GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike killed five Palestinians, including three children, in Gaza City on Thursday, a medical official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, Gaza's ministry of health spokesman, identified one of the victims as Nasr Ziad al-Rifi, 35. Four others were seriously wounded.

The latest fatalities bring the death toll in Gaza to 18 since midnight.

Earlier, Israel killed three senior Hamas military commanders and nine civilians in airstrikes across Gaza.

Over 2,065 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched a military offensive in July.
