The Israeli regime has attacked an Italian tower in the besieged Gaza Strip, injuring many people and wreaking more destruction on the blockaded territory.

Israeli warplanes launched attacks on the tower in al-Nasr neighborhood in Gaza City on Monday, injuring 20 Palestinians.

On Sunday, the Israeli army conducted an attack on a group of civilians near al-Shifa hospital in the city.

At least one Palestinian was killed and around a dozen, including children, were injured after a missile hit the group.

Many Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are killed on a daily basis as the Israeli military continues pounding the impoverished region.

More than 2,130 Palestinians, including around 570 children, have been killed since Israel launched its onslaught on Gaza on July 8. Some 11,000 others have been wounded.

The United Nations says over 80 percent of the killed Palestinians have been civilians.

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Israel.
