The extermination war waged by the Israeli occupation on the Gaza Strip continues for the 99th day, resulting in the death and injury of thousands of civilians and the displacement of hundreds of thousands whose homes were levelled to the ground in the north of the Strip.
Today at dawn, dozens of Palestinian citizens were killed and injured, as civil defence crews recovered the bodies of 20 dead, including children and women, after the occupation bombed a house in the Daraj neighbourhood in Gaza City.
In the morning, 3 Palestinians were killed, and others were injured, in an Israeli march bombing of the town of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip.
A number of wounded arrived at Nasser Hospital, die to a violent artillery shelling in the centre and south of Khan Yunis.
The occupation aircraft launched a fire belt on Qazan Al-Najjar and Al-Batn Al-Samin in the southeastern areas of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.
The occupation aircraft targeted several homes in Al-Dawa neighbourhood, north of Al-Nuseirat, in the middle of the Gaza Strip, killing dozens and wounding others, while others are still missing people under the rubble.
Intense Israeli bombardment also targeted Deir Al-Balah, Nuseirat, Al-Maghazi, and the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in the central Gaza Strip.
Complete interruption of communications and Internet services in the Gaza Strip continued for the second time due to the ongoing aggression.
More than 80 percent of the communications sector in Gaza suffers from continuous targeting, and technical crews are also being subjected to direct targeting while carrying out their work, despite prior coordination with international institutions.
It is worth mentioning that this is at least the seventh time that communications with the Gaza Strip have been completely cut off since the start of the aggression on October 7, 2023, where the lines, networks and transmission towers were damaged due to the massive destruction to the infrastructure, and the lack of fuel due to the siege, which resulted in frequent outages, pressure on the network, and weak transmission in various parts of the sector.
The disruption of communications and the Internet increases in parallel with the increased massacres committed by the occupation forces against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and it also disrupts efforts to rescue and treat citizens.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society also announced a complete loss of communication with its crews working in the Gaza Strip due to the Israeli occupation cutting off communications and internet services, which increases the challenges facing its crews in providing their ambulance services and reaching the injured as quickly as possible.
Since the start of the aggression on Gaza on October 7, more than 23,708 Palestinians were killed, 60,005 were wounded, and thousands of people remain missing.
The occupation’s massacres in the Gaza Strip have not stopped since the beginning of the aggression, where schools, hospitals, educational institutions, mosques, and public and private property have been the focus of Israeli targeting.
The Israeli occupation has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip for the 99th day, which resulted in catastrophic humanitarian and health conditions, due to the continuous bombing and the prevention of supplies of food, water, medicine, and electricity.
The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip constitutes a blatant violation of international humanitarian law and human rights, as it exposes the lives and property of civilians to extreme danger, and great suffering. The international community thus is required to urgently intervene to stop the aggression and protect civilians in the Gaza Strip.
