The death toll in Gaza Strip has risen to 81 on Thursday with 550 injured and dozens of houses demolished as Israel continues its offensive for a third day.
Bodies of three unidentified Palestinians arrived at Kamal Adwan hospital after an Israeli strike targeted a civilian vehicle in northern Gaza, Palestinian foreign ministry spokesman said. More than 110 houses were totally destroyed and hundreds were partially damaged due to the intensifying attacks, Palestinian sources said.
An Israeli airstrike has reportedly killed eight members of the same family, including five children, in Khan Younis, south of Gaza. A Palestinian journalist was killed on Wednesday when his TV-marked vehicle was bombed by Israeli jets.
On the other hand, Palestinian fighters, mainly from Qassam brigades, continued to fire rockets toward Israeli cities hitting Haifa and Occupied Jerusalem with R160 and M75 missiles respectively. Palestinian rockets have reached Dimona, the site of Israel's nuclear plant, as well as Ramon Airbase.
