GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes killed five Palestinians in Gaza refugee camps on Monday evening, including a man with physical disabilities, in the sixth day of Israel's war on Gaza.

Medics said the remains of Husam Shahadeh and his nephew Khalil Shahadeh were brought to Gaza hospital after Israeli shelling on al-Nuseirat camp.

Muhammad Zeidan, who is physically disabled, was killed in an airstrike on an agricultural area near al-Nuseirat.

A military strike on neighboring al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza killed Arkan Abu Kmayel and Ibrahim Al-Hawajri, medics said.

The Popular Resistance Committees' al-Nasser al-Salah al-Din brigades said they were both members of the group.

Eight civilians were injured, two seriously, in the bombing of a family home in Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.

Strikes ongoing

Israel continued its bombardment of the Gaza Strip for the sixth day on Monday, killing 27 people in one day, including two children and four women.

Israeli planes bombed a tower block that houses several international media offices in Gaza City for the second day, killing a military leader of Islamic Jihad and a civilian.

Israel also struck al-Nuseirat camp in central Gaza earlier Sunday afternoon, killing Ayed Radi and Amir Al-Malahi, medics said.

A young girl was injured in another strike on the al-Zaitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, and a man was injured in Sheikh Radwan district.

Israel also shelled Khan Younis in south Gaza, injuring two people.

Another man died from wounds sustained in an earlier strike during Israel's bombardment of Gaza.

Israeli forces have killed over 100 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since Israel launched Operation Pillar of Cloud on Wednesday, and injured hundreds more. Three Israelis have been killed in a rocket attack.
