By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

On the 103rd day of the Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip, a mediated agreement allowed for the transfer of medicine to Israeli prisoners in Gaza and Palestinian patients in the Strip. 

The agreement, some hope, would be the start of the return to negotiations regarding freeing prisoners, allowing for badly needed supplies and ultimately ending the war. 

On the ground, however, the Israel war escalated, mostly killing civilians in Khan Younis, Rafah, Deir Al-Balah and Jabaliya. 

Palestinian Resistance continues to hit back, carrying out many operations against invading Israeli soldiers. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 24,448 Palestinians have been killed, and 61,504 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.
