Israel blew up the residence of Hamas leader Gaza Yahya Sinwari on Sunday night, and the organization responded with a rocket attack in Tel Aviv.
Health officials there said that at least three Palestinians were killed and many residents were injured in Israeli air strikes in the enclave. Reuters reported that the bombing echoed in Gaza during the night.
Due to the rocket attack in Gaza, some Israelis in Tel Aviv and its suburbs stayed overnight in the shelter. About 10 people were injured when escaping the shelter.
Since the conflict broke out on Monday, at least 148 people have been killed in Gaza, including 41 children. Israel reported 10 deaths, of which 2 were children.
Health officials in the Gaza Strip said that the Israeli army killed 33 Palestinians, including 13 children, in Gaza in the early hours of Sunday morning. On the seventh day of the battle, Israel fired rockets from Gaza to Israel.
Since the conflict in Gaza broke out on Monday, 181 people have been killed, including 52 children.
Israel announced that it had killed 10 citizens, including 2 children.
The UN Security Council will meet later on Sunday to discuss the most intense Palestinian-Israeli conflict in recent years.
United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres reminded both parties that “any indiscriminate behavior against civilians and media structures violates international law and must be avoided at all costs,” the United Nations spokesperson said in a statement.
Israel and Hamas-an Islamic organization that is in power in the enclave-point out that the fighting is still going on.
The Israeli Air Force demolished a skyscraper in Gaza on Saturday, which houses the news agency, AFP and Al Jazeera.
The military claimed that this was a legitimate military target, including the Hamas military office, and issued a warning to civilians in advance, asking them to withdraw from the building.
The Associated Press condemned the attack and asked Israel to show evidence of the existence of Hamas.
The Associated Press said in a statement: “We have no indication that Hamas is in or in the building.”
On the other hand, Hamas responded by launching 120 rockets every night, the Israeli army announced.
