Israeli airstrikes continue to target residential homes, public and private property across various areas of the Gaza Strip, by land, sea and air, killing dozens of Palestinian civilians.

Dozens of Palestinian civilians, including children and women, have been killed, and others have been injured, as Israel targeted residential homes, public and private property across various areas of the Gaza Strip, by land, sea and air, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

According to WAFA correspondent, an Israeli warplane bombed a mosque in the Al-Daraj neighborhood in Gaza City, killing at least 12 civilians and injuring dozens, in addition to the destruction of a number of nearby homes.

Israeli aircraft bombed homes in the Old City of Gaza, in the vicinity of the Hammam Al-Samra area, in Palestine Square, in the Al-Zawiya Market, and in the Jabaliya parking lot, killing and injuring dozens.

Ambulances were reportedly unable to reach the targeted areas and recover the dead and injured due to indiscriminate Israeli shelling.

The occupation’s aircraft, artillery and tanks also bombed homes in the neighborhoods of Al-Zaytoun, Al-Shejaiya, and Al-Sabra, east of Gaza, killing and wounding dozens of civilians.

The bombing targeted the Saraya Junction in the Al-Rimal neighborhood, west of Gaza City, and led to the destruction of a number of residential buildings.

Dozens were also killed and others were injured in the occupation’s artillery shelling of two houses in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

The areas south of Khan Yunis also saw intense indiscriminate bombardment by aircraft and artillery during the land incursion of the occupation forces. 

Al-Qarara, Khuza’a, Abasan, and Sheikh Nasser saw a series of intense raids, which killed and wounded dozens.

20 Palestinians were killed in an Israeli bombing that targeted a home for the Houby family in the Shaboura camp in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

There are still missing people under the rubble, but ambulances are unable to reach them due to the intensity of the bombing.

The displaced people in Khan Yunis also live in extremely difficult humanitarian conditions, due to the continuous targeting of the areas, the scarcity of materials, and the difficulty of heading to the city of Rafah, due to the occupation’s targeting of infrastructure and roads, forcing most of them to take rugged roads on foot.

Since October 7, 16,250 Palestinians have been killed and more than 43,616 wounded, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.
