The besieged Gaza Strip is being hit by Israeli airstrikes for the sixth consecutive day, with rising civilian casualties among the Palestinians due to the Israeli attacks.


Nearly two dozen Palestinians were killed in the latest airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Monday, raising the death toll from the Israeli aggression since Wednesday to at least 101.

The Israeli military says it has attacked the Gaza Strip 1,350 times since Wednesday.

The city of Rafah in southern Gaza Strip has been targeted in the recent Israeli airstrikes.

Israeli drones have bombarded the Ministry of Youth and Sports, as well as a stadium in Gaza.

Two people were killed and several others injured in Israeli airstrikes on Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. A Palestinian girl is reported to be in critical condition.

Reports indicate that fresh Israeli airstrikes have targeted eastern and western Gaza.

Two women and a child were killed in the air raids on Gaza City on Monday. Three members of a family were also killed in an Israeli strike on Dair al-Balah.

Meanwhile, three rockets fired by resistance fighters in Gaza hit the Israeli regional council of Eshkol and five others hit Ashkelon.

Also on Monday, Izzeddin Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, attacked Israel’s Re’em military camp with missiles.

An explosion was also heard in the Israeli town of Eilat, situated at the northern tip of the Red Sea. The Israeli military announced that the town had been hit by a Palestinian rocket.

Gazan rockets also hit the cities of Be’er Sheva and Gan Yavne.

Red alert sirens have gone off in the Israeli city of Sha'ar HaNegev and in Be'er Sheva, Bnei Shim'on and the Eshkol regional council, as Palestinian resistance fighter fire retaliatory missiles into Israel.

Israeli TV has announced that Israel's Iron Dome missile shield has intercepted only 310 out of 1,000 Palestinian rockets fired into Israel.
