GAZA (Ma'an) -- Nine family members were killed and four others were injured in an Israeli airstrike on the al-Qassas family home on al-Jalaa street in Gaza City, medics said.

Aya Yasir al-Qassas, Aisha Yasir al-Qassas, Nisma Iyad al-Qassas, and Lamya Iyad al-Qassas were four of the nine killed whose bodies have been identified so far.

Medics also retrieved the body of Arafa Sultan Arafat, who was killed in an airstrike on Beit Lahiya.

The Israeli air force targeted two houses in central Gaza while Israeli artillery shelled an UNRWA school and a mosque in al-Maghazi.
