'Israel’s bombardment of the occupied Gaza Strip entered its third day on Sunday.
By late evening on Sunday, Israeli strikes had killed 19 Palestinians that day, bringing the toll to at least 27 Palestinians slain since Israel escalated its lethal attacks on the territory on Friday.
Health officials in Gaza continued to announce new deaths on an almost hourly basis, including late Sunday night Amani al-Madhoun, a 33-year-old woman who was pregnant.
She is the second pregnant woman to die in the context of the current escalation, although human rights organizations continued to investigate the cause of an explosion that killed a pregnant mother and a young child on Saturday.
Also Sunday evening, the health ministry in Gaza announced that three people had been killed in an Israeli airstrike in the north, including a baby, though few details were immediately available.
In Israel, four people have been killed as Palestinian resistance factions returned fire with barrages of rockets reaching dozens of kilometers into Israel.
Israeli warplanes and artillery have struck more than 100 sites across the besieged territory, totally destroying seven large residential and commercial buildings, at least 14 homes, as well as offices, according to the Gaza-based human rights group Al Mezan.
Dozens more homes in areas surrounding targeted buildings sustained damage.
“The raids have caused fear and panic among civilians,” especially children, who are half of Gaza’s two million population.'
