Meanwhile, Al Jazeera television network reported Israeli attacks on residential buildings in the Palestinian towns of Khan Younis and Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip. It cited a medical source as saying that 53 people were killed.

Also on Monday, Israel announced that it had struck a Hamas target in the al Shati refugee camp in the Palestinian enclave.

According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, Israeli warplanes fired at least three missiles at several houses in the refugee camp, located in Gaza City, killing and injuring dozens of Palestinians.
