Israeli strikes kill 21, raising toll to 98: Medics

 
 

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories (AFP) - Israeli air strikes killed 21 people in Gaza on Monday, raising the overall death toll to 98 on the sixth day of the relentless bombing campaign.

In the latest raids, one person was killed when Israeli warplanes hit the Shuruq tower media centre in Gaza City, which houses Palestinian and international media outlets, among them official Hamas broadcaster Al-Aqsa TV.

It was the second time the building had been hit in as many days and left another three people injured, the Hamas-run ambulance service said.

Elsewhere, two more people died in bombing in Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, medics said.
