Press TV: Over 20 killed in day of attacks on Gaza

Death toll from a day of bombing in Gaza has reached 21 as the Israeli regime continues aggression against the coastal sliver.

Children were among those killed and over 100 injured during Tel Aviv’s attacks on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

The deadliest strike of the day took place when a missile hit a house in the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis, leaving eight dead, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

The Israeli army said it carried out some 50 airstrikes on the coastal strip on Tuesday. Several residential buildings were targeted in the raids. Mohammad Shabaan, a military commander of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, is also among the fatalities.

In a statement released earlier in the day, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, called Israel’s attacks on the besieged enclave a “massacre”.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.
