Fatalities reported in Gaza’s south after Israeli raid targets a house sheltering people who had been displaced from the north.

At least two people were killed following an Israeli air raid on a residential building in ash-Shoka, Rafah City, according to Al Jazeera correspondents.

Some victims remain under the rubble and in the streets, as the occupation forces continue to prevent the arrival of ambulance and rescue teams. Therefore, the actual figures are believed to be much higher.

Meantime, a Palestinian was killed and others injured this morning as Israeli airstrikes targeted a house belonging to the Abu Laila family in the town of Shawka, east of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, without prior warning.

Simultaneously, three Palestinians, including a child, were killed and others injured in the Israeli artillery shelling of a school housing displaced people in Hamad City, located northwest of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip.

Israeli tanks and bulldozers further broke into the town of Al-Qarara north of Khan Yunis amid intensive artillery shelling of the town.

Meantime, five Palestinians were killed and three others injured in the Israeli shelling of a group of citizens in the Al-Maslaba area east of the Zaytoun neighborhood in Gaza City.

Concurrently, ambulance and rescue teams retrieved the bodies of dozens of martyrs from the Naeem family after the withdrawal of Israeli forces from the Zaytoun neighborhood southeast of Gaza City.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society stated that the Israeli occupation forces continue to target residential neighborhoods, and that its teams are trying to provide medical aid as much as possible.

It called for the establishment of field hospitals and the dispatch of international medical delegations due to the collapse of the healthcare services across the war-torn enclave.

Local sources confirmed that Israeli occupation forces targeted a populated house belonging to the Al-Qurainawi family in the camp, leading to the killing of at least four Palestinians and injuring others.

According to Israeli government 1,139 Israelis were killed by Hamas on 7 October in southern Israel and 134 Israelis and foreign nationals are still detained by Hamas in Gaza.

Seven Israeli hostages were killed in Gaza by Israeli bombing according Qassim Brigade. It was not immediately clear when the seven died. Several captives have been killed as a result of Israeli attacks in Gaza, including three who were shot by Israeli forces.
