GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes on Thursday killed two Hamas militants in the northern Gaza Strip, bringing the Palestinian death toll to 13 in less than 24 hours.

Al-Qassam Brigades members Rami Hamad and Khaled Abu Nasr were killed in an airstrike east of Jabaliya refugee camp. Their bodies were taken to the Kamal Adwan hospital, medics told Ma'an.

Earlier Thursday, Israel killed a senior police official and two al-Qassam Brigade members. Dozens of Palestinians have been wounded, including a girl whose leg was amputated.

A pregnant woman, a 7-year-old boy and an 11-month-old baby are among at least 13 Palestinians killed since Wednesday evening, when Israel launched a military campaign on the Gaza Strip after assassinating al-Qassam brigades leader Ahmad al-Jaabari.

Armed groups have fired a barrage of mortars at Israeli military sites and across the border. A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday struck an apartment building in southern Israel, killing three Israelis.

Meanwhile a separate airstrike targeted the Shujaiyya area of Gaza City shortly after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip killed three Israelis near the Gaza border.

The airstrike injured six Palestinians including three children and a pregnant woman, medics said. They were transferred to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, they said.

Separately, an airstrike in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip injured four Palestinians including a woman. They were transferred to Kamal Adwan hospital for treatment.

Whilst Palestinian terrorists deliberately targeted an Israeli apartment blog, killing three adults and critically wounding a baby, the IDF continues to target only terrorists. You should talk to your terrorist leaders about their war crimes. They will be made to pay for sure, but you may have to share the cost.

Did Hamas have the best interests of the Palestinian people in mind,
when it used as human shields "a pregnant woman, a 7-year-old boy,
and an 11-month-old baby" ???

It is time for a Peace Treaty, and neither Israel, nor the World,
should accept anything less, as conditions to end the fighting.

Gaza is one of the most-densely populated areas of the world. Very much like the ghetto in Warsaw. You think Israel doesn't know this?

#1 Nice try but we both know when this is over Palestinian civilian deaths will FAR outnumber Israeli civilian deaths. So, are the IDF just bad shots and keep missing the terrorists they're aiming at (and hitting civilians) or do they blast away indiscriminately killing whoever's there then rely on anonymous apologists like you (and #2) to spread the myth about "the most moral army in the world" and its ethical approach to killing? Hmmm?
