At least 24 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli air raids on the besieged Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian health ministry, after Hamas launched rockets from the coastal territory towards Israel.
Israeli forces continued to bombard the territory well into Tuesday morning, targeting sites in Khan Younis, al-Bureij refugee camp, and al-Zaitoun neighbourhood.
At least three civilians were killed at dawn, after an Israeli warplane targeted a house in al-Shati’ refugee camp.
A spokesman for the civil defense in Gaza, Raed al-Dahshan, told Al Jazeera that among the three was a woman and a disabled man.
The Gaza health ministry said the death toll from the Israeli attacks has risen to 24 people, including nine children. At least 106 others were wounded.
