Gaza death toll at 165 as deadly Israeli strikes continue

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel's military assault on Gaza continued for a sixth day on Sunday with the Gaza Ministry of Health saying 165 Palestinians have been killed and over 1,000 injured.

The latest airstrike on Sunday killed Layla Hasan al-Udat in al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra said.

Ashraf Zurub, 21, on Sunday died from wounds sustained a day earlier in airstrikes while Husam Ibrahim al-Najjar, 14, was killed in Sunday attacks in northern Gaza.

Earlier, 80-year-old Hijaziyya al-Hilou was killed in the Shujaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City when an Israeli missile hit the al-Hilou family home.

Medics said it was a miracle the rest of the family survived the attack.

Israeli warplanes intensified air raids overnight, targeting Hamas buildings in Gaza City and bombing a PA security services base in Rafah. more
