Gaza City, 16 May

The Israeli airstrike on Gaza city today destroyed three buildings and killed at least 33 people. According to the Gaza Health Department, 12 women and eight children were killed and 50 others were injured. Earlier, the Israeli military said that the house of a top Hamas leader, Yahya Sinwar, was destroyed in Gaza. The bombing was carried out shortly after noon in the Khan Younis area south of Gaza. The targets of Hamas leaders are being targeted. The Israeli army has intensified the attack and is trying to do as much damage to Hamas as possible. While the international community is trying to restore peace through mediation. But targeting Hamas leaders could hamper peace efforts. The impact of the confrontation between Israel and Hamas is now being felt in other parts of the world as well. Tensions between Jews and Arabs have also increased within the West Bank and Israel. So far 181 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza. More than 1,225 people were injured. At least eight people have died in Israel. Speaking to Ramallah (West Bank), Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki attacked Israel, saying “crimes and atrocities are being committed against people in Gaza.” More than 10,000 people have been forced to flee their homes. -App
