Israeli attacks kill eight near Gaza aid centre

Eight Palestinians were killed on Sunday in an Israeli air strike on a training college near Gaza City being used to distribute aid, Palestinian witnesses said, as Israeli tanks pushed further into the southern city of Rafah.

The strike hit part of an industrial college run by the UN Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA now providing aid to displaced families, the witnesses said. UNRWA and the Israeli military did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Gaza’s north faced the brunt of Israeli attacks on Sunday with five people reportedly killed in strikes on Gaza City, as the death toll from massacres on camps on Saturday rose to 43 people.

The Gaza City attacks follows a day of heavy casualties with 101 people killed in attacks, including children, on Saturday, Gaza’s health ministry said.

Meanwhile, hostilities on Lebanon’s southern border continued with Israeli fighter jets hitting “Hezbollah military structures” in Kfarkela in southern Lebanon, as fears of an all out war continued to grow after Hezbollah posted a video showing drone footage of Israeli sites.

The Lebanese Shia Muslim group said on Sunday it had struck the bases of an Israeli battalion in northern Israeli town of Beit Hillel with an explosive drone, as air raid sirens rung out.

On Saturday a neighbourhood in Al-Shati refugee camp and Tuffah in Gaza City was targeted by the Israeli military killing 43 Palestinians, according to local authorities.
