The death toll from more than two weeks of Israel’s relentless attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip has reached 805.

According to Palestinian authorities, a 26-year-old woman another aged 23, who was pregnant, were killed in an Israeli airstrike in the southern Gaza town of Deir-el-Balah on Friday.

Two other people, who were injured in an earlier attack in the city of Khan Yunis, also died of their injuries.

Israeli warplanes also destroyed the house of Salah Bardawil, a leader of Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, in the southern city.

Palestinian emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said around 100 Palestinians were killed on Thursday, making it one of the bloodiest days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

NGOs say Palestinian civilians, including a large number of women and children, comprise around 80 percent of total casualties.

Three have been killed in Israel while Israeli military fatalities stand at 32 with one trooper missing, according to the regime. Hamas says the number is higher.
