GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Over a dozen members of a single family were killed in Israel strikes on Tuesday, as three homes belonging to the extended family in southern Gaza were leveled.

Thirteen family members of the al-Agha family were killed early in the day in Israeli airstrikes targeting three houses in Khan Younis belonging to the al-Agha family.

Additionally, 45-year-old Nader Atta al-Agha was killed along with his children -- Ahmad, 21, Iyad, 16, Fadel, 11, Daliah, 18, and Dina, 14.

The shelling also killed Marwa Jamil Shaker al-Agha and her son Nidal Majdi al-Agha, 17.
