The number of Palestinian citizens killed in Israeli strikes targeted besieged Gaza Strip on Monday evening climbed to 20, including nine children, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said.
According to the Ministry, the number of wounded rose to 60, including dozen suffering critical wounds.
Israeli airstrikes in Gaza continue after Israeli cabinet had decided to carry out a wide-scale aerial operation to deter the Palestinian resistance in Gaza.
The White House and UK’s Downing Street called for the firing of rockets from Gaza to be halted, but said nothing about the Israeli jets which have been showering Gaza with rockets.
