STORYLINE:

A new round of Israeli airstrikes and tank fire pounded the Gaza on Monday as officials in the coastal strip said two more Palestinian civilians died from the violence.

The Israeli military said it carried out 16 airstrikes early on Monday, targeting a mosque it said was used to store weapons and another it said militants used as a meeting point.

The headquarters of a Hamas-affiliated charity in Khan Younis was also struck late on Sunday.

Employees of the al-Rahma charity were on Monday inspecting the damage caused by the strike.

The Israeli military said that Palestinian militants fired 10 rockets into Israel on Monday, all of which landed in open areas.

The latest exchanges came a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the Israeli military campaign in Gaza could continue into September.

Since the fighting began, Israel has launched some 5,000 airstrikes at Gaza, while Gaza militants have fired close to 4,000 rockets and mortars, according to the Israeli military.
