The ongoing conflict between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants entered its seventh consecutive day on Sunday.
Early Sunday by the Israeli airstrike killed at least 23 Palestinians, wounding dozens more, and flattening at least two residential buildings, including the home of Gaza’s Hamas chief, Yehya al-Sinwar.
The Israeli army spokesman also said the home of Sinwar’s brother, who is in charge of Hamas’ “logistics and personnel,” was also destroyed.
On Saturday, an Israeli airstrike destroyed Al-Jala Tower, a multi-storey building in the Gaza strip that housed the offices of media organizations like Associated Press, Al-Jazeera, and a number of apartments.
At least 170 people, including 41 children, have been killed and 1,000 more injured in the Israeli attacks on Gaza. Israel has reported 10 dead, including two children.
The last clash, in 2014, claimed the lives of 70 Israelis and 2,100 Palestinians.
The United Nations Security Council meets on Sunday to discuss the worst outbreak of violence in years in Palestine and Israel.
