Gaza, Aug 26 - As many as 7,000 Palestinians have been languishing in Israeli jails, a Palestinian government report has said.

According to the report issued by the Palestinian Ministry of Captives and Released Prisoners Affairs, the figure could increase in the backdrop of the daily campaigns of detentions by the Israeli forces against Palestinians, MENA reported Tuesday.

Of the 7,000 prisoners, 477 are serving life terms in Israeli jails, while 250 children are also among the prisoners, the report said.

Meanwhile Tuesday, Israel's massive air and ground offensive in the Gaza Strip killed four Palestinians, including two electricity workers, medics said.

Gaza health ministry's spokesperson Ashraf al-Qedra told reporters that an Israeli war jet bombed a car in Gaza city's neighbourhood of al-Tuffah, killing two people in the vehicle.
