Dozens of people were killed and injured on Saturday as a result of the Israeli bombing of all areas of the Gaza Strip.

The heavy Israeli bombardment continued on Saturday killing and wounding dozens of Palestinians, Al-Jazeera reported.

Shelters in northern Gaza were reportedly targeted with incendiary bombs, while fierce confrontations continued between the Palestinian Resistance and invading Israeli forces in all areas of the Strip.

Central Gaza

A number of dead and wounded, most of them children, arrived at Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital as a result of the occupation aircraft bombing a house in the Al-Salam neighborhood in Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

Medical sources at the hospital said that the condition of some of the injured was serious, given the scarcity of necessary medical supplies. 

The bodies of at least four Palestinians and a number of wounded were recovered from the rubble of a house for the Juifel family in the Al-Zawaideh area, which was targeted by an Israeli raid last night.

Rescue teams and residents rushed to the targeted site in an attempt to save any survivors from under the rubble, and the search is still ongoing.

Southern Gaza

Al-Jazeera correspondent said that the Israeli bombing on the eastern neighborhoods of the city of Khan Yunis led to the killing and wounding of dozens of Palestinians.

Palestinian medical sources reported that five citizens were killed and others were injured as a result of Israeli bombing on Rafah.

Al Jazeera correspondent in Gaza quoted medical sources as saying that a Palestinian was killed and ten others were injured in an Israeli bombing that targeted a house for the Al-Tahrawi family in the Berbera camp in central Rafah.

Ambulance teams are trying to recover the dead bodies from under the rubble and transfer the wounded to the Kuwaiti Hospital, despite the difficulties facing the rescue teams.

Incendiary Bombs

The Director-General of the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, Munir al-Bursh, revealed on Saturday that the Israeli occupation bombed shelter centers in northern Gaza with smoke and incendiary bombs, causing unprecedented cases of suffocation and burns.

“Last night we treated more than 100 cases of suffocation and burns,” he said in a statement to Anadolu news Agency, adding that “they had never seen anything like these injuries (caused by incendiary bombs) before.”

Since last October 7, the Israeli army has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip, leaving 17,487 martyrs and 46,480 wounded, most of them children and women, massive destruction of infrastructure, and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, according to official Palestinian and UN sources.

Fierce Resistance

Confrontations between the Palestinian Resistance and the invading Israeli forces are still fierce in all axes of the incursion into the Gaza Strip.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas, announced that its fighters destroyed 21 vehicles on all fighting fronts in the Gaza Strip during the last 24 hours.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, said that its fighters targeted Israeli vehicles and tanks on the front lines of Gaza City.

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera correspondent reported that the resistance fighters fired intense barrages of rockets at Greater Tel Aviv, while an Israeli security source confirmed that the last round of rockets was fired from Jabaliya and Shejaiya in the northern Gaza Strip.

The number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli war on Gaza since October 7 has reached 17,490, including 7,870 children and 6,121 women, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. 46,480 were wounded.
