GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli warplanes struck sites across the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening with medics saying five Palestinians were killed.

Another man, Tamer al-Hamri, died from wounds sustained in Israeli shelling of Deir al-Balah earlier on Saturday, medics said, bringing the death toll to 48 in four days.

Five Palestinians were killed on Saturday night as Israel's bombardment continued. Samahar Qidih, 30, died after Israeli forces shelled her home east of Khan Younis, south Gaza, medics said.

Ali Bin Saed, 25, and Muhammad Aydat were killed in an airstrike on Juhor al-Dik in central Gaza, medical officials told Ma'an.

Three other Palestinians were injured and evacuated to Al-Aqsa Martyrs hospital in Deir al-Balah.

Another two Palestinians were killed in an airstrike on Al-Musaddar in central Gaza, medics said. Their identities were not immediately clear. Medics said two others were injured in the strike.

Israeli jets also hit the home of Hamas military leader Izzidin al-Haddad in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, and seven people were injured.

Israeli military sources said the army had "targeted the vacant residence of Izzadin Hadad, a senior Hamas operative."

Israeli bombed the home of another Qassam leader, Atiyeh Abu Naqira, in the Shaboura district of Rafah shortly after. No injuries were reported.

Six Palestinians -- four children and two women -- were injured in a strike on another home in Rafah, medics said.

Earlier Saturday, Israeli warplanes killed a Palestinian man in Rafah as its military campaign continued for a fourth day. Medics say hundreds of Palestinians have been injured since Wednesday.

Two rockets were fired from Gaza into Tel Aviv on Saturday, without causing damage or injuries, police said. One was intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system.
