At least 14 Palestinians were killed and 29 injured Friday in Israeli airstrikes, hours before the start of a 72-hour ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

In the airstrike, 10 people were injured.

Six Palestinian civilians, including a child, were killed and 19 injured during airstrikes in eastern districts of Khanyounis, medics said.
