7 Palestinians killed including 2 kids, 25 injured in airstrike on southern Gaza


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians were killed and 25 were severely injured in an Israeli airstrike targeting a house in the southern Gaza Strip, bringing the death toll from Tuesday's airstrikes to 11, a health ministry spokesman said.

Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an seven Palestinians, among them two children under five years of age, were killed in an airstrike on Khan Younis.

Dozens of locals had gathered on the roof of the house after the family received a notice from Israeli authorities that it would be targeted, al-Qidra said.

The house belonged to the al-Kaware family.

Earlier, an Israeli airstrike on a vehicle in Gaza City killed three Palestinians.

Prior to the deaths in Gaza City, the body of Rashad Yassin, from al-Nuseirat refugee camp, was found under the rubble of a destroyed house in central Gaza.

Yassin is reportedly affiliated with Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades. more
