GAZA, Nov 21 (KUNA) -- Israel has pursued military attacks on Gaza Strip for the eighth consecutive day on Wednesday launching a series of air strikes and hitting various targets including civilians' houses across the enclave.
According to official Palestinian figures, up to 31 Palestinians were killed in the Tuesday offensives and air attacks, bringing the death toll of the wide-scale operation to 140. More than 1,000 others have been wounded in these attacks, in which Tel Aviv has employed fighter jets and reconnaisance aircraft, equipped with high-precision air-to-surface missiles.
At dawn today, the aircraft rocketed a police station in the town of Khan Youness, simultaneously with a chain of raids on various locations in the border town of Rafah and Gaza city. A large number of Palestinians were wounded in these strikes.
The aircraft raided destroyed, or damaged, a house east of Khan Youness, a government complex in the heart of Gaza city, several houses and apartment buildings, a causeway, a shopping mall and two houses in the refugee camp of Al-Nusairat.
The air strikes coincided with a barrage of shells, fired by Israeli gunboats cruising off Gaza shore. And around midnight, medics pulled out dead bodies of two Palestinians who were hit in shelling east of the border town of Rafah.
Earlier, medical sources said a 20-year-old Palestinian, resident of Gaza city, who was wounded in an Israeli air strike during the night, passed away. (pickup previous) mzt.rk KUNA 210936 Nov 12NNNN
