Israeli airstrikes continued on Friday for a third day after the collapse of Egyptian-led ceasefire talks.

By early afternoon, the Zionist regime carried out at least 28 airstrikes in Gaza, the military said.

At least four Gazans killed in the Friday’s airstrikes, the Hamas-led Palaestinina Information Center said. One of the airstrikes hit empty land in eastern Jebaliya in the Gaza strip, no injuries were reported.

The total number of civilians killed in Gaza during last three days of Israli offensives has risen to 75.

The renewed exchanges have dashed hopes for a lasting truce after a month-long war that has already killed over 2,090 Palestinians and injured more than 10,500.

Nearly a quarter of the dead - 469 - are children, according to a UNICEF field officer in Gaza.

On the Israeli side, 67 people have been killed in the past six weeks, including 64 soldiers, two civilians and a Thai worker.
