Latest.Israel attack on Hamas cabinet building

Four Palestinians were killed in a new Israeli strike on Gaza on Friday, the Hamas health ministry spokesman told AFP, as multiple new raids struck across the territory.

"Three citizens were martyred in a strike in Maghazi camp and their bodies were taken to Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital," Ashraf al-Qudra said, adding subsequently that a fourth man was killed in the same strike.

Security sources named one of the dead as Ahmed Abu Jalal, a field commander of Hamas s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

Qudra added that the strike, in the central Gaza Strip, targeted a home and that two of those killed were brothers.

The latest deaths raised the toll in violence that began Wednesday afternoon to 28, with at least 270 people wounded, Palestinian officials said.

They came as fresh air strikes rattled buildings across the enclave, with officials reporting strikes in Gaza City, central Khan Yunis and southern Rafah.

Earlier, Hamas health minister Mufid al-Mukhalalati warned in a press conference at Gaza City s Shifa hospital that "there is an acute shortage of medicine and medical supplies."

He urged "Arab countries and all parties to support the health sector," thanking Egypt for the help it has already offered.

Since Israel s targeted killing of a top Hamas military chief on Wednesday afternoon, rockets fired from Gaza have killed three Israelis and injured 16, police and medics said.
