Death toll reaches 14 as Israel targets northern Gaza


BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes on the northern Gaza Strip killed three Palestinians on Tuesday evening, bringing the total death toll in Israel's latest assault on the besieged enclave to 14.

Ahmad Moussa Habib, 48, and Ahmad Ahed Habib, 19, were killed after an airstrike targeted a tuk-tuk vehicle in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood in Gaza City, medics said.

Fakhri Saleh Ajjouri was reported killed after an airstrike targeted a motorcycle near Abraj al-Sheikh Zayed in the northern Gaza Strip.

Earlier, seven Palestinians were killed and 25 were severely injured in an Israeli airstrike targeting a house in the southern Gaza Strip, a medical official said.

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