GAZA, April 12 — At least 25 civilians were killed and others injured in an Israeli airstrike on a house in the Gaza Strip Friday.

“The occupation warplanes also targeted the northern areas of the Nuseirat camp in the central Gaza Strip, while the occupation army blew up a number of buildings north of the camp,” it said.

According to medical sources, a number of civilians were wounded in an Israeli airstrike targeting a school housing displaced people in Nuseirat camp. They were subsequently transferred to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital.

Ambulance and civil defence crews managed to recover the decomposed bodies of 13 people from the Al-Balad area and the Al-Amal neighbourhood in Khan Yunis Governorate, south of the Gaza Strip.
