Israeli Bombs Kill 400 in Gaza’s Deadliest Night

Date:

More than 1,875 children have been killed by Israeli strikes launched against the Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian territory’s health ministry.

GAZA CITY — Palestinian health officials have reported a devastating toll of at least 400 lives lost due to Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip during the last 24 hours. Journalists have grimly characterized this latest wave of bombardment as “the deadliest night” witnessed during the ongoing Israeli violence in the region.

As the conflict enters its third week, Israel initiated a barrage of air strikes across the besieged city in Monday’s early hours, Al Arabiya reported citing the Palestinian prime minister.

The escalating violence in the Gaza Strip has resulted in an alarming humanitarian crisis, with the mounting death toll and widespread destruction intensifying concerns for the region’s stability. The cycle of violence continues to take a heavy toll on the lives of civilians caught in the crossfire, prompting urgent calls for a ceasefire and diplomatic intervention to address the long-standing issues fueling this conflict.

Israel’s recent airstrikes have struck multiple residential areas in Gaza, including the densely populated Jabalia refugee camp and Beit Lahia in the north, the Al-Rimal neighbourhood, the Al-Shati camp in the west, and Khan Yunis and Rafah in the south. As the Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) reported, these attacks have further compounded the already dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The people of Gaza are now facing a critical shortage of essential supplies, including food and medical resources, due to the overnight Israeli bombings. This alarming situation underscores the urgent necessity for humanitarian assistance and an expedited resolution to the ongoing conflict to alleviate the suffering of the region’s residents.

More than 1,875 children have been killed by Israeli strikes launched against the Gaza Strip in retaliation for the October 7 Hamas attacks, according to the Palestinian territory’s health ministry.

The central hospital in Gaza is reportedly overwhelmed by the number of wounded coming in ambulances, cars and trucks, mostly from Shijaiyah neighbourhood which bore the brunt of the Israeli attacks.
Gaza resident Anas Hamra, who lives on the coast of the territory, said he and his family huddled together in one room during the previous night, which he described as “the most terrifying” period since the operations began.
“No one is safe, nowhere is safe. Because you move, you are a potential target by the airstrike or by the drones, or even by the Israeli navy,” said Hamra. — Agencies
