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.

Muhammad Fadel al-Agha, 25, and Abd al-Hamid Atta al-Agha, 24, were killed in the strikes

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.

Ahmad Hassan al-Agha, 55, was also killed in the attack, along with Nariman Khalil al-Agha, 39, and Saddam Majdi al-Agha.

Over 1,210 Palestinians have been killed during the Israeli offensive, with rights groups estimating that around 80 percent of those dead have been civilians.

A statement released by the Ministry of Health Monday said that 52 families had been targeted by Israeli forces and that the attacks had killed 285 members of those families since the beginning of the offensive.
