Scores of Palestinian civilians, including children and women, were killed, and others were injured, since dawn on Thursday, in the ongoing Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip, by land, sea, and air.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that scores of civilians were killed, and others were injured, in the ongoing raids on Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, and on several areas in the central Strip.

Moreover, over the last 24 hours, at least 55 citizens were killed in Israeli raids on residential buildings in the city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Israeli boats intensively bombed the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, causing dozens of dead and wounded.

Medical sources announced the death of three wounded people due to a lack of medical supplies at the Al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City.

The sources pointed out that hundreds of wounded people died as a result of the lack of service in the Al-Shifa Complex and other hospitals in northern Gaza.

The Shejaiya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, is also witnessing violent bombardment by Israeli aircraft.

The Civil Defense in the northern Gaza Strip reported that its crews were unable to reach the killed and wounded, due to the intense Israeli bombing.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that the occupation forces are still besieging the Jabaliya Ambulance Center, threatening the lives of 127 Palestinians, including medical personnel, and 22 wounded.

At least two Palestinians were killed, and others were injured, in an Israeli raid on the vicinity of the Rafah crossing in the southern Gaza Strip.

Moreover, the occupation forces continue to cut off communications and Internet services in the Gaza Strip for the second day in a row.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 20,000 Palestinians have been killed, including 8,000 children and 6,200 women, and 52,600 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
