The Israeli military says it has attacked the Gaza Strip 1,350 times over the past few days, as the Palestinian death toll continues to rise due to the ongoing airstrikes.


Over 90 Palestinians, including many women and children, have been killed in the Israeli airstrike on Gaza since November 14.

Three Gazans, including 18-month-old Rama al-Shandi, were killed in attacks on Gaza City during the early hours of Monday. The other two victims were identified as 50-year-old Abdulrahman al-Attar and Abd al-abbad. Later in the day two women and another child were also killed in the ongoing airstrikes.

In the central city of Deir al-Balah, Israeli airstrikes killed three members of a Palestinian family.

At least two Palestinian farmers were killed during Israeli bombardment of the southern city of Khan Yunis. Several people were injured, with a girl being in critical condition.

Israeli warplanes also bombarded the Ministry of Youth and Sports and a stadium in Gaza.

The city of Rafah in southern Gaza Strip was also targeted in the latest Israeli airstrikes.

More than 700 Palestinians have been injured in the Israeli airstrikes since Wednesday. Some of the wounded have sustained life-threatening injuries.

Sunday was reportedly the bloodiest day. Thirty-one people were killed during the attacks. Gaza Health Ministry officials said nine members of a family, five of them children, were among the victims.

The Tel Aviv regime has authorized the mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing for a possible ground invasion of Gaza.

Also on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu said the military is prepared to “significantly expand the operation” against Gaza.
