Gaza: 86 Palestinians killed, 131 wounded by Israeli bombardments last 24 hours

Gaza City, (Al Jazeera, Wafa): Israeli bombardments in Gaza killed 86 Palestinians, injured 131 in the last 24 hours. Since 7 October, at least 29,692 Palestinians were killed, including 12,300 children and 69,879 wounded, including 8,663 children by indiscriminate bombing by Israeli Defence Forces in Gaza Strip. 8,500 Palestinians are missing.

A two-month-old Palestinian baby has died from starvation in northern Gaza, according to media reports, as Israel is accused of using starvation as a weapon of war.

Three Palestinians were killed by Israeli shelling in the Sabra neighbourhood of Gaza City.

Palestinians are also reported to have been killed in Khan Younis and Beit Lahiya in the latest round of Israeli attacks.

Photos and testimonies have documented the Israeli army’s targeting of two Palestinian sisters while they were searching for food inside agricultural land in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.

The attack killed Hadeel Aghlais, whose body was transported on a towed cart. Her sister, Iman Aghlais, survived.

A child described that Hadeel was shot twice, in the heart and jaw, and noted that hunger forced the sisters to go to a dangerous area in order to get food.

“Even the donkey was injured, we are not guilty of all this, we want a solution,” the child, who witnessed the shooting, said.
n Beit Lahiya, a home was targeted while evacuees were inside. Four people were reportedly killed, while others were injured.

There are a few who are still trapped under the rubble and civil defence crew are struggling to rescue them. Without proper equipment, the rescuers must use their bare hands to remove large pieces of concrete and to lift people from under the wreckage. There is hope that they will get to the wounded there before it is too late.

Still, there is a risk of them losing their lives without immediate medical intervention and health facilities in the north are totally nonoperational right now.

The Wafa news agency reports that dozens of Palestinians, including many women and children, have been killed in the latest round of Israeli attacks.

The latest killings were reported from: Western part of Khan Younis, Sabra neighbourhood of Gaza City, Shaaf area east of Gaza City, Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza.
