Just few hours after the end of the 3 days ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, and shortly after Hamas fired homemade rockets towards Tel-Aviv, Israel continued its airstrikes on Gaza leaving at least five Palestinians, including two children, dead.
Since the outbreak of the onslaught on Gaza, nearly 1,900 Palestinians have been killed.
Official Palestinian sources say more than 60 mosques have also been damaged or destroyed in the aggression.
Chris Gunness of the United Nations reliefs and work Agency said that “Gaza’s catastrophic human displacement crisis is morphing into housing crisis of epic proportions with homes 65,000 people destroyed.”
The Gazan Ministry of Agriculture says the Israeli offensive has caused more than USD 250 million of damage to the agricultural sector.
Meanwhile, in the West Bank, Israeli troops on Friday killed at least two Palestinians during a protest against the war on Gaza.
A Palestinian medical source has said that a young protester injured by Israeli forces died in a hospital in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron).
“Nader Edriss, 22, died Saturday morning from his wounds at Hebron’s al-Mizan hospital,” the medical source said.
Scores of Palestinians were also injured in the protest that turned into clashes with Israeli troops.
The second victim was a 19-year-old Palestinian shot dead near an Israeli settlement in the town of al-Bira.
Anti-Israel demonstrations were also held in a number of other West Bank cities including Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarm and Ramallah.
Nearly 400,000 Palestinian children are in immediate need of psychological help due to the “catastrophic and tragic impact” of war, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
