Fifteen Palestinians have been killed as Israeli jets continued to pound the besieged Gaza Strip for a second day, the Ministry of Health in Gaza said on Saturday.

A wave of Israeli air raids on the coastal enclave has left 15 people dead, including a 5-year-old girl, a 23-year-old woman and a commander of a Palestinian armed group.

One hundred twenty-five Palestinians have been injured, the ministry added in a statement.

The fighting, which began on Friday with Israel’s assassination of a senior commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, is drawing the sides closer to an all-out war.
