GAZA, Sunday, May 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Twenty-seven innocent Palestinian civilians were pulled out from the rubble of the homes levelled to the ground last night by Israeli warplanes in the neighborhood of Al-Rimal in Gaza City, raising the death toll of the barbarian Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip since last week to 181.
The number could rise as civil defense teams are searching for any more people who might be trapped under the rubble. Over 50 other civilians have also been injured in the Israeli airstrikes on the neighborhood, located on the west side of Gaza City.
The latest Israeli airstrikes, in addition to those carried out over the past five days, have caused significant damage to infrastructure, including electricity networks and roads, cutting the geographic connection between major neighborhoods in the coastal enclave.
Entire buildings, homes and apartments were levelled to the ground by Israeli warplanes and artillery during the ongoing Israeli aggression which mainly targets the civil population.
The latest figures bring up the number of Palestinians killed since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on Gaza last week to 181, including 52 children and 31 women, and the wounded to 1200.
