The death toll from Israeli attacks on the blockaded Gaza Strip rose to 181, including 31 women and 52 children on Sunday.
Israel’s bombardment of the Gaza Strip entered its seventh consecutive day with air raids early on Sunday killing at least 33 Palestinians, wounding dozens more, and flattening at least two residential buildings.
More than 180, including at least 52 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip in the past week. More than 1,000 others have been wounded. In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces have killed at least 13 Palestinians.
Continuing with its airstrikes, Israel on Sunday bombarded a health facility in Gaza with two missiles, an official statement said.
According to the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, the missiles hit the Al-Daraj Martyrs Health Center, majorly damaging the structure and rendering it inoperable.
The statement called on the international community to intervene for the protection of health institutions and medical personnel, and for accountability of Israel s actions.
Israeli forces have also targeted buildings in Gaza which had offices of government ministries and media offices of news outlets such as Al Jazeera and Associated Press in the past two days. Israel has reported 10 dead, including two children.
The United Nations Security Council meets on Sunday to discuss the worst outbreak of violence in years in Palestine and Israel.
