GAZA CITY:  At least 802 Palestinians were killed and 5,200 injured since Israel started its current aggression against Gaza on July 8, a Palestinian medical official has said.

Three civilians were killed in hospital from fatal injuries they have sustained earlier in Khan Yunis, southern the Gaza Strip, spokesman for the Health Ministry in Gaza Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Three other civilians were killed and several others were injured in an Israeli raid of a house in Khan Yunis, he added.

He condemned the bombing of an ambulance with three missiles while on its way to hospital, leaving three wounded.

On July 8, Israel launched a large military operation dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” in the Gaza Strip.
