At least 35 Palestinians have been killed in fierce Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza city of Rafah, the last refuge for displaced Palestinians. Dozens of people also injured in the attack.

News agency reuters confirmed the matter in a report on Monday (May 27).

The Israeli military said its air force struck a Hamas compound in Rafah and that the strike was carried out with "precise ammunition and on the basis of precise intelligence."

It took out Hamas' chief of staff for the West Bank and another senior official behind deadly attacks on Israelis, it said.

"The IDF is aware of reports indicating that as a result of the strike and fire that was ignited several civilians in the area were harmed. The incident is under review."

The spokesman for the health ministry in the Hamas-run Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qidra, said 35 people were killed and dozens others, most of them women and children, were wounded in the attack.
