GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces killed four Palestinians in Gaza City on Thursday after targeting a cemetery in the Sheikh al-Radwan district, Gaza health official Ashraf al-Qidra said.

The bodies of Muhammad Talal Abu Nahl, Rami Abu Nahl, Haitham Tafesh and Abed Talal Shuweikh were taken to al-Shifa medicial center.

The victims were burying relatives who had been killed overnight by Israeli airstrikes.

The latest airstrikes bring the total death toll since midnight to 25 Palestinians.

Hamdan Hadayid, 42, succumbed to wounds he sustained in an airstrike that targeted a motorcycle in eastern Khan Younis.

Earlier, two Palestinians were killed and three injured in an Israeli airstrike targeting a car in the al-Nasr neighborhood west of Gaza City.

Before that, Israel killed three of Hamas' most prominent military commanders in airstrikes targeting a building in Rafah.

The al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement that Muhammad Abu Shammala, Raed al-Attar and Muhammad Barhoum were killed in the al-Sultan neighborhood of Rafah.

Five other civilians were killed in the attack and at least 40 injured.

In the al-Nuseirat refugee camp, Israel killed two men after targeting a motorcycle. They were identified as Jumaa Matar, 27, and Omar Abu Nada, 22.

In northern Gaza, Israeli shelling killed Surour Tambora and his son Hasan, 13, medical sources said.

An Israeli airstrike also killed five Palestinians, including three children, in Gaza City on Thursday, a medical official said.

Meanwhile, a body was recovered under rubble from the al-Dalou home, which was targeted by Israel on Tuesday.
