53 Palestinians killed, over 450 injured in Gaza assault

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on northern and southern Gaza Wednesday evening, bringing the total death toll in Gaza to 53, medical officials said.

An Israeli airstrike struck the Hamad family home in Beit Hanoun, killing Hani Saleh Hamad, 57, and Ibrahim Hamad, 20.

Five members of the same family were killed late Tuesday as Israeli warplanes bombed the home of senior Islamic Jihad militant Hafiz Hamad in the same area.

Another airstrike in Rafah killed Samia al-Arja, 65, and a unidentified child later died from injuries sustained in the strike.

The latest airstrikes bring the total death toll in Gaza to 53, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health. Over 450 Palestinians have been injured in the attacks.

Six women and nine children were among 22 Palestinians killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza on Wednesday, medics said.

Earlier, an Israeli airstrike on the al-Maghazi refugee camp killed a family of three, with another two children still reported missing under the rubble.

Amjad Hamdan, 23, was also killed in an airstrike outside of his home in Beit Hanoun. He is allegedly a member of Islamic Jihad's military wing.

Earlier, twelve Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on Beit Hanoun, Gaza City, al-Nuseirat refugee camp, al-Mughraqa village, and Beit Lahiya.

Two long-range rockets fired crashed into the sea off the northern port city of Haifa Wednesday, Israeli media reported, in an attack claimed by Hamas fighters.

Haifa lies 165 kilometers north of Gaza and, if confirmed, it would be the furthest a rocket fired from there has ever traveled.

Public radio said one struck near the seaside resort of Caesarea and another in the Carmel Beach region, both south of Haifa.

President Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza.
