More bodies pulled out from rubble of residential building in Gaza, death toll hits 188

GAZA, Sunday, May 16, 2021 (WAFA) – Rescue teams have pulled out more bodies of Palestinian civilians from the rubble of a residential building that was totally destroyed last night by Israeli airstrikes in the al-Rimal neighborhood in Gaza City, taking the death toll of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip to 188.

Medical sources reported that more bodies, mostly of children, were pulled out from under the debris of the Al-Kulak building in central Gaza City, raising the fatalities among the residents of the building to 37.

The sources added that 13 women and eight children were among the victims, in addition to the injury of 50 others.

Rescue teams are still digging through the rubble for survivors, according to the sources.

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 leveled to the ground by Israeli warplanes and artillery during the ongoing Israeli aggression which mainly targets the civil population.
