IMEMC: Feyya neighborhood, in eastern Gaza City, that cost over 60 people their lives before dawn on Sunday, Israeli forces continued airstrikes throughout the afternoon and evening in every part of the Gaza Strip.
Eight Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike on al-Rimal neighborhood, a prosperous neighborhood in the western part of Gaza City that is home to Gaza’s largest hospital, al-Shifa Hospital, which has been overflowing with dead and wounded since Israel began its assault on Gaza on July 8th.

The family members killed in the airstrike were identified by the Palestinian Ministry of Health as:
1. Samar Osama al-Hallaq, 29,
2. Kinan Akram al-Hallaq, 5,
3. Hani Mohammad al-Hallaq, 29,
4. Suad Mohammad al-Hallaq, 62,
5. Saji al-Hallaq.

In addition to the al-Hallaq family, two other Palestinians were killed in the attack on al-Rimal neighborhood, identified as:
6. Ibrahim Khalil Omar,
7. Ahmad Yassin

In an airstrike on Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip, a fifteen year old girl was killed, and five of her family members were seriously injured. She was identified as:
8. Aya Bahjat Abu Sultan, 15, Beit Lahia

In Khan Younis, an airstrike killed two children and another member of the same family on Friday afternoon. They were:
9. Rayan Taysir Abu Jame’, 8
10. Fatima Mahmoud Abu Jame’, 3
11. Suleiman Abu Jame’

Reports of airstrikes in every part of the Gaza Strip continue to come in, with Israeli ground forces assaulting villages in northern Gaza and neighborhoods in eastern Gaza City, in the central part of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian medical sources report at least 100 people killed on Sunday, most of them in Shuja’eyya neighborhood, and most of them women and children.

The Israeli Prime Minister was not the least bit remorseful for the high number of civilian casualties, according to an official statement, Sunday. Instead, he announced a continuation of the ground assault and told Palestinians that the coming few days will be even worse than the last.
