By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

Famine, thirst, genocide, and international neglect define the state of affairs in Gaza on the 80th day of the war. 

Relentless Israeli bombardment massacred hundreds of Palestinians in Meghazi, Deir Al-Balah, Bureij, Nuseirat, Khan Yunis and Jabaliya.

Large shipments of US weapons continue to arrive in Israel, as Washington still refuses to call for a ceasefire. 

Yet Palestinian Resistance continues to repel advancing Israeli troops throughout Gaza. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 20,424 Palestinians have been killed, and 54,036 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.
