“Two Palestinians were killed in a raid by Israeli aircraft east of Gaza City,” Gaza emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya said late on Monday.
In the early hours of Monday morning before dawn, three Palestinians, including a 15-year-old boy, were killed in Israeli airstrikes.
Later in the day, another Israeli airstrike killed an elderly man and his daughter in a refugee camp in the north of the coastal enclave.
The Arab League has called the Israeli airstrikes “a massacre.”
Israeli warplanes and ground forces have frequently attacked the Gaza Strip since the end of the 22-day war on the territory in 2009. Most victims of the attacks are civilians, including women and children.
Gaza has been under an Israeli siege since 2007, when the democratically-elected Hamas government took control of the Palestinian territory.
