Israel Bombs Southern Gaza

Amid increasing international calls for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, where starvation looms, Israel conducted extensive overnight bombings in the southern Gaza Strip.

A fireball lighted up the night sky over the southern city of Rafah. Approximately 1.5 million people reside in the region; many of them have fled southward towards the Egyptian border.

Early on Wednesday, the Gaza Health Ministry reported that 66 people had died during the previous night. Three of them were a result of Israeli airstrikes in and around Rafah.

Two days after the UN Security Council adopted its first resolution demanding an “immediate ceasefire”, the combat continued unabatedly.

According to the health ministry, an Israeli strike on a camp for the displaced resulted in the deaths of twelve individuals, including young children. Besides, Israeli soldiers have reportedly encircled two hospitals in Khan Yunis.

Moreover, six more people were reportedly murdered in stampedes while attempting to get supplies. This is according to Hamas and the Swiss-based Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor.

Hamas has also demanded that Israel allow more aid trucks to enter the territory, which the United Nations has warned is on the brink of a “man-made famine” after nearly six months of fighting.

Besides, the conflict has decimated Gaza’s infrastructure, and according to relief agencies and all 2.4 million people now need humanitarian aid.

UNICEF stated that to avert a “imminent famine,” more supplies has to be sent by road rather than by air or sea. The blockaded Gaza Strip urgently requires assistance, and the US has stated that it will keep ongoing airdrop operations.

Now the war is about to enter its sixth month. The impact of war in the Gaza Strip is devastating, with widespread humanitarian crises unfolding amid the conflict.

The majority of victims of violence are civilians, especially women and children, who live in constant fear of harm, displacement, and even death.

The infrastructure damage, including schools, hospitals, and residential buildings, worsens the dire living conditions for the population. Additionally, severely restricting access to basic amenities like food, water, and medical care worsens the region’s situation. Residents experience severe psychological effects, with trauma and terror ingraining day-to-day existence.
