In a relentless display of violence, the Israeli occupation forces have embarked on their 125th consecutive day of genocide in the Gaza Strip. Air strikes, artillery shelling, and fire belts have become the norm, leading to horrifying massacres against innocent civilians and the perpetration of unspeakable crimes. The situation has reached catastrophic levels, with over 90% of the population displaced and a humanitarian crisis looming over the region.

Tragedy struck Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, as two martyrs, Iyad Atiya Qweider and Ahmed Radi Abu Ta’imah, fell victim to occupation sniper bullets in the nearby vicinity. Additionally, the lifeless bodies of five martyrs were recovered after the occupation forces intentionally targeted the Hajj Ahmed family’s residence in the Maghazi camp, located in the central Gaza Strip.

The occupation aircraft launched a series of raids early this morning on Rafah. The Civil Defense reported rescuing multiple martyrs and treating wounded individuals from the Fahjan and Al-Mughir families, after the Israeli occupation aircraft relentlessly attacked their homes in the densely populated and displaced Tal Al-Sultan neighborhood. Yet another heartwrenching incident occurred just before midnight, as local sources revealed that the Fahjan family’s house was mercilessly bombed, claiming the lives of 11 martyrs, including children, who had sought refuge from Khan Yunis, Deir al-Balah, and al-Maghazi.
Furthermore, Israeli occupation artillery fiercely bombarded neighborhoods southwest of Khan Yunis, triggering clashes near Abu Mazen roundabout, west of Gaza City. The clashes soon spilled onto Al-Sinaa Street and the intersection, exacerbating the already dire situation in Gaza City.
In a separate attack, the occupation aircraft launched air strikes in the northern parts of the Gaza Strip. Nafez Abdel Jawad, a journalist for Palestine TV, and his only son tragically lost their lives when the occupation targeted their residence in Deir al-Balah. Meanwhile, raids were also carried out on the Saudi neighborhood, situated west of Rafah.
The death toll from the Israeli military aggression on the Gaza Strip has reached a staggering 27,708 martyrs, with 67,147 people left with varying injuries, some severe and critical.
Within the past 24 hours alone, the occupation forces have committed 16 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip, resulting in the heartbreaking loss of 123 martyrs and 169 injuries.
Since October 7th of last year, the Israeli occupation army, backed by support from America and Europe, has continued its relentless aggression against the Gaza Strip. The occupation planes spare no mercy, bombing hospitals, buildings, towers, and the homes of innocent Palestinian civilians, turning their lives into tragic tales of destruction and despair.
