Israeli warplanes attack several locations across Gaza City on Monday Updated: 2021-05-17 14:35:07 KST

A new round of heavy Israeli airstrikes hit several locations in Gaza City early on Monday.
The 20 minute-long attack by more than 50 warplanes rocked the city from north to south.
The Israeli military said it attacked the homes of nine Hamas commanders across Gaza.
While there was little information on the extent of damage, there are reports that the attack caused widespread power cuts.
Monday's attack was longer and involved more airstrikes than Sunday's attack which flattened three buildings and killed 42 Palestinians.
So far, at least 197 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, including around 55 children with another 12-hundred people wounded.
On the Israeli side, Israel reports ten have been killed and hundreds have been injured in rocket attacks from Hamas.
Israel's Prime Minister on Sunday, hinted that the fighting will continue.

"Our battle against the terror organization continues in full-force. We are charging very heavy prices from Hamas for their unbearable aggression. The Israel Defense Forces carried out attacks on more than 1,500 targets during the last days."

This comes amid international efforts to halt the violence.
The UN Security Council met Sunday to discuss the situation, calling for an end to the conflict as well as the resumption of peace talks.

"This senseless cycle of bloodshed, terror and destruction must stop immediately, all parties must respect international law and international human rights law. The status quo at the holy sites must be upheld and respected."

Pointing out that the UN Security Council was not able to reach consensus, China's representative said all members need to take the necessary efforts to safeguard peace and security in the region.
