The Palestinian Red Crescent warned that the health situation in Rafah is catastrophic and is getting worse by the day. 

UNRWA is under attack: while more Western countries suspended their funding to the UN Palestine refugee agency, Israel bombed a UNRWA center hosting displaced Palestinians in the Al-Rimal neighborhood.

Meanwhile, Palestinian and Arab Resistance continues unabated.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 26,637 Palestinians have been killed, and 65,387 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.
