Three Palestinians including a 12-year-old girl were killed on Sunday at the hands of the invading Israeli occupation terrorist forces (IOTF) troops in northern Gaza Strip, medical sources reported.
They said that Nirmin Abu Saif, 12, was killed east of Jabalia in Israeli (IOTF) shelling while Wisam Abed Rabbo was killed in Beit Hanoun along with Khaled Rayyan, the nephew of Dr. Nazzar Rayyan, one of the Hamas political leaders. Khaled was a member of the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.
The Israeli (IOTF) bloodbath in Gaza on Saturday claimed the lives of more than 61 Palestinians and wounded 270.
Meanwhile, the minister of Awkaf and religious affairs in the PA caretaker government, Dr. Yousuf Mansi, denounced in a statement on Sunday the IOTF air raid on a mosque in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, on Saturday that killed six Palestinians and demolished a major section of the mosque.
He described as "serious" the IOTF targeting of a Mosque in a flagrant violation of the sanctity of places of worship.
The minister compared what the IOTF troops were doing in Gaza to the Mongols when they conquered Baghdad during which they destroyed its mosques and killed its religious leaders in absolute disregard of their sanctity.
Mansi asked the Arab and Islamic countries to support the Palestinian people and to support Palestine's mosques and holy shrines.
