Israeli occupation warplanes carried out hundreds of airstrikes across the Gaza Strip, targeting military installations, residential buildings, and vital civilian infrastructure.
Iyad al-Bozom, a spokesman for Gaza’s Interior Ministry, said in a statement that the relentless assault left widespread devastation in its wake.
Palestinian Resistance Strikes Back
In the early hours of Saturday, Palestinian resistance factions launched projectiles at Israeli settlements and conducted daring raids on multiple Israeli settlements.
These retaliatory actions resulted in the capture of several Israeli settlers and soldiers, with Israeli sources reporting around 35 individuals in captivity.
The resistance movements said that these actions as a response to the ongoing Israeli aggression, specifically citing provocations at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the plight of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention.
The resistance has repeatedly warned against Israeli violations, expressing deep concern over their disregard for these warnings and the continued suffering of the Palestinian people.
In a shocking incident, Israeli warplanes targeted a Palestinian ambulance near Khan Younis’ Nasser Hospital in the southern Gaza Strip during the afternoon. This tragic attack claimed the life of at least one Palestinian medic, while several others sustained severe injuries.
Escalating Casualty Count
As the situation escalates, Palestinian medical sources have reported a rising casualty count, with the death toll now standing at 198 individuals, a number that includes journalists and medical personnel.
The situation in Gaza remains dire, subjecting the Palestinian population to unspeakable suffering, terror, and a tragic loss of life.
