GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel has destroyed or severely damaged over 50 mosques since its assault on Gaza began, a Hamas official said Tuesday.
Undersecretary of the Ministry of Endowments in Gaza, Hassan al-Saifi, said over 50 mosques have been targeted.
Israel does not distinguish between targeting militants, civilians, hospitals, mosques, and cemeteries, al-Saifi told Ma'an, adding that he is afraid that schools may be targeted in the coming days.
"People are buried in mass graves or in used family graves," he said, adding that hospital morgues can no longer accommodate the growing number of casualties.
Cemeteries are nearly impossible to reach due to heightened insecurity, he said.
