Israeli warplanes further carried out intense airstrikes that targeted several homes in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, causing multiple casualties. Ambulances were unable to reach the targeted locations due to the ongoing Israeli artillery shelling as well as drone-fired shots at anything in motion.

Simultaneously, Israeli fighter jets intensively fired around ten missiles at civilians’ homes in the Al-Sabra and Al-Rimal Al-Janoubi neighborhoods in Gaza City, causing several casualties among citizens.

In the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, occupation aircraft carried out seven missiles strikes targeting the eastern and central areas. The strikes resulted in dozens of causalities.

The number of civilians killed since the start of the Israeli aggression on Gaza on October 7 has risen to 29,878, mostly women and children. At least 70,215 others were injured. (T/RE1/P2)
