BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike on Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip killed 22-year-old Muhammad Zaanin and injured several others, bringing Tuesday's death toll to seven.

A Ma'an reporter quoted witnesses as saying that an Israeli reconnaissance drone fired a missile at a group of people in Beit Hanoun killing Zaanin instantly.

Six Palestinians were killed earlier in Israeli airstrikes, witnesses said.

In the latest airstrikes, two employees from a local electricity company were killed when Israel targeted their car.

The victims were identified as Tamer Hamad and Muhammad Thaher.

Another two unidentified Palestinians were killed when an airstrike targeted a group of people in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza City.

A fire broke out in the area following the attack.

Earlier, Muhammad Muin Abu Ajwa and Hasan Omar al-Sawwaf were killed in airstrikes targeting central Gaza City.

Israel also targeted a 16-storey mixed-use complex known as "Little Italy", causing its complete collapse, witnesses said.

Warplanes also fired on the 14-storey al-Basha building in the western Rimal neighborhood, causing massive damage and wounding another 15 people, witnesses and medics said.

Part of the building was used by Sawt Al-Shaab radio, or "Voice of the People", run by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Anybody can see that Israel is losing it, the battle and all diplomatic efforts in the area. Netanyahu is desperate for a win but he doesn't know which way to get at it. By inflicting so much damages in Gaza its not going to make him any winner, and all the damages that occur the last few days are of his frustration for not be able to win over Hamas. Maybe if he flatten Gaza he can see where all the rocket launchers at. And even that he cannot win over Hamas.

HAMAS prefers WAR ON ISRAEL, instead of peace for Gaza, and thus IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF GAZA'S DEATH & DESTRUCTION.
