Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip have reported that several Palestinians, including children, have been killed in Israeli shelling targeting different parts of the coastal region, while dozens have been injured. Around 21 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli missiles and shells, and at least 120 have been injured, in less than 48 hours. The sources said that a man, identified as Zaki Suleiman ar-Ra’ey, 54, died of serious injuries suffered earlier, Wednesday, after the army bombarded homes in Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza City. Another child was also killed in the shelling and at least seven Palestinians were injured, two seriously. The slain child has been identified as Nour Mohammad Abu Haseera, 2. Two Palestinians, identified as Mustafa Sufian Mheisin, 31, and his father Sufian Darwish Mheisin, 52, were killed when the army fired a missile at a Palestinian car in northern Gaza. The remains of two more Palestinians were located under the rubble of the Dalo family home, bombarded by Israel on Tuesday. They have been identified as Mustafa Rabah ad-Dalo, 14, and Wafa’ Hussein ad-Dalo, 48. Several family members were killed and injured in the bombardment. Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza said they retaliated to the ongoing, and renewed, Israeli aggression on Gaza, and fired several shells into different areas in Israel. The Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas said, Wednesday, it fired two missiles into an Israeli gas refinery, in Palestinian waters, across the shore with Gaza. Medical sources in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, said at least six Palestinians were injured in the Shaboura area of the city, while seven more Palestinians were injured in other parts of the city.
