GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were killed and 20 injured early Tuesday as Israel continued air raids on the Gaza Strip, medics said.

Muhammad Muin Abu Ajwa and Hasan Omar al-Sawwaf were killed in airstrikes targeting central Gaza City.

At least 20 others were injured in an airstrike on a mall in western Gaza. Five of the injured were medics, witnesses said.

Israel's air-force also destroyed a housing tower at dawn consisting of some 100 apartments and dozens of commercial stores.

The homes of Hussam Shaldan in al-Zaytoun and the al-Eimawi family house in al-Sabra were completely destroyed after being targeted by drones.
