US-Israeli onslaught on Gaza 

Israel's onslaught on the Gaza Strip is now in its 146th day, as the regime’s indiscriminate strikes kill more civilians in central and southern parts of the territory. Israeli airstrikes killed at least six Palestinians in a town near Khan Yunis. Casualties were also reported following the Israeli bombardment of a residential block in Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. Meanwhile, Gaza’s health sector remains a main target for Israeli strikes. The al-Awda hospital in northern Gaza has stopped its services due to severe shortage of fuel and medical supplies. Kamal Adwan Hospital, which was the last hospital in service in northern Gaza, has also stopped working after shutdown of its electric generator. The Israeli genocide has so far killed nearly 30,000 Gazans, leaving over 70,300 others injured. 

Israel weaponizing food 

The Israeli regime is using starvation as a weapon against Palestinians in its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip. Now, Palestinian health officials say six children have died due to severe malnutrition and dehydration in northern Gaza. According to medical sources, four infants in Kamal Adwan Hospital, and two others in Al Shifa Medical Complex have died of malnutrition. Seven other infants at Kamal Adwan Hospital are in critical condition due to poor feeding. Last week, The Global Nutrition Cluster documented a steep rise in malnutrition among children, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women in Gaza. Nearly 21 weeks of Israeli military aggression has made food and safe water incredibly scarce, compromising women and children’s nutrition, and causing a surge of acute malnutrition. The UN humanitarian office says the entire population of Gaza faces crisis or worse levels of food insecurity.

Read sea tensions 

A German naval frigate taking part in a European mission in the Red Sea has mistakenly opened fire on an American MQ-9 Reaper drone, nearly shooting it down. According to German media, the frigate fired two missiles at the drone but both crashed into the sea because of a technical defect. Germany's Defense Ministry has confirmed the incident, which took place on Monday. It said the frigate opened fire after efforts to identify an unknown drone were unsuccessful and none of Germany’s allies reported a drone in the area. The frigate was deployed to the Red Sea as part of an EU mission to allegedly secure international shipping from attacks by the Yemen’s army. During past months, Yemen’s armed forces have launched numerous attacks on Israel-linked ships in support of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
