Gaza9Aug7GAZA (PNIC):-At least 18 Palestinians were injured Thursday by an Israeli airstrike that flattened a cultural center west of Gaza City, according to the PNIC reporter.

Israeli F-16 warplanes fired at least eight rockets at the Said Al-Mashal Foundation for Arts and Culture in the center of the city.

The foundation confirmed on its Facebook page that its offices in Gaza City had been destroyed, saying the building also hosted offices for the Egyptian community in Gaza.

The Ministry of Health said 18 people were injured in the Israeli strike at the cultural center.

Earlier Wednesday, Israel escalated its aerial attacks on Gaza, killing three Palestinians including a pregnant woman and her 18-month-old baby.

Efforts continued during the day to contain the tension in Gaza and prevent a break of a new war.
