SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association) – Israel has conducted fresh airstrikes in the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime’s aggression against residents in the blockaded Palestinians coastal enclave continues unabated, Press TV reports.

Early on Sunday, an Israeli aerial attack struck a four-story shopping center in the city of Rafah, situated 30 kilometers (around 19 miles) south of Gaza City.

According to Palestinian sources, the assault left scores of people injured and completely destroyed the building.

Hours earlier, Israeli fighter jets bombed a 12-story residential building in the center of the beleaguered Gaza Strip, leaving several wounded.

Two missiles also hit the Zafer Tower, located in Tel al-Hawa neighborhood of Gaza City.

The strikes, which shook the neighboring high-rises in the area, brought down the entire tower with 44 apartments, leaving two people dead and 16 others injured.

The Israeli military said it targeted a room belonging to Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in the building.

On Saturday, five Palestinian children also lost their lives in bombings across Gaza.

Israel has been carrying out military strikes against Gaza since early July, inflicting heavy losses on the Palestinian land.

Some 2,100 people, mostly civilians, have lost their lives and over 10,200 have been injured in the Israeli war.

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Israel.
