Israeli warplanes continued to hit the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning, according to local media, demolishing dormitories and killing four Palestinians.
The latest killings came just hours after Israeli forces fired four more Palestinians and wounded dozens more during protests and strikes in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The protest was called in connection with a Palestinian bombing in Israel in Gaza.
About 220 Palestinians, including 63 children, have been killed in Gaza since the recent violence on May 10. About 1,500 Palestinians have been injured.
Twelve people have died in Israel, including two children, while 300 Israelis have been injured.
Despite increasing violence – now on the 10th day – efforts to stop the war between Israel and the Gaza Hamas regime have failed.
The United States has continued to ban UN Security Council from issuing a resolution calling for an end to the conflict, and telling ambassadors that public speaking will not help resolve conflicts.
France, however, has been working with Israeli neighbors, Egypt and Jordan, on a new opposition election.
China said it “agrees” with the French ideology.
Here are some recent updates:

Earlier, Mark Lowcock, a UN humanitarian official, asked Israel to allow access to Gaza.
“Crossing the border with Gaza should be opened and maintained at the same time as access to essential and human resources, including essential oils and the prevention of the spread of COVID-19,” he said in a statement.
I am deeply concerned about the tensions between the Palestinian territories and Israel.
In order to help ordinary people affected by the crisis, we need more funding to be able to respond and access support services.

Today, NYC has visited Palestine as part of a campaign to promote international cooperation in support of the ongoing strike in Palestine. We will continue to fight until the Palestinians are liberated and Palestine is free. (This is part of the journey – the police chased us across the bridge.) pic.twitter.com/yY8KVVYuDU
