S.K | DOP -

Israeli occupation warplanes have been attacking the besieged Gaza Strip for the fifth day in a row, killing 33 Palestinians and injuring 147 others.

Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that Israeli airstrikes killed 33 Palestinians including 6 children, 4 women, and 2 elderly Palestinians.

Ministry added that 147 Palestinians including 24 children, 13 women, and 3 elderly Palestinians were injured during the ongoing Israeli military assault on Gaza.

Israeli warplanes bombed and completely destroyed 51 Palestinian housing units and partially damaged 840 housing units of which 49 are inhabitable.

More than 50 Israeli Warplanes have bombed the besieged Gaza strip since Tuesday night, May 9, 2023, according to the Radio of the Israeli occupation forces.

For the fifth consecutive day, both Israeli-controlled crossings, Erez (for people) and Kerem Shalom (for goods), are closed.

The closure is preventing the access of hundreds of people to and from Gaza, including patients and workers, among them aid workers, and preventing the entry of truckloads of goods a day carrying vital items such as food, medical supplies, and fuel. 

According to MOH in Gaza, the closure has prevented 432 patients and companions from traveling to receive treatment in Palestinian or Israeli hospitals outside.

MoH in Gaza stated that 27 of those patients were in need of critical life-saving intervention.

Due to the closure, the available fuel for the operation of the Gaza Power Plant is being depleted, forcing a reduction in electricity production. This has reduced power supply to between 12 and 14 hours per day, seriously undermining the provision of services, including health, water, and sanitation.

Israeli occupation continues its systematic policy which targets residential buildings and densely populated neighborhoods. The Israeli regime disregards international humanitarian laws and takes advantage of the international community’s failure to hold it accountable for its violations.
