Gaza: 16 Palestinians killed, several injured in Israeli strikes in Gaza

(Agencies): Multiple areas of the Gaza Strip witnessed a series of airstrikes by warplanes and drones, accompanied by artillery shelling, causing immense damage.

Monday evening, seven civilians were killed and others injured in an Israeli strike which pounded two houses in Deir al-Balah. Nine civilians also lost their lives and dozens were injured in Khan Yunis due to Israeli airstrikes, according to Wafa news agency.

According to Gaza Health Ministry, 21,978 Palestinians were killed, including 9,100 children, 6,500 women, and 57,697 injured by Israeli’s indiscriminate bombing and 7,000 missing since October 7.

The central Gaza Strip, particularly the northern region of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, experienced Israeli artillery bombardment, while naval forces heavily targeted other areas in the central governorate of Gaza.

In the south, Israeli airstrikes struck fiercely in the central and eastern areas of Khan Yunis, with artillery shelling hitting the northern neighborhoods of the city, resulting in civilian casualties, including children and women.

Intense clashes erupted in the northern Gaza regions where Israeli tanks are advancing, coinciding with continuous aerial and artillery bombardment by the Israeli occupation forces.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army on Tuesday killed five Palestinians near the city of Qalqilya in the occupied northern West Bank.

The Palestinian official news agency Wafa said the four Palestinians were “shot dead during confrontations” that erupted as Israeli forces stormed the town of Azzun.

Witnesses told Anadolu Agency that the Israeli army withdrew from the town after clashing with the Palestinians for a few hours.

The Israeli army also raided and searched several homes and shops in the town, the witnesses added.

Several Palestinians were also injured and arrested from a building in Azzun.

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 324 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank since Oct. 7, with over 3,400 others injured.
