Gaza Siege: Israel strikes 320 targets, killing over 400 Palestinians on Sunday

By Osman

London, (The Muslim News): More than 400 Palestinians were killed from intensified Israeli indiscriminate attacks on the Gaza Strip on Sunday, taking the tally of Palestinian deaths in the besieged enclave to 4,651, including 1,873 children and 1,023 women, and injuring 14,245.

The spike in deaths comes as Israel confirms it struck 320 targets in 24 hours, strikes that the Palestinian authorities say targeted homes “without warning” and whose victims were mainly women, children, and the elderly (70%).

The strikes were centred in the Gaza Strip’s north in Jabalya and Beit Lahiya, west in the Al-Gusta and Al-Rimal areas and Al-Shati refugee camp, and south in Khan Younis and Rafah.

“Occupation warplanes launched several raids on two houses in the Al-Tirnis area of the Jabaliya camp and the Albanian mosque in the camp in the north of the Gaza Strip, causing 20 deaths, while dozens are still under the rubble,” reported WAFA, the Palestinian news agency.

Multiple Israeli attacks were reported near Al-Shifa Medical Complex in central Gaza and near Al-Quds Hospital in the Tel al-Hawa neighbourhood west of Gaza, which was targeted for the second time.

The Palestinian agency said “the occupation aircraft conducted at least 25 massacres on Sunday” by directly targeting homes without prior evacuation warnings.

Warplanes and artillery forces stationed near the eastern border of the Gaza Strip participated simultaneously in the intensified attack.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that “the massacres of the occupation completely demolished residential neighbourhoods and wiped them off the map of the Gaza Strip, turning them into rubble on top of each other. Some families are completely removed from the civil register in a number of areas and refugee camps on the Strip.”
