First terrorist deaths reported in Gaza after Israel launches wide scale airstrikes on Hamas terror targets
BREAKING: First deaths reported in Gaza among Hamas terrorists, after Israeli Air Force launches wide scale airstrikes in and around Gaza City, including near Shifa hospital and other central areas.
Large airstrikes hit near the Green Battalion Square area in West Gaza city for the first time since 2014.
Ambulances are rushing toward central Gaza City after Israeli strikes hit the area.
The strikes are believed to have hit warehouses of long range missiles which the Hamas terror group typically stores in sensitive urban areas.
Gaza health authorities say two children are among several wounded in the strikes in central Gaza City.
The IDF reportedly carried out the strikes after information was received over the intent to carry out long range missile attacks at Israel.
Israeli officials say Israel will reject any ceasefire that does not include a commitment by Hamas to stop rockets, terror and arson attacks.
UPDATE: Two killed and 16 wounded according to the recent toll in the central Gaza strikes.
