US-Israeli Gaza genocide 

The US-Israeli genocidal war against Palestinian people continues unabated in Gaza, with the southern city of Rafah the focus of the bombing campaign.  Israeli forces intensified air raids and artillery fire on several neighborhoods in the city. A dozen Palestinians, including a child, were killed and several others injured in Israeli attacks on two residential buildings in the west of Rafah. The Regime’s military vehicles have taken position about two-hundred meters away from the Rafah crossing, shelling its vicinity. Karam Abu Salem crossing’s vicinity is reported to be under heavy shelling as well. The confirmed death toll from the US-Israeli genocide in Gaza has now risen above 34,700. The actual figure, however, is believed to be much higher with thousands of bodies still under the rubble.

Israel Rafah invasion 

The UN rights chief says Israel's order for Palestinians to evacuate from eastern Rafah is "inhumane" as a ground invasion of the city looms. Volker Turk said forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee to areas with almost no access to aid for survival is inconceivable. He warned that the offensive would push suffering and destruction beyond already unbearable levels. Turk stressed that Israel's failure to meet the obligations of international humanitarian law on the displacement of civilians may amount to a war crime. The World Health Organization has also warned that the evacuation order creates unprecedented levels of humanitarian need. The UN agency said there is no safe and functional place in Gaza for people to move to.

Anti-Netanyahu protests 

Israeli protesters are calling on the regime to agree to the Gaza ceasefire proposal, which was accepted by Hamas. Protesters gathered in Tel Aviv and outside the residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in occupied al-Quds. They called on the regime to immediately secure the release of the captives held in Gaza. The protesters expressed outrage over the regime playing down the likelihood of a ceasefire. Israel says the proposal, which was mediated by Qatar and Egypt, is far from its demands but it will send a delegation to the ceasefire mediators to discuss it. The regime said it will continue its aggression against the refugee-packed southern Gaza city of Rafah. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has also called on the international community to pressure Israel to agree to the proposal.
