GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was killed and at least three others were injured in Israeli airstrikes targeting the besieged Gaza Strip, on Tuesday afternoon, despite reports of ceasefire agreement.

Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes targeting a group of Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip, killing one Palestinian.

Medical sources identified the killed Palestinian as Khalid Akram Youssef Maarouf, 29.

Sources added that Maarouf's death raises the death toll of Palestinians killed in the Gaza Strip, since Monday evening, to seven. More than 30 Palestinians were injured during the airstrikes.

Three Palestinians were also injured during Israeli airstrikes targeting Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, on Tuesday afternoon.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that talks of ceasefire were made.

Israeli warplanes had targeted and demolished three residential buildings, which were home to three Palestinian families, and another five commercial buildings, including a hotel, in Gaza City.
Another Israeli warplane had also fired a warning missile at a college building in the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood, west of Gaza City, causing material damages to the area.

Reports confirmed that Israeli warplanes also targeted agricultural lands in Gaza City, and in the central, northern and southern parts of the Strip.
Moreover, Israel had shelled the headquarters of the Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa TV in Gaza City, and completely destroyed it, overnight Monday.
