IMEMC News: Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip have reported that four more Palestinians were killed on Thursday, in the latest of an ongoing series of Israeli strikes and bombardment targeting different parts of the coastal region.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza has reported that an elderly man was killed, and one was severely wounded, when an Israeli drone fired a missile at worshipers leaving a mosque, following dawn prayers, in the neighborhood of Jneina, in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip.

The Ministry said the slain Palestinian have been identified as;

1. Mohammad Abdul-Rahman Hassouna, 67, Rafah.

An elderly Palestinian woman was also killed, on Thursday at dawn, after the Israeli Air Force fired missiles into a number of homes in Khan Younis, also in the southern part of the Gaza Strip; several Palestinians were injured.

The slain woman has been identified as:

2. Zeinab Mohammad Sa’id al-‘Abadla, 71, Khan Younis.

In addition, one Palestinian was killed, and several others were wounded, some seriously, when the army fired missiles into a number of homes in Beit Lahia in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
The slain Palestinian has been identified as:

Three Palestinians were injured when the army bombarded a home, belonging to the Kahil family, west of Gaza City.

Three air strikes also targeted farmlands in Khan Younis, and the army fired a missile, for the third time, into the home of Hamas political leader, former Minister of Interior, Fathi Hammad, in Beit Lahia.
