More Palestinians, including women and children, are killed or injured as the Israeli regime renews its airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip.

The number of Gazans killed during Tuesday and Wednesday amounts to approximately 30 with at least eight children among the dead, according to medical officials.

More than 120 others are said to have been wounded in the past two days’ onslaught.

The heaviest death tolls were reported from airstrikes on mosques and refugee camps.

Tel Aviv’s recent attacks have been focusing on the Zeytoun neighborhood in eastern, Rafah in southern, and Deir al-Balah in western Gaza.

The Israeli military said it targeted 60 locations in the war-stricken sliver.

Israeli warplanes and tanks have been pounding the blockaded enclave since early July, inflicting heavy losses on the Palestinian land.

At least 2,049 people, mostly civilians, have lost their lives and more than 10,200 have been injured despite pressure from the international community on the Tel Aviv regime to end aggression against Palestinians.

Nearly 400,000 Palestinian children are in immediate need of psychological help due to “catastrophic and tragic impact” of the Israeli war, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Israel.
