Despite Ceasefire 32 Died by Israeli Strikes on Gaza, 71 Injured

Published November 14th, 2019 - 07:31 GMT

Death toll in Israel's strikes on Gaza has topped 23 Palestinians as 71 others, including 30 children and 13 women, were injured in the blockaded strip since Tuesday. Figures of dead have gone up all the time with the latest to be registered at 32. 

The situation escalated in Gaza after Israel struck and killed Bahaa Abu al-Atta, the commander of resistance group Islamic Jihad, as well as his wife Asmaa Abu al-Atta.

On the other hand, a Gaza Strip ceasefire agreement was agreed in the early hours of Thursday, coming into effect at 5:30am (3:30 GMT), some sources have revealed.

The ceasefire deal was agreed hours after a Palestinian family of six was confirmed killed by an Israeli strike on their home in Gaza Strip.
