GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since midnight by Israeli airstrikes, medical officials said, while a further two died from wounds sustained in earlier attacks.

In the latest airstrikes, an unidentified man was killed in northern Gaza.

Earlier, a woman and a child were killed after Israel targeted a home in Beit Lahiya. Five people were injured in the strike on Raddad Tamboura's home.

Muhammad Shubeir was also killed in an airstrike in Gaza City.

Meanwhile, Hani Muhammad Yasin died of wounds he sustained several days ago while Nidal Badawi also died from injuries sustained Saturday in airstrikes on Rafah.

Earlier, three Palestinians were killed overnight Sunday as Israel's air-force targeted over 30 sites in the Gaza Strip, medical officials said.

Farhana al-Attar was killed in Beit Lahiya after a missile struck her home after midnight, medics said.

Yasin al-Biltaji and Yahya Abu Daqin were killed at dawn when Israeli warplanes fired missiles at a group of people in the Tuffah neighborhood of Gaza City.

Dozens were injured in the strike.

In Rafah, two Palestinians were injured by an Israeli airstrike near the crossing terminal, while seven people were injured in Jabalia when an Israeli strike destroyed the al-Kahlut family home.

The al-Ghoul, Nuthur, Karaja, and Abu Aun family homes were destroyed in targeted strikes overnight, witnesses said.

The Omar Ibn Abd al-Aziz mosque was destroyed in Beit Hanoun, together with the Ali Ibn Abu Talib mosque in Gaza City.

At least than 2,120 Palestinians and 68 people on the Israeli side, all but four of them soldiers, have been killed since July 8.

The United Nations says 70 percent of the Palestinian victims were civilians, and that among the dead were 478 children.

Around 460,000 people have fled their homes in Gaza -- more than a quarter of the densely-populated Mediterranean enclave's 1.8 million population.

Those mosques again! Well that is no longer a surprise or shocking. It's a disgrace that the Islamic clerics should and did allow them to become weapons stores, and the mosques court yard to be used for warfare.

Netanyahu to defense minister: ''Hit every source of terror in Gaza ''. So that marks the accurate bombing of the Omar Ibn Abd al-Aziz mosque in Beit Hanoun, together with the Ali Ibn Abu Talib mosque in Gaza City. Kol hakavod

#1 Candice...What hypocrisy! How about all those Jewish rabbis and fanatical settlers that do nothing but teach the children to hate and despise Arabs? This is the real problem which the Israelis have always tried to pretend doesn't exist. Israel tries to portray all Arabs as terrorists and that Jewish children should fear them. I've made multiple visits to Israel and the West Bank, and the nicest, most hospitable people I met were Arabs. The Israelis have been the crazy fanatical ones.

The deathtoll is 9? Really, Maan? Why are we resetting the body count? Is this a new IDF operation of the same one continuing?
