Deadly airstrikes rock Gaza

Nov. 19, 2012 8:10 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 19, 2012 11:36 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Multiple airstrikes killed 20 Palestinians, including an elderly woman and 18-month-old, and injured dozens more as Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip entered its sixth day Monday.

On Monday afternoon, Husam Abdul Jawwad was killed and three people were injured in an Israeli airstrike on Gaza City's Saftawi Street.

Another man died from injuries sustained during the bombardment earlier this week. He was identified as Ramadan Mahmoud of al-Maghazi camp.

Just before noon, an elderly woman was killed when an airstrike struck her home in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.

An airstrike on a car in the Tal al-Hawa district of Gaza City killed 23-year-old Muhammad Riyad Shamlakh on Monday morning, medics said.

Mahmoud Said Abu Khatir and Abdullah Harb Abu Khatir were killed by a missile from Israeli jets targeting a motorcycle in Khan Younis in south Gaza. Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that the victims were passersby and the motorcyclist was not hurt.

Israeli aircraft targeted a car in the central Gaza Strip earlier Monday morning, killing three people, eyewitnesses said. Tamer Bashir, Amin al-Bashir and Rashid Abu Amrah were killed when the vehicle they were traveling in was hit in Deir al-Balah.

Meanwhile an airstrike killed Omar and Ibrahim al-Astal in al-Qarara in southern Gaza. A four-year girl was seriously injured in the same raid.

At dawn, Muhammed Iyad Abu Zour, 4, Abu Zour, 19, Ahed Al-Qatati, 38, and Sahar Abu Zour were killed after airstrikes hit a house in the al-Zaitoun neighborhood of Gaza City.

Gaza emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said Abdul-Rahman Muhammad al-Attar killed in airstrike on north Gaza.

Muhammad Salameh Jundi, 31, was killed in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood, Imad Abu Hamda, 30, was killed in al-Shati refugee camp, and Jalal Nasr, 35, died from wounds sustained in a strike on Jabaliya, north of Gaza.

An 18-month-old baby, Rama al-Shandi, was also reported killed in the strikes.

Thirty other people were wounded in the attacks and reporters in Gaza City said a massive blast at 2 a.m. damaged a police station.

In Rafah, five people were killed in three airstrikes targeting the city late Sunday. One person was reported injured.

Israel's army said it targeted 80 sites across the Gaza Strip overnight Sunday, including "under-ground rocket launching sites, terror tunnels and training bases, inflicting severe damage to the rocket launching capabilities of terror organizations operating out of the Gaza Strip."

Over 1,350 sites in the Gaza Strip have been targeted since Israel launched Operation Pillar of Cloud on Wednesday, an army statement said.
