Thousands of Palestinians Flee as Israel Bombs Southwest Gaza

Date:

Israel’s war on Gaza, now in its 276th day, has killed at least 38,098 Palestinians — majority of them women and children –– and wounded 87,705, with 10,000+ estimated to be buried under the debris and 9,500+ abducted by Tel Aviv.

GAZA – Thousands of Palestinians have fled large areas of southwest Gaza City after Israeli forces unexpectedly intruded for the first time in over three months and opened heavy fire targeting roads, homes, and residential buildings, resulting in dozens of casualties.

The Israeli forces’ incursion prompted a mass exodus of thousands of Palestinians to the city’s northwestern neighbourhoods.

An Anadolu Agency correspondent reported that Israeli military vehicles entered the Tel al-Hawa neighbourhood, the industrial area, the university zones, and the southern outskirts of the Rimal under heavy fire from fighter jets and artillery.

Massive explosions and continuous air and heavy artillery bombardment targeted eastern, central, and western Gaza City overnight and into Monday morning, witnesses said.

This was the first large-scale military offensive since the Israeli army’s attack near al-Shifa Hospital and its surroundings at the end of March.
