Israeli Gaza onslaught
Two months into Israel's genocidal onslaught against Palestinians, the regime continues with its airstrikes and ground operation. Israeli airstrikes have left at least 45 Palestinians dead in the central city of Deir al-Balah. The regime war planes targeted a residential building there. Over two dozen other Palestinians have been killed in Israeli bombings over the past few hours. Gaza health officials say the regime is now encircling Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza with tanks. They say snipers are shooting at anyone moving in the area. In the south, the regime dropped leaflets, telling Palestinians to flee to other areas. Residents say the intense Israeli airstrikes in the south include areas where Israel had earlier told people to seek shelter. A UNICEF spokesperson says safe zones in Gaza are neither scientific nor possible. Israel has sent dozens of tanks into southern Gaza. The regime’s military officials claim they are in pursuit of Hamas members in their Gaza operation.
Palestinian resistance fighters from the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades have managed to kill 10 Israeli soldiers in east of Khan Younis. They have also demolished three bulldozers, a tank and an armored vehicle in the north of the city. The resistance fighters also targeted the regime’s operations room in south of Gaza Strip. More than 80 Israeli troops have been killed since the regime launched its ground invasion of Gaza. The Israeli war has so far killed nearly 16-thousand Palestinians, around 70 percent of them women and children.
One Lebanese army soldier has been killed and several others injured in a fresh Israeli attack near a residential area.
