A night of heavy bombardment on the Gaza Strip has continued into Wednesday morning as Israeli forces launched intensive raids on various locations across the besieged coastal territory.

Local sources said Israeli fighter jets bombed sites belonging to Palestinian armed groups, in addition to security and police buildings. In Gaza City’s Tel al-Hawa neighborhood, a man, his pregnant wife, and their five-year-old boy were killed by an Israeli attack on their home.

Gaza’s ministry of health said the overall death toll since the latest offensive began stood at 43, including 13 children. Almost 300 others have been wounded.
