GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said on Friday that at least 35 Palestinians had been killed and more than 200 injured in Israeli shelling and airstrikes on Rafah that took place after intense clashes broke out east of the city.

The ministry stressed that ambulances and medical crews are not able to enter the areas under attack, and that all means of communications had been cut off in the area.

Intense clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants were ongoing for more than an hour in the areas of al-Nasser, the destroyed Gaza International Airport, al-Blbeisi and al-Bayuk southeast of Rafah.

Israeli warplanes reportedly dropped a 1-ton bomb at the site of the clashes, killing dozens and injuring many more.
