At least 20 Palestinian civilians were wounded in two Israeli airstrikes targeted the largest cultural centre in the Gaza Strip on Thursday evening, Palestinian medical sources said.
Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli fighter jets launched two large missiles that destroyed Al-Mis-hal Cultural Centre, a five-story building at Al-Shati Refugee Camp in western Gaza City.
The massive Israeli attack caused explosions that shook buildings in Gaza City as dust and gray smoke filled the air.
Spokesman of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra said that least 18 people were wounded in the air strike.
Earlier to the Israeli attacks, the Palestinian factions in Gaza declared that they consider the latest exchange of fire between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian resistance in Gaza over.
They said that maintaining peace now depends on the intention of the Israeli occupation officials, but it seems that the Israeli occupation is intending to carry more crimes against the 2 million people who have been under a strict Israeli siege for 12 years.
It is wort noting that four Palestinians were killed, including a mother, her 18-month-todler, and 40 others were wounded, including eight in moderate and serious conditions.
