Israeli genocide in Gaza

It is day 38 of the Israeli war of genocide on Gaza where relentless airstrikes continue to hit civilian areas, including houses, schools, and even hospitals. The latest Israeli air attacks took the lives of 32 Palestinians. The strikes hit two houses, one in the southern city of Khan Yunis, another in Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip. Also in the north, a UN-run school was struck in the city of Beit Lahia. The Israeli regime also bombed several hospitals where people had taken shelter. Palestinians say the regime is targeting everywhere in the blockaded territory. The total death toll in Gaza has passed 11,100, over 8,000 of whom are women and children. Hundreds of people are also missing under the rubble of bombed-out buildings. Meanwhile, the Israeli regime is pressing ahead with its ground operation as well. Heavy fighting has been reported around Gaza City. The Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad resistance movement say they have targeted Israeli troops and vehicles south of the city. The regime says 18 of its soldiers have been killed in the ground invasion that began two weeks ago. 

Gaza healthcare crisis

Several UN bodies have urged immediate international action to stop Israeli strikes on hospitals in the Gaza Strip. The call was issued by the regional directors of the United Nations Children's Fund, the World Health Organization, and the UN Population Fund. They voiced grave concern over the latest reports of attacks on hospitals, namely al-Rantisi Children's Hospital, al-Shifa and al-Quds Hospitals, as well as areas in their immediate vicinity. The three UN bodies added that Israeli strikes have killed many civilians, including children, and prevented safe access to hospitals for health staff, the wounded, and other patients. They explained that premature and newborn babies on life support are dying due to power, oxygen, and water cuts at al-Shifa Hospital, while others remain at risk.

Humanitarian disaster in Gaza

The International Committee of the Red Cross warns the situation in Gaza is rapidly approaching a humanitarian disaster, calling for the protection of civilians. The ICC says an unbearable human tragedy is unfolding as Israeli attacks are targeting densely populated areas in the besieged territory. It also voiced concern over the precarious and unsafe evacuation of civilians from the north. The ICRC said thousands of displaced Palestinians do not have access to basic needs, including water, food and shelter. It also underlined that the volume of humanitarian aid coming into the territory is inadequate.
