GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Palestinians were injured on Wednesday after Israeli forces shelled the area around a 700-year-old mosque in central Gaza, medical sources said.

The mosque, known as al-Shamaa ("The Candle"), is located in the Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City and was reportedly shelled just before noon.

Also known as Bab al-Darum, the mosque is located in a dense area near Gaza's historic Old City that has been bombed numerous times by Israeli forces.
