GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were killed and at least 40 injured in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Gaza medical officials said.

A 3-year-old girl and an unidentified woman were killed in an airstrike which targeted the al-Dalou family home in Gaza City's Sheikh Radwan neighborhood.

Ambulance crews and medics were searching for bodies among the rubble of the three-story home, which was reportedly hit by five missiles.

Twelve Palestinians were killed in 2012 when Israel targeted the same home during a military offensive on Gaza. The victims of that attack spanned four generations, from a 1-year-old to an 83-year-old.

At least 40 other Palestinians were injured in Israeli airstrikes across the besieged enclave.

Warplanes targeted over 30 sites including agricultural lands in Beit Lahiya, al-Zaytoun, al-Maghazi, Deir al-Balah, Al-Qarara, Khuza, eastern Rafah and eastern Shujaiyya.

Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza after three rockets landed near Beersheba earlier in the day.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri denied the movement had fired rockets over the border Tuesday, accusing Israel of trying to sabotage truce talks in Cairo.

"We don't have any information about firing rockets from Gaza. The Israeli raids are intended to sabotage the negotiations in Cairo," he told AFP.

The Palestinians say agreement over a long-term arrangement in Gaza has been delayed by Israeli foot-dragging over key issues.

Was it just a coincidence that the Al Delou house was hit yet again? Wasn't this the same family that lost quite a few of its members in 2012 when the IDF struck the house in Operation Pillar of Cloud (Defence). Were rockets really fired from Gaza earlier, or was this just a pretext in order to exit the talks & start bombing Gaza again. Adding two & two....

Why in the world would Hamas or any of their factions fire any rockets at Israel just few hours before the ceasefire end. They had five days to do it if they have anything to do with it, so why wait at the last few hours. So I can't believe Hamas or any other group have anything to do with firing rockets. Why anyone would violate a ceasefire?. I might have the answer. In the US we have sutuation that required the Dtate to have a curfew at night. People broke the curfew, and the reason was,

Cont...no one going to tell them when and where to demonstrate. Back to the ceasefire in Gaza, who would generaly violate a ceasefire. Normaly is the people that would argue with you that they are not to be given any condition to accept a ceasefire and they can break it whenever they feel like. In this case Israel is the one that usualy break it, they the one that wanted a ceasefire unconditionaly without any deal. Here is my answer.

Maan, tell the truth! The target was the arch terrorist, Def. He is responsible for the deaths of many Palestinians as well as Israelis.

Mel this what is going on, this what your thugs are doing: ''The Palestinian Authority confirmed Tuesday that Fatah activists in the Gaza Strip have been shot in the legs by Hamas during Operation Protective Edge. Gen. Adnan Damiri, spokesman for the Fatah-dominated PA security forces in the West Bank, said that the activists were targeted after they violated the house arrest imposed on them by Hamas''.

Given that reports say that Mohammed Deif's wife & child were among the dead (the house being struck at least six times) it is clear this was a targeted assassination & collective punishment on family members. WAR CRIME!!! The Palestinians are correct, Israel backed by biased broker US, has no interest in lasting peace & resolution. Netanyahu wants to suppress the Palestinians by any means possible, whilst crying victim. As the Al Qassam website says "The Zionist entity cries & lies". How true!!

Israel is confirming they also tried to eliminate the Hamas terrorist leader Mohammed Deif, lets see if he reappears on TV tonight or not.

Hamas militant leader Mohammed Deif was never a peacemaker, but an enemy of Israel and peace in the Middle East.

Anyone going to the funeral of Mohammad Deif's wife and daughter? Tell me if Mohammad is wheeled in to lead the mourners, or not.
