Palestinian deputy labor minister killed in Israeli strike in Gaza

GAZA CITY – Palestinian Deputy Labor Minister Ihab al-Ghussein was killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza City on Sunday, local authorities said.
Gaza's government media office said al-Ghussein was killed along with a group of Palestinians after he was directly hit by an Israeli plane, without providing further details.
The office said al-Ghussein's wife and daughter were earlier killed in an airstrike on a house where they had taken refuge.
There was no immediate comment from the Israeli army on the report.
Al-Ghussein had previously served as a spokesman for the Hamas-run Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip.
More than 38,150 Palestinians have been killed since the Israeli government waged war against the Hamas group after the Oct. 7, 2023 attack. (PNA)
