Dozens of Palestinians were killed and wounded in a new massacre carried out overnight on Saturday by the Israeli army in the Maghazi refugee camp, in the central area of the besieged Gaza Strip.

A violent Israeli bombardment targeted 15 homes in the Maghazi refugee camp, killing and wounding dozens.

At least 75 Palestinians were killed, according to Al Jazeera Net, but health officials warned that the death toll could rise further as many wounded lie trapped underneath the rubble.

Israel has, thus far, killed over 9,488 Palestinians in Gaza, including 3,900 children and 2,500 women, and wounded more than 24,000. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
