Israeli airstrike on cafe in Gaza strip kills 10 people

Gaza, Oct 22 (UNI) At least 10 people were killed and dozens were injured in an Israeli airstrike on a cafe in the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

On the same day, the news agency reported that 29 people were killed as a result of Israeli airstrikes on various parts of the Gaza Strip on Saturday afternoon.

On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip and breached the border, killing and seizing people in neighboring Israeli communities. Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food and fuel. The blockade was later eased to allow trucks with humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. The escalation of the conflict has resulted in thousands of people killed and injured on both sides.
