On Tuesday, the Israeli army continued its bombing of various densely populated areas in the Gaza Strip, killing at least 120 Palestinians, mainly women and children, and wounding dozens, some seriously.

Update: The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said Ayman Nofal, a member of its “General Military Council” and the leaders of its “Central Gaza Wing” had been assassinated when the army bombarded the Al-Boreij refugee camp.

Updated: The army fired a missile at the Lamadani family home in Khan Younis, in southern Gaza, killing at least 40 Palestinians and injuring dozens.

Most of the casualties fled their homes in northern Gaza due to the intensity of the Israeli bombing, especially after the Israeli army ordered northern Gaza Strip residents to leave and head to the central and southern parts of the Gaza Strip but attacked them with missiles in Gaza City, central Gaza, and the southern parts.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said the army fired missiles at a five-story home for the Zo’rob family in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, killing 28 Palestinians, mainly women and children, and wounding dozens.

WAFA added that the army also fired a missile at a home in the “Japanese Neighborhood” in the western part of Khan Younis, killing ten Palestinians, including children, and wounding many Palestinians who took shelter in a nearby hospital after fleeing their homes in northern Gaza.

Also, the army fired a missile at a home in the “Dutch Neighborhood” west of Khan Younis, killing and wounding several Palestinians, including women and children.

At least six Palestinians were killed and many injured after the army bombed a home in the “European Neighborhood,” east of Khan Younis.

Furthermore, the army fired missiles at many homes, apartment buildings, and commercial buildings in Gaza City, killing and wounding many Palestinians.

Many Palestinians were killed and injured by Israeli missiles targeting a home for the Siyam family in the Nasr neighborhood, west of Gaza City, and another home for the Al-Zrai’y in Deir Al-Balah, in central Gaza.

After the Israeli army ordered the Palestinians in northern Gaza to leave their homes and towns and head to the central and the southern parts of the Gaza Strip, the army targeted the fleeing families, in addition to many residential buildings, medical facilities, media center, and various public and private properties.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital, the only medical center that provides treatment for cancer and tumors, had to shut down most of its clinics due to the lack of fuel and will be completely shutting down in 48 hours at most.

Earlier Tuesday, the Health Ministry said Israeli missiles and shells have killed at least 2778 Palestinians and injured at least 10,000; the Health Ministry said %64 of the slain Palestinians are women and children (936 women and 853 children), in addition to 37 medics, doctors, and health workers, in addition to at least sixteen journalists.

Israeli missiles have destroyed 3731 residential buildings, containing 105000 residential units, and caused partial damage to 10,000 units, including 7100 that were rendered structurally unsafe.

The Israeli missiles also destroyed 18 Palestinian schools and caused damage to 150, in addition to killing hundreds of children and teachers.

On Monday night, Israeli missiles killed many Palestinians, including a journalist, women, and children, in the Gaza Strip.

In the West Bank, Israeli soldiers killed, on Tuesday dawn, a 70-year-old man in Nablus and a Palestinian teenage boy in Halhoul town, north of Hebron, and in the occupied West Bank’s southern and northern parts.

On Monday evening, Israeli soldiers killed Anas Raed Manasra, 19, near the Annexation Wall west of Jenin in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

On Monday morning, medical sources confirmed the death of Rami Bilal Hassan, 33, whom Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured last Friday near Tulkarem, in the northwestern West Bank.

Mohammad’s death brings the number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army and paramilitary colonizers in the West Bank since November 7th to sixty-one.
