Nearly two dozen Palestinians were killed in the latest airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Monday, raising the death toll from the Israeli aggression since Wednesday to at least 101.
The Israeli military says it has attacked the Gaza Strip 1,350 times since Wednesday.
The city of Rafah in southern Gaza Strip has been targeted in the recent Israeli airstrikes.
Israeli drones have bombarded the Ministry of Youth and Sports, as well as a stadium in Gaza.
Two people were killed and several others injured in Israeli airstrikes on Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. A Palestinian girl is reported to be in critical condition.
Reports indicate that fresh Israeli airstrikes have targeted eastern and western Gaza.
The true situation is, of course, quite the opposite: Namely, that the defenseless population of Gaza can be assumed now to be acutely fearful of an all out imminent Israeli assault, while it is also true, without minimising the reality of a threat, that some rockets fired from Gaza fell harmlessly (although with admittedly menacing implications) on the outskirts of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. There is such a gross disproportion in the capacity of the two sides to inflict damage and suffering due to Israeli total military dominance as to make perverse this reversal of concerns to what might befall Israeli society if the attack on Gaza further intensifies.
