GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike killed three Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday evening, the health ministry said, bringing the death toll to 19 on the second day of fighting.

Brothers Tareq Jamal Naser, 16, and Oday Jamal Nasser, 14, as well as Fares al-Bassiouni were killed when Israel bombed their home in Beit Hanoun, the ministry said.

The brothers' father and three children were among six injured in the explosion. Witnesses said a fire broke out affecting a nearby mosque after the bombing.

Israel's army said it had hit around 70 rocket-launching sites in the course of an hour on Thursday evening, as deadly violence continued since Israel assassinated a Hamas commander on Wednesday.

The aerial bombardment set off earth-shaking thuds and fireballs in the dark sky and were met with screeches of Palestinian rocket fire launched from the outskirts of Gaza City towards southern Israel.

One of the sites targeted by Israel was an electricity generator that supplied the house of Hamas's prime minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh. It was unclear whether he was at home at the time.

Witnesses told Ma'an violent explosions across Gaza City's Sheikh Radwan neighborhood set a high-rise building ablaze, with flames lighting Gaza's sky. Several injured, including women, were brought to Gaza's Al-Shifa hospital, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Airstrikes also hit an open area east of Gaza City, and four areas near Rafah in south Gaza.

Witnesses said Israeli planes hit the marine police headquarters in Deir al-Balah, which has been destroyed repeatedly in Israeli airstrikes. Sites in Khan Younis were also hit.

How is it possible that "only" 9 Pals have been killed. I always hear how crowded the Gaza is. Is it that the ISRAELI military is being very specific with their bombing campaign? Don't you think they could just drop their bombs indiscriminatly and kill 100's? meanwhile the rockets fired into ISRAEL go anywhere to hopefully kill anybody!

Were the teen boys sending rockets? Were their houses being used by Hamas as weapon launching sites? Hamas loves using human shields, they are killing their own people!

"Israel's army said it had hit around 70 rocket-launching sites" How could the home of these dead children possibly be a "rocket launching site"? Israel is a vicious, depraved and lying entity. (May their souls rest in perfect peace.)

why other Islamic states like Egypt stop at any cooperation with Israel will not cease until the attacks on Palestinians. For instance Azerbaijan contractors Israel 70% of imported petroleum products Israel. We call it Islamic solidarity. PS: Sorry for english -translator

To IAN #3 Can you answer my question. How is it possible that only 19 PALS have been killed?

The attacks are more specific now that's for sure. The problem is in the continuous attacks with tiny excuses "for every Israeli soldier a100 Palestinian civilians die!!

Hamas must stop their terrorism, and especially stop with locating their rocket launchers in the midst of civilian areas.

#6 "To IAN #3 Can you answer my question. How is it possible that only 19 PALS have been killed?" Jesus ABE. What IS your point? That Israel is showing restraint and decency by not dropping an atom bomb and killing everyone? Or should be commended for not going in HARD with cluster bombs and white phosphorus like Cast Lead? Or having killed nineteen people, including teenagers and babies, should be applauded for its "specific", precision work? Jesus. "...only 19 PALS", as you offensively

(contd.) put it, are nineteen PEOPLE who would still be alive if not for Bibi's cynical, orchestrated "November surprise". Jesus.

To #9-10 Yes that is EXACTLY my point. Thank you for getting it! Because I believe IF (God forbid) Hamas had the fire power ISRAEL does they would drop bombs on anything and ANYONE! Yes ISRAEL could carpet bomb Gaza for 24 straight hours and you would be whining about 19,0000 dead. You understand that right?

#11 ABE, you suffer from the same affliction as our brother Brian Cohen. You CANNOT acknowledge that Hamas/Palestinians have valid grievances. Subsequently you dehumanise them as irrational monsters who would attack viciously and indiscriminately "IF (God forbid)...[they] had the fire power ISRAEL does" (which no doubt they would...because of their valid grievances and Israeli contempt for them). (If they had Israeli fire power from the start, there would be no occupation, no blockade and

(contd.) quite possibly no Israel.) So it's time to DE-escalate, OBSERVE a truce and TALK about the grievances (things Israel refuses to do) not pulverise a captive population with superior fire power whilst congratulating yourself on your precision and "restraint". And if you can't see the sociopathy inherent in "Yes ISRAEL could carpet bomb Gaza for 24 straight hours and you would be whining about 19,0000 dead"...well, frankly ABE, I fear for your immortal soul.
