Israel launched more than 30 aerial attacks in Gaza on Saturday, killing five Palestinians, and terrorists fired rockets at Israel as the conflict entered a second month, defying international efforts to negotiate an agreement for an extended ceasefire.
Medical officials in Gaza said two Palestinians were killed when their motorcycle was bombed in the al-Maazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, and the bodies of three others were found beneath the rubble of one of three bombed mosques in the Nusseirat refugee camp.
Another attack reduced a security complex belonging to Gaza's dominant Hamas faction to a huge cloud of smoke, but there were no casualties. In other attacks, three houses were bombed, and fighter planes strafed open areas, medical officials said.
The IDF said that since midnight it had attacked more than 30 sites in the coastal enclave, targeting, among other things, warehouses, training sites, houses and mosques.
IAF airstrikes killed five Palestinians on Friday, among them a 10-year-old boy near a mosque in Gaza City.
