Gaza: 125 Palestinians killed, 318 injured by Israeli indiscriminate bombing

Palestine (Wafa, AA, Al Jazeera):

At least 125 Palestinians have been killed and 318 injured in 24 hours between Wednesday and Thursday, according to Gaza’s Ministry of Health.

In a preliminary toll, the ongoing Israeli indiscriminate bombing on the Gaza Strip for the 91st includes 22,438 Palestinians killed, including 9,600 children, 6,750 women and 57,614 injured; 7,000 Palestinians still missing, according to Gaza Ministry of Health.

For the past hour or so, there has been an intensive military campaign in central Gaza, reports Al Jazeera.

There is heavy bombardment near Deir el-Balah, including at the Nuseirat, al-Maghazi, and Bureij refugee camps.

The bombing surge seems to be an attempt to force the remaining residents of the area to evacuate.

These attacks – along with overnight artillery shelling and air strikes in the central area – have killed over 20 people and destroyed many of the remaining high-rise buildings.

At the same time, the Israeli military is pushing deeper into Khan Younis, particularly the southeast. There are reports of more than 10 people killed there. aljazeera
