2 Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza City

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were killed and at least 16 injured in an Israeli airstrike on the al-Dalou family home in Gaza City on Tuesday, Gaza medical officials said.

A 3-year-old girl and an unidentified woman were killed in the airstrike which targeted the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in Gaza City.

Ambulance crews and medics were searching for bodies among the rubble of the three-story home, which was reportedly hit by five missiles.

Twelve Palestinians were killed in 2012 when Israel targeted the same home during a military offensive on Gaza. The victims of that attack spanned four generations, from a 1-year-old to an 83-year-old.

At least 18 other Palestinians were injured in Israeli airstrikes across the besieged enclave late Tuesday as warplanes targeted over 30 sites including agricultural lands in Beit Lahiya, al-Zaytoun, al-Maghazi, Deir al-Balah, Al-Qarara, Khuza, eastern Rafah and eastern Shujaiyya.

Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza after three rockets landed near Beersheba earlier in the day. more
