On Monday dawn, Day 94 of the Israeli onslaught on the Palestinians in the besieged, impoverished, destroyed, and devastated coastal region, the Israeli army continued the bombing and shells of homes and buildings in various parts of the Gaza Strip, killing and wounding hundreds of Palestinians, including women and children.

Israel now killed more than 22.835, including 9,600 children, and injured more than 58.416 Palestinians, mostly women, children, and elderly, in addition to about 7000 Palestinians who remain buried under the rubble of bombarded homes and buildings.

The Israeli army fired dozens of missiles and shells from lands, air, and sea, targeting various parts of the besieged, destroyed, and devastated Gaza Strip.

The Israeli strikes were mainly focused in various neighborhoods, residential blocks, especially in Gaza City, Rafah and Khan Younis in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, and in central Gaza, killing dozens of Palestinians and wounding hundreds, mostly women, children, and elders.

In Deir Al-Balah in Central Gaza, the army fired a missile at homes in the western part of the city, killing at least eighteen Palestinians, including eight in one home, and wounding dozens.

Medical sources at the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir Al-Balah said the medics transferred the corpses of the eighteen slain Palestinians and the dozens wounded in the attack to the medical center, adding that many remain buried under the rubble.

The Israeli army also fired missiles and shells at homes and buildings in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza.

In Al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, the army fired missiles at a school, run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agney (UNRWA) where dozens of families sheltered, killing more than 30 Palestinians and wounding at least fifty.

In Gaza City, the Israeli army fired many missiles and shells at homes and neighborhoods in several parts of the city, especially the Daraj and Tuffah neighborhoods, killing at least 41 Palestinians and wounding dozens.

In Jabalia, in northern Gaza, and Israeli missile struck a home for the Abu Elba family, killing more than seventy Palestinians, and wounding dozens.

In addition, an Israeli military drone fired a missile at the yard of the Gaza European Hospital, southeast of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, while an Israeli war jet fired missiles at the building of Science and Technology College, south of Khan Younis.

It is worth mentioning that areas of central Gaza, especially Deir Al-Balah, Deir Al-Balah refugee camp, and the Al-Maghazi refugee camp, have been subject to intense Israeli bombings overnight and in the early morning hours Monday, leading to dozens of casualties.

The United Nations Relief & Works Agency (UNRWA) said Israel’s bombing of Gaza killed 142 of its employees and workers, which is the highest number of casualties among its workers since its establishment.

UNRWA added that the Israeli army bombed 130 of its schools in several parts of the Gaza Strip and stated that hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are starving in Gaza, an issue that requires doubling all efforts to ensure the entry of humanitarian aid to the devastated coastal region.

Over the past 24 hours, the Israeli army killed three Palestinian journalists and injured four, in various bombings on southern Gaza, after the army killed Hamza Wa’el Dahdouh, the son of renowned Al-Jazeera Jounalist Wael Dahdouh, who in October of 2023, lost his wife, another son, his daughter and his grandson, after the army fired a missile at his home. The two other slain journalists are Mustafa Thorayya and Abdul-Rahman Abu Ajwa.

The number of slain journalists since October 7 is now 110, in addition to many members of their families.

The Israeli army killed at least 180 Palestinians in 24 hours in central Gaza, especially in Deir Al-Balah and the Al-Maghazi refugee camp.

On Sunday, the Israeli army killed at least 160 Palestinians and injured more than 250 in several parts of the Gaza Strip. Sixty of the slain Palestinians were killed in one home in the Al-Fallujah area in Jabalia, in northern Gaza.

In a statement, Save The Children said, “More than ten children per day, on average, have lost one or both of their legs in Gaza since the conflict erupted three months ago.”

“Since 7 October, more than 1,000 children have had one or both legs amputated, according to UNICEF. Many of these operations on children were done without anesthetic, with the healthcare system in Gaza crippled by the conflict, and major shortages of doctors and nurses, and medical supplies like anesthesia and antibiotics, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), it added.”

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), said the location of 600 patients who were forced by Israeli to leave the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital remains unknown.

On Sunday, the Israeli army fired missiles at the Falouja neighborhood in Jabalia, in northern Gaza, destroying the building of Abu Elbe extended family killing 80 civilians mainly children and women.

Israel Ynet News quoted Army Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi stating that the Israeli offensive on Gaza “will continue throughout the year,” and elaborated by stating, “We’ll certainly be fighting in Gaza all year, and this will also maintain alertness on other fronts, especially the West Bankز”

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Israeli missiles and shells have now killed more than 22.835, including 9,600 children, and injured more than 58.416 Palestinians, mostly women, children, and elderly, in addition to about 7000 Palestinians who remain buried under the rubble of bombarded homes and buildings.
