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.

''Meanwhile, a body was recovered under rubble from the al-Dalou home, which was targeted by Israel on Tuesday''. Yea, but we want to know, whose body it is name, gender, age etc. The information Hamas is always so forthcoming with normally.

This is probably the same cemetery where PIJ was launching rockets at the same time.

Just keep piling up that list for the war crimes investigation IDF! Killing civilians while burying their civilian dead. I keep thinking they won't go any lower, but they continue to reach new depths of cruelty and depravity. What would the response be if that were to happen to israelis? Nuclear? Way beyond ashamed here.

does it matter who it was. Israeli Prime Minister has to kill Hamas because they want peace. He doesn't he wants complete control and control of gas fields. The man is an idiot if he thinks people are stupid enough not to se through him

Funerals, hospitals, children, women - it obvious the Israeli's pride themselves with acts of rotten cowardice. Zionism IS terrorism.

The Ministry of Health is the agency that releases the identity of the dead, not Hamas -and unlike some, they prefer to confirm the actual details, rather than spread rumours.

Dear Raymondo. When you see some of the bodys here in Gaza, as I have, you can?t even tell what gender it is. It happends that it can take some time to figure out who it is.

@1 You mean was it Mohammed Al Deif. According to reports it wasn't, it was his daughter, another dead child to add to the list of over 500 children killed by Israel using US weapons. I guess all those children must have been a security risk to Israel or maybe they are just collateral damage.

Zionist Israel is a wild pig,we all know that. Israel never has/had intentions to HALT ILLEGAL air/land/sea-strikes on refugee camp Gaza occupied by Israeli CONSTANT military attack/intimidation. Israel has to"pause"to let USG,EU,UKG off the legal hook,as if to give civil "negotiating".But Israel ONLY means to kill,kill,kill & USG to ignore,ignore,ignore as Israel BLOWS men,women,children intoTINY PIECES of burnt flesh for NOT being Jewish!
This is D.C.again!Israel does ONLY what D.C. ALLOWS!

Again, Israel doesn't care WHO/WHAT its hits in Gaza,be it an actual target or anyone/thing else within the immediate facinity inside Gaza.In Zionist psycho,narcissistic mindset,any "fish" within the "barrel"of enclaved Gaza is a target; be they in utero,toddling,walking,crawling,or already in the GRAVE!
Just for being Palestinian Muslim or Christian,is the TARGET!And that's why the majority of the world HATES Zionist-led Israel. Deja Vu WW2. Zionism just switched a Swastika,for a blue star!

I wanted to say that the majority of people in the world supports Gaza in their fight against the uncivilized,savage,barbaric Israeli gov.Shame on the govs. of Canada,USA and the EU for supporting the aggressor,israel. There can be no peace until the demands of the people of Gaza are met.The western govs.are complicit in the death and destruction in Gaza and are also responsible for there been no peace agreement because of its support for Israel.

This was the cemetery where PIJ and/or Hamas were launching rockets from. Documented by themselves on their twitter feeds too. Of course it was targeted because they were firing rockets. Of course they were firing rockets because they wanted the civilians as cover. That's how they work.

Israel is making a hell of a good reputation for them. Attacking a funeral. Reminds me of a movie from the "GodFather" where a mother war burying her son, and they were fired upon by some of the Mafia in the area. They fire at them so their relative can't come back later on at them for revenge. That's Israel for you. The Jewish Mafia, or prefebrally the "Mafia ten Commandemnts".

Hi Brian. Israel has stated repeatedly that it seeks to minimize civilian casualties. Just wondering, what do you think of the use of artillery fire against targets in a heavily populated area? Do you think it's use is appropriate?

#18:Brain: Why don't you put your Lego away & go volunteer to tend the graves of FIVE HUNDRED DEAD GAZAN CHILDREN,since July,all killed by F16/Drone guided"precision"missiles or brand-spanking-new Israeli"Morty's? Or you could go try &match up the body parts of 2,000 dead civilians in Gaza? Do something useful.You'll grow as a man,at least,if not a human.Do to others(Brian)as you'd have them do to you.

Their crime was being gentile. Old, sick, disabled, young they are dead because of the accident of being born.

must be careful to report correctly, or else Hamas might suspect them of being collaborators.
