GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes killed five Palestinians in Gaza overnight Monday, with at least 192 killed and 1,400 injured as Israel's assault enters its eighth day.

An airstrike in Khan Younis early Tuesday killed 33-year-old Suleiman Abu Luli, 58-year-old Ata al-Umour and 53-year-old Bushra Khalil Zurub, Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.

Earlier, 46-year-old Ismail Salim al-Najjar and 49-year-old Muhammad Ahmad Ibrahim al-Najjar were killed in an airstrike near Israeli settlements evacuated in 2005.

An airstrike destroyed the home of Ismail Haniyeh's adviser, Basim Naim, and at 7:30 a.m. a house in al-Shati refugee camp and Beit Lahiya were completely destroyed by aerial attacks.

At least another four Palestinians were injured in an airstrike in the northern Gaza Strip.
