‘Screams under the rubble’: 42 said killed in Israeli airstrike in Gaza City

At least 42 Palestinians, including a 1-year-old baby and a 3-year-old toddler, were killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza City early on Sunday morning, the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry said.

Dozens remained trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings in Gaza City’s upscale al-Rimal neighborhood, according to the Palestinian Civil Defense organization. Paramedics and rescue crews continued to seek to extract the dead and survivors.

“We’re hearing screams under the rubble,” a member of the Civil Defense told the Al-Jazeera network as the search and rescue operation continued behind him.

Palestinian doctor Ahmad Abu al-Aouf, who served as director of internal medicine at Gaza’s al-Shifa Hospital, was reportedly killed in the bombing. A number of his colleagues held an impromptu funeral near the hospital on Sunday morning, reciting Quranic verses over his body.
