Death toll from Israeli attacks on Gaza rises to 83

Ongoing Israeli attacks on Gaza have killed 11 more Palestinians, taking the death toll to 83, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

Fatalities include 17 children and seven women, while a total of 487 people were injured to date, the ministry statement said.

The Israeli army said that about 1,600 rockets have been fired from Gaza towards various locations in Israel and they have added reinforcements near the enclave’s eastern lands.

In response, the Israeli army launched a series of missile strikes in Tel Aviv and Bersheba. A multi-story building collapsed in Gaza in that attack. A building next door was also severely damaged.

Tensions have been running high since an Israeli court last week ordered the eviction of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and annexed the entire city in 1980, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
