At least 700 Palestinians, most of them women and children, have been killed in the latest round of Israeli attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours.

The relentless Israeli bombardment has destroyed numerous homes, buildings, residential apartments, and both public and private properties.

The Israeli military bombarded the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza with missile shells, killing over 100 Palestinians.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza announced on Sunday that at least 400 people were killed in attacks on Shujaiya neighborhood and Jabaliya refugee camp.

Several civilians were killed and others injured when an Israeli airstrike targeted a residential building in the al-Daraj neighborhood in Gaza City.

Many people also lost their lives when a house was targeted by Israeli warplanes in Deir al-Balah in central Gaza

Israel has also been continuing its attacks on the eastern areas of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza.

The latest Israeli attacks targeted a house in the al-Junainah area in Rafah, in southern Gaza, leaving several dead.

The Israeli military further bombed a house in the Nadim area of the Al-Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza City. Airstrikes were also reported in the vicinity of the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza.

Many civilians are reportedly trapped under the rubble.

Continuous explosions are also heard in northern areas of Gaza as well.

The death toll in the besieged territory since October 7 is now around 16,000. Most of the victims are women and children.

The Gaza Health Ministry says Israeli forces have deliberately targeted 130 health facilities and put 20 hospitals out of service.

As the total siege imposed by Israel on the already blockaded territory continues, food is running out, and bread is becoming more difficult to get with each passing day.

Since October 7, bakeries across the Gaza Strip have been one of the targets of Israeli attacks. Dozens of bakeries have been either bombed or have gone out of service due to lack of fuel.


A senior member of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement has held the Tel Aviv regime fully responsible for the failure to extend the week-old truce which collapsed on Friday.  

“Claims that Hamas violated the terms of the truce deal are intended to justify the resumption of the genocidal war against civilians in the Gaza Strip,” Ezzat al-Resheq, a member of Hamas’s political bureau, said on Saturday.
