The house of his brother, Mohammed Sinwar, was also bombed with approximately 15 air raids.

“The Israeli warplanes launched more than 155 air strikes among several areas of Gaza Strip as a reaction of launching batches of new versions of missiles by the Palestinian armed resistance factions towards southern and central Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv,” said a civil defense spokesman.

Ambulance and civil defence crews in Gaza were still searching for bodies and survivors under the rubble of the bombed buildings.
