An Israeli attack on a house near a school housing displaced people in the southern Gaza Strip killed a number of Palestinians late Wednesday.
According to the official Wafa news agency, Israeli airplanes attacked a home near Ahmed Abdelaziz School, which is managed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in the Khan Younis refugee camp.
According to Wafa, at least nine Palestinians were murdered, including seven children, in an Israeli airstrike on the Al-Bakri family’s home.
It went on to say that there are still family members under the rubble.
An Israeli airstrike on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza killed an infant and injured several other people.
According to eyewitnesses, Israeli raids on residential houses in Rafah, south of Gaza, killed at least 20 Palestinians.
On October 7, the Palestinian group Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, a multi-pronged surprise attack that comprised rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel by land, sea, and air. It claimed the raid was in revenge for the takeover of Al-Aqsa Mosque and rising Israeli settler aggression against Palestinians.
Following that, the Israeli military started Operation Swords of Iron on Hamas targets in Gaza.
The United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has urged for a quick humanitarian cease-fire to alleviate the “epic human suffering.”
At least 3,478 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza, and many more have been injured.
