GAZA – More than 130 Palestinians were killed and dozens of others injured in attacks Israel carried out in Gaza on the 23rd day of its ongoing conflict with Hamas, according to Palestinian news agency WAFA.
There were dozens of casualties in attacks on the Beach refugee camp in Gaza City, while warplanes also bombed a six-story residential building in the Tal al-Hawa neighborhood.
Israel also dropped bombs on homes in the Al-Zaytoun, Al-Tuffah, and Shujaiya neighborhoods.
There were airstrikes on homes in the Jabalia refugee camp, and warplanes also destroyed a residential square in Bir al-Naja, north of the Gaza Strip.
In the center of the Gaza Strip, the planes struck homes in the Bureij and Nuseirat camps, and the city of Deir al-Balah.
Homes were also targeted in the cities of Khan Yunis and Rafah.
Israel has heavily bombarded Gaza since Oct. 7 when the Palestinian group Hamas carried out a cross-border attack, killing 1,400 people, and taking many hostages.
The Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip said the Israeli strikes had killed at least 7,703 people, mainly civilians and many of them children.
Gaza’s 2.3 million residents are also grappling with shortages of food, water, fuel, and medicine due to Israel’s blockade of the enclave. Only a few aid trucks have crossed into Gaza since the opening of the Rafah crossing point last weekend. -AA
