An 11-year old girl was killed, and a number of Palestinians were injured Wednesday night, in raids launched by the Israeli occupation warplanes on the northern and central Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Health Ministry has reported that a child, identified as Dima Sa’ad Asaliyya, 11, was killed after an Israeli missile struck her home on Al Sikka street in Jabalia, in northern Gaza. They added that at least five other Palestinians were injured.
According to a Ma’an News correspondent, during the last hour, Israeli aircraft launched several raids on the town of Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip, and the camps of Nuseirat and Al-Bureij in the middle, which led to the death of the 11-year-old girl, Dima Saad Asalia, from Jabalia, and wounding five others, who were transported to the Indonesian and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospitals.
The bombing of Jabalia comes as just the latest airstrike of hundreds dropped in Gaza since May 10th. As of Wednesday May 19th, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has documented 213 Palestinians killed, including 61 children and 35 women, and the number of those wounded has risen to 958, including 291children and 206 women.
This number did not include the family that was wiped out Wednesday night in an airstrike on their home. The family consisted of a wheelchair-bound Palestinian man, his pregnant wife and their three year old daughter.
