As per the Palestinian Ministry of Health, at least 24 Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip after Hamas launched rockets from the coastal area into Israel.

Israeli troops continued to bomb the area until Tuesday morning, targeting places in Khan Younis, the al-Bureij refugee camp and the al-Zaitoun area.

At least three civilians were killed at dawn after an Israeli warplane targeted a house in al-Shati’s refugee camp.

A spokesman for Gaza’s civil defence, Raed al-Dahshan, told Al Jazeera that among the three were a woman and a disabled man.

Gaza’s health ministry stated the death toll from the Israeli attacks had risen to 24 people, including nine children. At least 106 others were injured.

Most children belonged to the same extended family. Two brothers and sisters, 11-year-old Ibrahim and seven-year-old Marwan, were the only children of Yousef al-Masri.

The children were playing outside their homes before the Ramadan iftar dinner in Beit Hanoun, north of the Gaza Strip before two explosions shook the street.

On Monday, the teacher, Eman Basher, paid tribute to Rahaf al-Masri, a ten-year-old girl killed in the attacks.

Earlier, Hamas, the ruling entity in Gaza, fired dozens of rockets at Israel, including a barrage of fire that left airstrikes all the way to Jerusalem, after hundreds of Palestinians were wounded by Israeli forces storming the Al Aqsa mosque in the occupied East Jerusalem.

Hamas has given Israel an ultimatum to relinquish the powers of Al Aqsa, the third holiest place in Islam, which is also revered by Jews.

The tension in Jerusalem was fueled by the planned forced expulsions of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah area and by a powerful Israeli invasion of Al Aqsa on one of the holiest nights of Ramadan.
