The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza announced on Sunday that more than 700 Palestinians were killed in the past 24 hours, as a result of Israel’s ongoing aggression on the besieged Strip, Al-Jazeera reported.  

The relentless Israeli bombardments have resulted in the destruction of numerous homes, buildings, residential apartments, and both public and private properties.

In Gaza City, several civilians were killed and others injured when an Israeli airstrike targeted a residential building in the Al-Daraj neighborhood, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Also in Gaza City, Israeli warplanes targeted six houses belonging to the Dahshan and Al-Akka families in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, resulting in dozens of casualties and injuries. Many civilians are reportedly trapped under the rubble.

The Israeli military further bombed a house in the Nadim area of the Al-Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza City. Airstrikes were also reported in the vicinity of the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out multiple air raids on Deir al-Balah in central Gaza simultaneously with shelling targeting residential squares from Israeli tank units.

The Israeli occupation military bombarded the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza with missile shells, killing over a 100 Palestinians, with many feared dead under the rubble of destroyed homes.  

Israeli airstrikes and artillery shelling also targeted the city of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, causing casualties among civilians. Additionally, several homes in the town of Al-Qarara and the eastern and coastal areas have been targeted by Israeli bombardment.

Furthermore, the homes of the Abu Eita and Abu Zeitoun families in northern Gaza were hit by Israeli airstrikes.

The Palestinian Civil Defense Service said on Saturday that its teams rescued hundreds of people trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings in the Shejaiya neighborhood in the east of Gaza City, which was also bombed by the Israeli army.

In a statement, the Civil Defense said that more than 300 Palestinian citizens, including the bodies of those killed and injured in the Israeli attack, have been retrieved from the collapsed structures in the Shejaiya neighborhood.

Since October 7, at least 16,000 Palestinians, including over 6,500 children and more than 4,000 women were killed, with another 40,652 wounded, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.
