GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Schools in Khan Younis City, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, were suspended on Saturday after Israeli warplanes continued to carry out airstrike across Gaza.

According to local sources, panic was caused in the schools of Khan Younis after loud explosions from the Israeli airstrikes rocked the city and areas in the vicinity of the schools, forcing local education officials to cancel classes immediately.

Sources said that schools across the Gaza Strip were instructed to decide on whether or not to allow students to attend classes on Saturday depending on the situation in their specific area.

Since the predawn hours of Saturday, Israeli warplanes carried out more than 80 airstrikes over Gaza, targeting buildings and various sites, as well as causing serious material damage to a number of homes and a hospital.
