While the Israeli occupation continues its aggression against Palestinian civilians in the besieged Gaza Strip, for the fifth day in a row, it committed a new massacre in Khan Yunis today, Wednesday, against the Al-Agha and Abu Shab families, where at least 16 Palestinians were killed.
Two houses were bombed by Israeli aircraft without warning, killing eight people from each family, and wounding dozens.
The IOF artillery continues to bombard the areas adjacent to the border strip, especially the area east of Khan Yunis and the northern Gaza Strip, while its boats bomb all the areas adjacent to the sea.
The death toll from the occupation’s aggression against Gaza has risen to 950 dead and 5000 wounded, in addition to massive destruction of buildings, residential towers, property and infrastructure, according to the Ministry of health. The numbers are expected to rise as new victims fall every hour under the ongoing bombardment of the IOF on civilians.
The Ministry of Health warned of serious health repercussions due to the power outage in the Gaza Strip, which will force hospitals to use electrical generators for long hours until its fuel finishes.
“All hospital beds have been occupied, and medicines and medical consumables are finishing as well,” the ministry of health stated.
The Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip constitutes a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and human rights, without any deterrent.
All those involved in the aggression on Gaza must be brought to justice, as the unjustified killing of civilians and health care workers constitutes a war crime punishable by the International Criminal Court.
