Six-year-old girl and teenager were injured, hospital for children, center for handicapped, stadium, mosque and several homes were damaged in pre-dawn Israeli airstrikes and artillery attacks on besieged Gaza Strip.

Israeli warplanes fired five missiles at locations east of Al-Tuffah neighborhood of Gaza City, injuring the child and teenager from shrapnel of Israeli missiles.

The two wounded were rushed to Al-Shifa Hospital, the main and largest medical centre in the Gaza Strip, where electricity was blacked out due to the Israeli attacks.

At the same time, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that tens of children, who were in the hospital beds, were traumatised when the shrapnel of Israeli missiles hit windows and damaged walls and cut electricity in Mohammad Durra Pediatrics Hospital.

Fire broke out at the location of the airstrike as the firefighters worked all night to put off the fire in the attack that took place an hour after midnight. Electric power was also cut off to several areas east of Gaza as a result of the strikes.

The strikes of the Israeli warplanes caused severe damage to Al-Mahattah Mosque in the centre of Al-Tuffah neighbourhood.

Warplanes and artillery attacked as well several other locations in the center and south of the Gaza Strip, causing damage but no injuries.

Israel claimed the attacks came after two missiles were fired from Gaza and fell in open areas in southern Israel without causing any damage or injury.
