Israeli jets have continued attacking high-rise buildings and other targets in the Gaza Strip today, as Palestinians marked Eid while under fire.

Since the bombardments began late on Monday, Gaza’s health ministry says at least 87 people, including 18 children, have been killed.

At least six Israelis and one Indian national have also been killed, and Israel says it’s been hit with 1,600 Hamas rockets.
