STORYLINE:

Bulldozers and rescue crews were clearing rubble on Monday from a building in southern Gaza that was hit by an Israeli airstrike on Sunday evening, killing 25 members of the same family, according to Palestinian health officials.

Officials said rescue teams had uncovered the bodies of at least 25 members of the Abu Jamea family underneath rubble of their demolished house in Khan Younis.

The airstrike reportedly struck shortly after the break of the Ramadan fast, according to the Red Crescent.

At a morgue in Khan Younis, family member Sabri Abu Jamea mourned the deaths of his relatives, laid out on shelves in refrigerators.

Sunday was the bloodiest day in the nearly two-week conflict between Israel and Hamas: more than 100 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed.

At least 508 Palestinians and 20 Israelis have been killed since the start of the offensive.

Tens of thousands of Gaza residents have been displaced.
