7 Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza

Aug. 26, 2014 2:03 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 26, 2014 6:49 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike on Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip killed 22-year-old Muhammad Zaanin and injured several others, bringing Tuesday's death toll to seven.

A Ma'an reporter quoted witnesses as saying that an Israeli reconnaissance drone fired a missile at a group of people in Beit Hanoun killing Zaanin instantly.

Six Palestinians were killed earlier in Israeli airstrikes, witnesses said.

In the latest airstrikes, two employees from a local electricity company were killed when Israel targeted their car.

The victims were identified as Tamer Hamad and Muhammad Thaher.

Another two unidentified Palestinians were killed when an airstrike targeted a group of people in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza City.

A fire broke out in the area following the attack.

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

Israel also targeted a 16-storey mixed-use complex known as "Little Italy", causing its complete collapse, witnesses said.

Warplanes also fired on the 14-storey al-Basha building in the western Rimal neighborhood, causing massive damage and wounding another 15 people, witnesses and medics said.

Part of the building was used by Sawt Al-Shaab radio, or "Voice of the People", run by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
