A number of Palestinians were killed on Sunday as Israeli aircraft bombed homes in various areas of the Gaza Strip, local media reported.

“Israeli warplanes bombed a residence belonging to the Kali family in the Sabra neighborhood of Gaza City, resulting in the tragic killing of three Palestinians there,” the Palestinian official news agency Wafa reported.

Another raid targeted a home in the Al-Shaaf area, east of the Gaza City, killing one and wounding others, medical sources told Anadolu.

Artillery and aerial bombardment continued in the Zaytoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza City, in conjunction with fierce clashes with fighters of the Palestinian resistance factions, according to witnesses.

As for the northern Gaza Strip, a number of people were killed when Israeli aircraft bombed a home belonging to the Qashqash family in the Al-Shaimaa area in the town of Beit Lahia, according to local sources.

At sea, army military boats continue to bomb the coastal strip of Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip from time to time, according to eyewitnesses.

Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7 cross-border attack by the Palestinian group Hamas. The ensuing Israeli war has killed more than 29,600 people and caused mass destruction and shortages of necessities. Nearly 70,000 people have been injured.

Around 1,200 Israelis are believed to have been killed in the Hamas attack.

The Israeli war on Gaza has pushed 85% of the territory's population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.

Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice. An interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to stop genocidal acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.

Hostilities have continued unabated, however, and aid deliveries remain woefully insufficient to address the humanitarian catastrophe.
