Woman, child die in Gaza airstrike

A woman and a child are among three Palestinians killed on Wednesday in an Israeli airstrike in the southern Gaza Strip, an emergency services spokesman says.

In a statement, Ashraf al-Qudra confirms three people from the Abu Daqqa family had been killed in a strike in Khan Yunis, including a 65-year-old woman and a 10-year-old boy.

Witnesses tell AFP the missile struck a car in the eastern Bani Suheila neighbourhood.

Earlier on Wednesday, another member of the Abu Daqqa family was killed in a separate strike on the city.
