The death toll from the Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip has reached 733, as the Israeli offensive continues on to a 17th day.
Israeli forces targeted an area near the city of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, as well as a district in the northern Gaza’s Jabalia.
Reports say that at least 21 people were killed on Thursday - mostly in Khan Yunis - including a family of six.
At least 4,605 Palestinians have also been wounded since Israel started its air raids on July 8 and its ground invasion nearly 10 days later.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), about 150 Palestinian children have been killed. Another 107,000 children are also in need of direct and specialized psychosocial support.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has also said that one Palestinian child has been killed every one hour over the past two days in Gaza.
