Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency reports that spokesman for the Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said Friday, in a facebook post, that "the number of martyrs has risen to 18, with Beit Hanon town resident Aisha al-Hamdin dying of her wounds sustained on Thursday evening."

Qidra pointed out that 110 Gazans were injured during this period, mostly by live ammunition and airstrikes over several areas of the Strip.

The majority of the casualties affected by Israeli violence were in residential districts at the time of shelling or shooting, he added.
