Israeli warplanes keep up the regime’s genocidal war against the Gaza Strip, killing as many as 26 people in an airstrike targeting the city of Rafah in the southern part of the coastal sliver.

Sixteen children and six women were among those who lose their lives when Israeli aircraft bombarded two residential buildings in the city, Qatar's Al Jazeera television network reported on Monday.

Israeli aerial attacks also hit the city of Khan Younis in the south.

Elsewhere in the territory, the regime’s aircraft struck the town of al-Zawaideh and the al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza and the Zeytoun neighborhood in the southeastern part of the Gaza City.

Nuseirat and Maghazi refugee camps in central Gaza as well as the al-Mughraqa and al-Zahra areas in the territory’s northern region were also targeted.

Israeli gunboats were also reported to have attacked Gaza’s central and southern coastline, while the regime’s drones targeted a school in al-Bureij.

At least 34,097 people have died across Gaza since October 7 last year, when the Israel iregime started taking the blockaded strip of land in response to Operation Al-Aqsa Storm by the territory’s resistance movements.

Women and children comprise some 72 percent of the victims of the war, which has also wounded as many as 76,980 others.

Despite the unabated campaign of bloodshed and destruction, the regime has so far fallen short of realizing its goals, including defeating Gaza’s resistance and causing forced displacement of the territory’s entire population to neighboring Egypt.
