Death toll at 35 as Israel strikes hit buildings in Gaza
Al Jazeera, 12 May 2021
As Israel's army continues to bomb the Gaza Strip early on Wednesday, at least 35 Palestinians, including 12 children have died.
At least five Israelis have died after Hamas, which rules Gaza, launched multiple rocket attacks from the Palestinian-controlled territory.
The rocket fire came after Hamas demanded Israel pull its security forces from the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem.
Gaza has not been subject to such intense bombardment since 2014.
