever since the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) initiated such a brutal military campaign against the Gaza Strip over the past two days.
The raids took away the lives of dozens of Gazan children, some of whom have been identified by PIC team as follows: one-and-a-half year old child Muhammad Malaka, 4-year-old Muhammad Khalaf al-Nawasra, Abdulah Ramadan Abu Ghazal, 5, Siraj Iyad Abd al-Al, 8, Basem Salem Kawara’a, 10, Meriam Atiya al-Arja,11, Muhammad Arif, 13, and Moussa Habib 16.
