A Palestinian child was killed and three were injured in a fresh Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Sunday, a Health Ministry official said.

Ahmed al-Masri, 13, was killed and three other Palestinians sustained various wounds after the Israeli warplanes pounded a farmland in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza Strip, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency.

The latest fatality brings to 1918 the number of Palestinians killed in relentless Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip since July 7. Around 10000 Palestinians have also been injured.

Israel resumed its airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Friday as soon as a three-day ceasefire with Palestinian factions expired

Israel claims that the offensive aims to undermine rocket-fire capabilities by Gaza-based Palestinian factions.

According to Israeli figures, at least 64 soldiers have been killed in battles with Palestinian fighters in the Gaza Strip and three civilians by rocket fire.
