The Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip has confirmed, on Monday at night, that the Israeli army’s bombardment and shelling of the Gaza Strip, has resulted in the death of twenty Palestinians, including 9 children, and the injury of 95 others.

The Health Ministry added that, among the slain children is a girl, only nine years of age.

Meanwhile, the Ma’an News Agency has reported that five Palestinians were killed when an Israeli shell struck a yard behind the al-Omari Mosque in Gaza.

The Israeli bombardment in Jabalia also led to the death of Esmat Sha’ban az-Zein, Mousa Khalil az-Zein, Zakariya Ziad Alloush, Bashir Mohammad Alloush, Raed al-‘Abed Abu Warda, Nabil an-No’mani Dardouna, and Mustafa Mohammad Obeid.

Earlier Monday, the “Joint Chamber of Palestinian Resistance Factions” demanded that the Israeli authorities disengage from the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.

Resistance factions set a deadline of 6pm, at which time they would retaliate for the violations against the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem.

At 6pm the Palestinian resistance reportedly fired several crude, homemade rockets into Israel from the besieged Gaza Strip, no casualties or damage were reported.

Immediately afterward, Israeli warplanes began flying over Gaza and dropping missiles on the civilian population of Gaza. Although Israel claimed they were targeted Palestinian resistance operations, the Israeli military offered no evidence of that claim, and the overwhelming majority of those killed were civilians.
