At least 66 people have been killed and hundreds have been injured in the eastern neighborhood, medics said Sunday.
The death toll is expected to rise as more bodies are uncovered, while the day’s total across the Gaza Strip has surpassed 90 bringing the 13-day total death toll to more than 410, with at least 3,000 injured.
Medical sources said more than seven Palestinians were killed in other areas across the coastal enclave.
