Gaza hospitals said 256 people, including 20 children, were killed in addition to 1,788 injured in less than 24 hours.
WAFA correspondent said that the occupation warplanes launched a series of raids on the northern and western areas of Gaza City, targeting homes, the vicinity of some hospitals, and residential towers.
The raids were concentrated in the Tal al-Hawa neighborhood and the Red Crescent’s al-Quds Hospital where hundreds of families took refuge seeking protection from the Israeli bombing.
The warplanes also targeted al-Rimal neighborhood, the vicinity of Shati refugee camp, and the areas of the Intelligence Towers, al-Karama, and al-Fayrouz areas, destroying dozens of homes and residential buildings.
Dozens of missiles also hit the Sudaniya and al-Wahah areas and the western and northern regions of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip under the scorched earth policy.
The occupation aircraft targeted a number of homes in Khan Younis, in the west and east of the city where hundreds of families who were forcibly displaced from the northern Gaza Strip took refuge.
The city of Rafah, to the south of the Gaza Strip, was also subjected to dozens of airstrikes, most of which targeted homes, causing deaths and casualties.
WAFA correspondent said Nasser and Abu Yousef al-Najjar hospitals in the south of the Gaza Strip are no longer able to deal with the wounded after they were damaged by the bombing.
He pointed out that rescue teams and paramedics are facing extreme difficulties in removing the rubble of homes and buildings as they search for survivors under the rubble.
The Ministry of Health said Friday the number of Palestinians killed in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank had risen to 1,951 since the beginning of the aggression last Saturday.
It said 1,900 were killed in the Gaza Strip, including 614 children and 370 women, while the number of wounded reached 7,696.
In the West Bank, the number killed rose to 51, after 16 people, including children, were killed yesterday, while the number of wounded rose to more than 950.
