GAZA CITY – In a continued Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip from land, sea, and air, Israeli airstrikes have resulted in the deaths of dozens of civilians and injuries to others over the last few hours, as the Israeli aggression on the enclave enters its 37th consecutive day in a row.
WAFA correspondent reported that rescue and civil defense teams retrieved the bodies of four civilians from the Hamdan family home in the Sabra neighborhood of Gaza City, which was targeted by an Israeli missile strike at dawn.
Israeli warplanes also targeted a house belonging to Abdullah al-Adini, a local Palestinian resident in the city of Deir al Balah in the central Gaza Strip, resulting in the murder of three civilians and the injury of dozens, with some still missing under the rubble.
Meantime, at least 10 civilians were murdered and more than 20 others were injured in an Israeli airstrike targeting the Najjar family’s house east of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza, the region that Israel claims to be a safe zone.
Meanwhile, three infants and five critically ill patients in the Shifa Medical Complex died this morning due to oxygen shortage, while others are on the verge of death due to the continuous Israeli siege since yesterday.
WAFA correspondent confirmed that five infants have died in less than 48 hours due to the cessation of medical services at the Shifa Complex, as the power outage persists for the third consecutive day amid a suffocating Israeli siege, with tanks surrounding the hospital from all directions.
He pointed out that Israeli tanks are currently stationed outside the maternity ward of the Shifa Complex, and that Israeli artillery have targeted the intensive care unit, resulting in multiple injuries.
Dozens of dead bodies remain across the compound and in its surroundings, and rescue teams have been unable to reach them for evacuation due to the intensity of the Israeli bombardment and gunfire targeting anyone moving.
