Israeli warplanes continued targeting multiple locations and residential buildings and homes in Gaza, killing and wounding dozens.

Scores of Palestinian civilians, including women and children, have been killed and others wounded over the last few hours as the ongoing Israeli genocide campaign on the Gaza Strip enters its 95th day.

Israeli warplanes carried out intense airstrikes in the Khan Younis and Qizan al-Najjar areas in the south of the Gaza Strip, leading to the killing and wounding of several Palestinians.

Ambulance and rescue teams were unable to reach the wounded or to rescue the dead bodies due to the non-stop Israeli bombardment.

Israeli warplanes also carried out airstrikes targeting the vicinity of Nasser Medical Hospital in the city of Khan Yunis, while Israeli aircraft carried out intense fire belts targeting the Al-Zawaideh area in central Gaza.

The “Doctors Without Borders” organization announced that an Israeli airstrike targeted one of the organization’s shelters for displaced Palestinians in Khan Yunis.

The shelter housed more than 100 staff members and their families. At least four Palestinians were injured, including a 5-year-old girl, the daughter of one of the staff members. Her health condition was described as critical.

The organization confirmed that they had not received orders to evacuate the shelter.

An Israeli airstrike targeted a house east of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, resulting in multiple casualties.

A number of civilians were reported killed and injured following an Israeli airstrike targeting a house west of the Nuseirat camp in the central Gaza Strip.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 23,210 Palestinians have been killed, and 59,167 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.
