Gaza, 17 Apr (ONA) --- At least 9 Palestinians were martyred today in Israeli air strikes on the cities of Rafah and Gaza.

According to Palestinian news agency (WAFA), 7 Palestinians, including 4 children, were killed as a result of the occupation aircraft shelling a house in central Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip. Local sources also reported the martyrdom of two other citizens in a shelling that targeted a house in Shujaiya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, which also resulted in the missing of 9 citizens.

The occupation aircraft launched raids on Salah al-Din Street and Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza City. Abu Bakr al-Siddiq Mosque in Al-Sabra neighborhood in Gaza was also bombed by the occupation aircraft.

Additionally, the Israeli occupation forces committed a new massacre in Al-Maghazi camp in the central Gaza Strip on Tuesday, resulting in 11 martyrs, the majority of whom were children, in addition to wounding others.

The Israeli occupation continues its aggression against the Gaza Strip for the 194th consecutive day, by land, sea, and air, leaving tens of thousands of martyrs and wounded. Meanwhile, thousands of victims are still under the rubble and on the roads, with ambulance and rescue crews unable to reach them, amid the unprecedented humanitarian tragedy, where hundreds of thousands of Palestinians live in very difficult conditions in light of the lack of water and electricity, and the occupation authorities prevent humanitarian aid from reaching them.
