Scores of Palestinians have been killed, and others injured, over the last few hours amid the relentless Israeli aerial and artillery bombardment in Gaza.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported casualties and injuries in a series of airstrikes by Israeli occupation forces targeting homes in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City. 

According to WAFA, ambulances are facing significant challenges in transporting the wounded and the dead bodies due to the indiscriminate Israeli bombardment and sniper fire.

The neighborhoods of Sabra, Tal al-Hawa, and Al-Daraj in Gaza City also reportedly experienced heavy artillery shelling, resulting in dozens of injuries.

Meanwhile, six civilians were killed and others injured as Israeli warplanes targeted several homes in Nuseirat, Bureij, and Deir al-Balah in central Gaza.

In southern Gaza, artillery bombardment on the eastern and western areas of Khan Yunis led to the killing of two individuals and injuries to others.

Israeli occupation forces also launched fire belts over the town of Khuza’a, east of Khan Yunis, destroying several homes – whose residents are now displaced – under the pretext of establishing a buffer zone, as reported by the Israeli organization B’tselem.

In Rafah, southern Gaza, Israeli fighter jets bombed two houses, resulting in the killing of five civilians and injuries to others.

In the meantime, Doctors Without Borders announced that the Nasser Medical Complex remains besieged by Israeli tanks, highlighting the difficulties in evacuating patients for medical treatment at its field hospital.

The organization expressed concern over the Israeli occupation forces’ presence around Gaza’s hospitals, hindering access. It said a large number of medical personnel remain in Israeli detention.

It was also confirmed that residents and displaced individuals in the northern areas of Gaza are facing severe famine and a catastrophic health situation amid the Israeli military siege on the region.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 29,606 Palestinians have been killed, and 69,737 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

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

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba.
