GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Airstrikes killed five Palestinians in Gaza early Friday as Israel's military assault on the besieged enclave continued.

Yassin Hamed Abu Hamda and Mahmoud Qashlan were killed by strikes in al-Nuseirat refugee camp while Mahmoud Talaat Shreiteh, 14, and Bashir Ahmad Shreiteh, 35, were killed in central Gaza.

Moussa Ahmad al-Abadla, 23, was killed and two others injured when Israel targeted the al-Qarara neighborhood in Khan Younis.

Israel's air-force targeted an apartment in the al-Sheikh Zayed towers in Jabalia, storehouses in Rafah, a concrete producing workshop in central Gaza and a poultry farm.

The al-Astal and Shbir family homes were hit by missiles, with no injuries reported.

At least 38 Palestinians were killed on Thursday, including three senior Hamas military commanders who were targeted in Rafah.

Over 2,087 Palestinians have been killed and 10,500 injured in Israel's military offensive.
