Israel bombs home for the disabled in Gaza

The Telegraph reports: An Israeli air strike hit a home for disabled people on Saturday as the Operation Protective Edge in Gaza continued for a fifth day, with the death toll passing 120 Palestinians.

Two were killed in the strike that hit a charitable association for the disabled in Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza, while three others died in a second attack in western Gaza City, local health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

There were unconfirmed reports that a third body was later pulled from the rubble at the home for the disabled. A mosque was also hit by an air strike overnight.

Ma’an reports: Ongoing Israeli airstrikes across the besieged Gaza Strip have killed at least 20 Palestinians since midnight, bringing the total death toll to 128, Gaza medical sources said Saturday.
