Scores of Palestinian civilians were killed and others were injured, most of them children and women, in a series of raids launched by Israeli forces at dawn on Thursday on various sites in the Gaza Strip.

Central Gaza

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that an Israeli bombing on Deir al-Balah and the Maghazi camp in the central Gaza Strip left a number of dead and wounded.

According to local sources, Israeli forces targeted a civilian car transporting wounded people from Deir al-Balah, which led to the killing of everyone in it.

A number of citizens were killed and others were injured, most of them children and women, in an Israeli bombing that targeted the Nuseirat camp, in the central Gaza Strip.

At least seven civilians were killed in an Israeli raid on a residential building, also located in Nuseirat.

Other Palestinians were injured as a result of Israel’s bombing of a house in the Zawaida area in the central Gaza Strip.

Southern Gaza

The city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, saw violent raids by Israeli aircraft and artillery, which resulted in the killing and injury of dozens of Palestinians, most of them children and women.

Israeli forces committed a horrific massacre near Al-Amal Hospital in Khan Yunis on Wednesday evening, which led to the killing of nearly 30 Palestinians. 

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society announced on Thursday morning that 12 Palestinians were killed and 12 others were injured as Israel renewed its attacks on the vicinity of the hospital.

The occupation aircraft also renewed its raids on the center of the city of Khan Yunis, and on agricultural land north of the city of Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip.

Al-Jazeera reported that a Palestinian was killed and others were injured on Thursday morning in an Israeli bombing on the Al-Wafiya neighborhood in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
