By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

Instead of calling on Israel to halt its genocide in Gaza, Washington, along with its British allies, launched a bombing campaign of Yemeni targets.

Meanwhile, Israeli massacres of Palestinian civilians continued unabated for the 98th day in a row while Palestinian Resistance continued to repel Israeli advancements.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 23,357 Palestinians have been killed, and 59,410 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.

  1. Israeli PM Netanyahu’s office wants to bring medicines to their hostages then show proof that they tecvd it alive. Don’t they understand that the Palestinians victims of their bombings and injured also need medicines especially their hospitals to treat these victims of their genocide? Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. There should be reciprocity here not just a one way advantage to the Israelis.
