3 Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza City

Aug. 19, 2014 10:10 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 20, 2014 9:51 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were killed and at least 40 injured in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Gaza medical officials said.

A 3-year-old girl and an unidentified woman were killed in an airstrike which targeted the al-Dalou family home in Gaza City's Sheikh Radwan neighborhood.

Ambulance crews and medics were searching for bodies among the rubble of the three-story home, which was reportedly hit by five missiles.

Twelve Palestinians were killed in 2012 when Israel targeted the same home during a military offensive on Gaza. The victims of that attack spanned four generations, from a 1-year-old to an 83-year-old.

At least 40 other Palestinians were injured in Israeli airstrikes across the besieged enclave.

Warplanes targeted over 30 sites including agricultural lands in Beit Lahiya, al-Zaytoun, al-Maghazi, Deir al-Balah, Al-Qarara, Khuza, eastern Rafah and eastern Shujaiyya.

Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza after three rockets landed near Beersheba earlier in the day.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri denied the movement had fired rockets over the border Tuesday, accusing Israel of trying to sabotage truce talks in Cairo.

"We don't have any information about firing rockets from Gaza. The Israeli raids are intended to sabotage the negotiations in Cairo," he told AFP.

The Palestinians say agreement over a long-term arrangement in Gaza has been delayed by Israeli foot-dragging over key issues.
