The death toll in the ongoing Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip has risen. Israeli forces attacked several installations in Gaza overnight on Tuesday,May 11 and early Wednesday, May 12. Another 8 people were killed. As a result, the death toll has risen to 36.

Al-Jazeera quoted Gaza's health ministry as saying that 10 of the 36 people killed since Monday were children. A four-month-pregnant woman and her four-year-old child were killed in a bomb attack on a building in the Tel Al-Hawa area at midnight on Tuesday. Three other women were killed when a building collapsed next to them. About 250 Palestinians have been injured so far.

On the other hand, the Palestinian resistance group Hamas has fired more than 200 rockets at Israel in the last three days. At least six people have been killed in the Zionist country. One of them is an Indian woman.

Earlier on Tuesday, May 11, Israeli forces carried out an airstrike on a 13-storey building in the besieged Gaza Strip. The building named 'Hanadi Tower' collapsed due to the bomb blast. However, no casualties were reported as residents moved out of the building earlier. The building is said to have housed the political office of Hamas leaders.

Meanwhile, Israel's main international airport, Ben Gurion, has been closed in the face of a series of rocket attacks by Hamas fighters. This airport is located right next to Tel Aviv. The Israeli military says a warning siren has been sounded in Tel Aviv. There was an explosion.

The Israeli occupation forces launched a series of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Monday, May 10 evening local time. At least 20 people, including three children, were killed on the first day of the attack. On the second day it increased to 28 people. The international media say the death toll could rise further.

For more than a week now, Israeli security forces and Palestinians have been at loggerheads with illegal settlers in the Sheikh Jarrah area. Meanwhile, Israeli security forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacked Palestinians.

Israeli forces also carried out violence in al-Aqsa during the holy month of Ramadan, Jumatul Bida and the holy night of Shabe Qadr. Unarmed Palestinians have been protesting. Meanwhile, Hamas launched a rocket attack on Israel last Monday in retaliation. Occupying Israeli forces have been carrying out air strikes since then.

Earlier in the day, Israeli security forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the early hours of Monday. Many Palestinians were injured. Israeli police and soldiers fired rubber bullets, tear gas and sound grenades at the Palestinians.

In the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Jerusalem fell to Israel. Jewish nationalists observe May 10 as "Jerusalem Day" to commemorate the conquest of Jerusalem.
