At least 90 Palestinians were killed and 177 injured in nine massacres carried out by the Israeli occupation forces over the last 24 hours in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza announced.

In a devastating airstrike carried out by Israeli warplanes on Saturday night, a three-story house in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, was targeted, resulting in the killing of dozens of civilians, including six children. Many are still trapped under the rubble, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Local sources confirmed to WAFA the murder of 14 civilians in the airstrike that targeted the Abu Anza family house in the Al-Salam neighborhood east of Rafah, with dozens more wounded and many still missing. The attack also caused extensive damage to the surrounding area.

Meanwhile, in Khan Yunis, also in the south of the enclave, the Israeli occupation military carried out intense bombings from the air and artillery north of the city.

This assault coincided with the advancement of Israeli military vehicles towards Hamad City neighborhood, located north of the province, targeting residential homes with shells and gunfire.

Further casualties were reported in the north and central Gaza Strip. An airstrike targeted a home in the center of Jabaliya refugee camp, leading to several civilians killed and injured.

Additionally, a group of civilians in the Nuseirat camp in the central Gaza Strip were targeted, resulting in multiple injuries.

Later in the early morning, another Israeli airstrike targeted a house in northern Gaza City, resulting in several casualties. Medical sources in Gaza reported at least four Palestinians were killed and several others injured following the targeting of the Kahlout family home on Al-Saftawi Street north of Gaza City.

Currently on trial before the International Court of Justice for genocide against Palestinians, Israel has been waging a devastating war on Gaza since October 7. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 30,410 Palestinians have been killed, and 71,700 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

Palestinian and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba.

Israel says that 1,200 soldiers and civilians were killed during the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation on October 7. Israeli media published reports suggesting that many Israelis were killed on that day by ‘friendly fire.’
