War on Gaza: Dozens of Palestinians killed and wounded in the bombing of various areas in Gaza Strip

On the 137th day of its aggression against the Gaza Strip, the Israeli forces continued to bomb many areas in the Strip with warplanes, artillery, and gunboats, committing several massacres, which resulted in the death and injury of dozens of citizens, most of them women and children.

According to local sources, a large number of citizens were killed and others were injured in missile and artillery shelling and gunfire from Israeli marches on the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza City.

The sources said that large Israeli military vehicles entered the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood from the Tal Al-Hawa area west of the city, and Mahmour Salah al-Din to the south, and were stationed near the intersection of Street 8 and Salah al-Din Street amid bombardment by Israeli warplanes and the firing of artillery shells that hit a number of citizens’ homes. Which led to at least 15 killed and dozens of wounded.

It added that Israeli "Capter" drones opened fire on citizens moving between the alleys and side streets in the neighborhood, pointing out that the Israeli incursion into the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood caused the forced displacement of thousands of citizens towards the western areas of Gaza City, specifically to Al-Shifa Hospital and the vicinity of the hospital in Al-Rimal neighborhood.

Israeli warplanes, artillery, and tanks launched raids and fired shells at a number of residential neighborhoods in the city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, resulting in 6 dead and 15 wounded.

The Israeli war machine continues its operations in Nasser and Al-Amal hospitals, west of the city, amid tragic conditions for the wounded, patients, and medical staff in Nasser Hospital.

In Rafah, the Israeli army bombed a number of shells in the center and west of the city, causing injuries among the displaced.

In the central Gaza Strip, Israeli warplanes bombed several homes in the Nuseirat, Bureij, and Maghazi camps, and in Deir al-Balah, killing 4 citizens and wounding about 10 others. They were transferred to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in the center of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army fired fire and shells at citizens waiting for humanitarian aid west of Gaza City.

Three citizens were killed tonight in an Israeli bombing targeting the Nuseirat camp, in the central Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli forces bombed a house in the camp, leading to the death of three citizens. They were transferred to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah.

In the same context, Israeli artillery bombed the Al-Shaaf area east of Al-Shuja'iya, while occupation gunboats bombed the coast of Gaza City.

In an infinite toll, the number of killed has risen to more than 29,092, the majority of whom are women and children, and the wounded to more than 68,883, since the start of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip on the 7th of last October.
