Following an extremely violent morning on Saturday — day 274 of Israel’s assault on Gaza — in which Israeli forces bombarded a United Nations warehouse containing supplies to be distributed to starving Palestinians (killing 9) and bombed civilians in refugee camps and in eastern Gaza City, the attacks did not stop in the afternoon, evening or night, but continued without cease.

In the evening on Saturday, the Israeli airforce dropped bombs on a United Nations School sheltering refugees displaced from other parts of Gaza, killing at least 16, mostly children. At least 50 were wounded, some of whom lost limbs. The horrific scenes of family members covered in dust carrying mutilated bodies of children were captured by eyewitnesses in Nusseirat refugee camp:


The Al-Jaouni School, which was targeted, was bombed for the third time since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7th.

Speaker of the Palestinian National Council, Rawhi Fattouh, condemned the massacre carried out by the Israeli occupation air force on a school housing displaced persons in Nuseirat, central Gaza Strip.

Fattouh said in a statement on Saturday evening that the massacre committed by the Israeli occupation army in bombing the Al-Jaouni School, affiliated with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), s a continuation of the ongoing war of extermination and ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people. The school has been a place of shelter and refuge for thousands of displaced, defenseless civilians, and the Israeli bombardment on Saturday afternoon led to the killing of at least 15 civilians, most of whom were children.

Also Saturday evening, Israeli occupation forces fired smoke bombs intensively around the Shuja’iyya intersection with Baghdad Street, east of Gaza City.

A Palestinian was killed and others were injured in a raid by warplanes that targeted a group of citizens in the Al-Sikka area, east of Jabalia, in the northern Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian was also killed and another was injured in the occupation’s bombing of the vicinity of Al-Abrar Mosque in Al-Zeitoun neighborhood in Gaza .

The Israeli occupation artillery targeted the east of the power plant and the north of Al-Bureij camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Ambulance and rescue crews recovered the bodies of 7, including two women, from the city of Rafah, and transferred them to Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

Also, the Israeli occupation forces blew up several buildings west of Rafah city.

A number of Palestinians were killed and several others were injured, on Saturday, when Israeli warplanes bombed a house north of Gaza City.

Eyewitnesses reported that a number of civilians were killed and others were injured, after the occupation bombed a house belonging to the Sahweil family in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in northern Gaza.

The Israeli occupation forces have continued their aggression on the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, which resulted in the killing of at least 38,098 Palestinians and the injury of 87,705 others, while thousands of victims are still under the rubble and on the roads, where ambulance and civil defense crews cannot reach them.

Day 274: “Dozens Killed, Injured, As Israel Continues To Bomb Gaza”

Published on: Jul 6, 2024 at 10:29

On Saturday, Day 274 of the ongoing genocide of the Palestinians in the destroyed, besieged, and devastated Gaza Strip, the Israeli army fired dozens of missiles and shells at various parts of the coastal enclave, killing and wounding dozens of Palestinians, including many children and women.

Media sources said the army has killed and injured dozens of residents, including children, women, and elderly, in the first few hours of Saturday.

Medical sources said the army fired missiles and shells at homes and a UNRWA warehouse in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp and the Nusseirat refugee camp, in central Gaza, killing at least nine Palestinians, and wounding many others.

The army also killed two Palestinians, including one UNRWA worker, after firing a missile at a car in front of a UNRWA center in the refugee camp.

The army also fired a missile at a home in Gaza City, killing at least two Palestinians and wounding several others.

In addition, the army fired a missile at a home for the Khatib family, in the Nusseirat refugee camp, killing three Palestinian children and wounding many residents.

Shortly after the initial attack, the army fired a missile at a home for the Abu Shakyan family, killing eleven Palestinians from the same family.

The slain Palestinians were identified as Yousef Abul-Rahim Jahjouh, Amjad Abul-Rahim Jahjouh, Amjad’s wife and there three children, Ahmad Abul-Rahim Jahjouh, Mohammad Abul-Rahim Jahjouh, Farah Abdul-Rahim Jahjouh, Ala’ Abdul-Rahim Jahjouh and Ammar Abdul-Rahim Jahjouh.

In Deir Al-Balah, in central Gaza, two siblings were killed, and many Palestinians were injured when the army fired a missile at a home in the Wadi As-Salqa area.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army continued its extensive invasion, the wiring and detonation of homes and buildings, in the eastern areas of the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, in Gaza City.

In addition, an Israeli quadcopter fired live rounds at Palestinians near the Sheja’eyya junction, while the residents were looking for shelter, food, and water.

The army also fired a missile at a home near the Al-Hurriya Schools where dozens of families sheltered in the Zeitoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza City.

In Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, the army fired a missile at a shop in the Ma’en area, in the eastern part of the city, killing six Palestinians and wounding many others.

In Rafah, in Gaza’s southmost part, the army continued the massive ground offensive, and the detonation of homes and buildings for the sixtieth day, while more tanks and armored vehicles advanced into the Nasr neighborhood, in the eastern part of the city.

Furthermore, Palestinian medics and rescue teams located the bodies of ten Palestinians under the rubble of bombarded homes and buildings, that were targeted in earlier Israeli attacks in the western part of the city.

Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor said there are more than 10.000 Palestinians who remain under the rubble in several parts of the Gaza Strip, especially due to the lack of equipment, especially heavy machinery, to remove the rubble and look for them, in addition to the absence of international efforts to locate them.

It added that the Civil Defense and rescue teams across the Gaza Strip lack essential equipment due to the ongoing bombing and the deadly siege, while Israel continues to prevent the entry of any equipment into the Gaza Strip.

It is worth mentioning that Doctors Without Borders said the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis, is at a “breaking point,” and is at risk of being overwhelmed due to a serious increase in Israeli attacks.”

On his part, Philippe Lazzarini, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), said the people in the Gaza Strip are in a survival mode due to the ongoing cycle of displacement of civilians, and called for stopping the despair the people face.

Al-Jazeera English has reported that the United Nations stated that “nine in every 10 people in Gaza are internally displaced” due to the ongoing Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

It added that the UN estimates that 250.000 Palestinians in the eastern areas of Khan Younis and Rafah are now under direct Israeli military evacuation orders, which precede a ground invasion.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that the shortages of fuel in the Gaza Strip pose serious risks to the life-saving services at all hospitals in the Gaza Strip, in addition to the serious impacts on water and sanitation infrastructure.

OCHA added that the displaced Palestinians in the Jabalia refugee camp, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, face extremely difficult conditions, including serious shortages in water, food, and shelter.

Israel has now killed at least 38.011 Palestinians, including at least 15.919 children and 10.519 women, and injured more than 87.445, mostly children, women, and elderly, in addition to the thousands (approximately 10.000) who remain missing, largely buried under the rubble of bombarded homes and buildings, on streets and destroyed alleys, across the coastal enclave, since October 7, 2023.
