Israeli warplanes continued to bomb several areas of the Gaza Strip for the fourth consecutive day, resulting in dozens of casualties.
On Tuesday morning, 19 Palestinian civilians were killed in a new Israeli massacre in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.
11 civilians were killed in an Israeli air strike on a home belonging to the Al-Lahham family in the Austrian neighborhood of Khan Yunis.
Eight other Palestinians, all of the same family, were killed in the Israeli bombing of the Bani Suhaila area of Khan Yunis.
Similar air raids were also reported in Jabalia, north of the Gaza Strip, resulting in a number of casualties.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health affirmed that at least 687 Palestinians were killed, including 140 children and 105 women, and 3,726 wounded.
The Israeli attacks flattened residential buildings in giant explosions, including health facilities, mosques, and schools.
Palestinian health officials had been issuing warnings of an imminent stop in the provision of medical services due to the lack of fuel needed to operate the electricity generators in hospitals and health facilities across Gaza.
As it puts the lives and property of civilians in grave danger, Israel’s aggression against the Gaza Strip represents a flagrant violation of international humanitarian and human rights laws.
The unjustified killing of civilians and healthcare workers constitutes a war crime, whose perpetrators should be held accountable and tried before the International Criminal Court. This brutal aggression highlights the need to prosecute those responsible and bring them to justice.
