Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that one resident was killed, and ten others were wounded, when the Israeli army bombarded, on Saturday evening, an area West of Gaza City.
The latest attack brings the death toll to 16, including 4 children, in one week; at least 73 Palestinians, including children and women, were wounded in more than 40 strikes carried out by the Israeli military.
Dr. Ashraf Al-Qudra, spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, reported that resident Osama Mahmoud Al-Adda, was killed on Saturday evening, and ten residents were injured when the army fired a missile at Al-Adda driving his motorcycle in Al-Quds Open University Street, west of Gaza City.
Al-Adda is a member of the Salah Ed-Deen Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza.
The missile fired by the army also led to dozens of injuries among the civilian population as it hit a wall of a residential tower.
Adham Abu Salmiyya, spokesperson of the Medical and Emergency Services in Gaza, accused Israel of committing war crimes against the civilian population in Gaza, and demanded the International Community to intervene and stop the Israeli military escalation against the Gaza Strip.
