GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A massive Israeli air assault targeted Gaza City on Saturday, damaging the headquarters of the government and a police station.

Israeli warplanes also bombed the home of a member of Hamas' armed wing in Rafah and a mosque in Bureij refugee camp, injuring five civilians.

Israeli warplanes launched multiple raids on the tunnel area between Gaza and Egypt south of Rafah. There were no reports of injury in those attacks.

Warplanes also bombed farmland in Beit Lahiya and Jabaliya as well as in Khan Younis.

On Friday an attack on Rafah killed one Palestinian and seriously injured two others, bringing the death toll to 29 in the Gaza Strip.

The strike hit three men riding a motorcycle, killing Khalid Khalil al-Shayer, 28, and seriously injuring two others.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said al-Shayer was a militant involved in anti-tank operations.

Earlier Israel bombed the al-Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip killing Hamas military leader Ahmad Abu Jalal, 43, his brother Majd Abu Jalal, 33, Ziad Farhan Abu Jalal, 23, and Hasan Salim al-Hulei, 27.

Those attacks followed airstrikes across the Gaza Strip that killed three Palestinians on Thursday.

Witnesses reported continuous raids throughout the Gaza Strip.

Medical officials say 29 Palestinians have been killed since Wednesday.
