Citing medical sources, Al-Jazeera reported that at least 40 dead Palestinians arrived at the Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis over the past 24 hours. 

On Wednesday morning, a Palestinian child was killed by a bullet in her head fired by an Israeli drone at a shelter center in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, according to Al-Jazeera.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that four people were killed and a number of others were injured as a result of the targeting of a house of the Al-Najjar family in the Qizan Al-Najjar area, south of Khan Yunis. 

Among the victims were two children, one of whom was an infant. 

Two children, one of them an infant, were also killed and seven were injured in a bombing that targeted a house for the Al-Amoudi family in the Khan Yunis camp.

Nine Palestinians, including children, were killed when Israeli forces targeted a house of Miqdad family in the Al-Amal neighborhood, west of Khan Yunis.

Two people were killed and others were wounded due to the military aircraft’s bombing of a house belonging to the Amer family in the Khan Yunis camp.

The Israeli occupation artillery areas east and center of Khan Yunis, coinciding with the airstrikes.

Central Gaza

In Deir al-Balah, in the central Gaza Strip, two children were killed and a number of wounded after the occupation targeted a house belonging to the Fatayer family in Deir al-Balah.

The occupation artillery also bombed several other areas in the central region of the Gaza Strip, along with the Al-Tuffah and Al-Daraj neighborhoods.

Northern Gaza

WAFA reported that dozens of Palestinians were killed and wounded on Wednesday morning in an Israeli bombing of the Abu Hussein School, affiliated with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Refugees (UNRWA), which housed displaced persons in the Jabaliya Camp, in northern Gaza.

Moreover, according to WAFA, five of the detainees in Kamal Adwan Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip were injured by Israeli bullets, after a number of them were released and forced to return to the hospital, while all the male medical staff, the wounded, the sick, and the displaced are still being detained.

Israeli forces are still surrounding the hospital with tanks and snipers, for the fifth day in a row, firing fire and shells inside it, and preventing movement.

For his part, the head of the pediatric department at Kamal Adwan Hospital said that the occupation took all the men from the medical staff and the wounded to an unknown destination. 

The medical staff is currently unable to provide health care to children in intensive care.
