Israel Bombed Rafah Over 60 Times in 48 Hours After ICJ Orders


The Israeli military carried out more than 60 air raids on Rafah in the 48 hours after the World Court ordered it on Friday to halt military operations in the southern Gaza city, according to a rights monitor.

Amid an Israeli ground invasion of the area, dozens of artillery shells and constant gunfire were also directed toward Palestinians in Rafah in that period, according to the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor, Aljazeera reported.

“Thirteen Palestinians were killed in the 48 hours following the Court’s ruling, including six members of the Qishta family, an elderly mother and three of her children – two girls and one boy – and an adult son and his two children,” the Geneva-based organisation said.

They were reportedly killed on Saturday in Khirbet al-Adas, an area north of Rafah that was not included in the Israeli evacuation orders.
