On Monday dawn, Day 108 of Israel’s onslaught on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Israeli missiles and shells killed dozens of Palestinians, mainly women and children, and injured many more in several parts of the coastal enclave.

The Israeli army mainly concentrated its bombing and shelling on various parts of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, targeting homes and residential buildings, schools, and various coastal areas, killing more than twenty Palestinians and wounding dozens.

Medical sources said at least twelve Palestinians were killed and dozens were injured in Khan Younis and added that most of the slain and the wounded are children.

The Israeli missiles also killed three Palestinians and injured many more in the Al-Mawasi coastal area, west of Khan Younis.

In addition, the army fired missiles at an apartment in a residential area in the Namsawi neighborhood near Nasser Medical Center, west of Khan Younis, before the air force and the ground forced fired barrages of shells and missiles at the southern and western neighborhoods near the medical center.

Also in Khan Younis, the army fired artillery shells at the Al-Mawasi School, west of the city, where dozens of families from various parts of the Gaza Strip sheltered, killing many Palestinians and wounding dozens.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said it has been trying to reach the bombarded school, after receiving calls regarding dozens of casualties, but the Israeli soldiers are surrounding the area and are preventing the ambulances from reaching it and are using drones to fire at ambulances.

Mohammad Abu Musleh, the spokesperson of the PRCS and the head of the Emergency Department in the Gaza Strip, told Al-Jazeera that the PRCS contacted the Red Cross to try to receive a permit from the army to enter the bombarded school for more than two hours, but the army continues to deny the request.

He stated that the Israeli army has killed more than nine of its medics and twelve volunteers and injured more than 30 medics.

Mohammad added that Israeli drones are constantly targeting ambulances and medics in Khan Younis, and several parts of the Gaza Strip.

The soldiers also fired many shells around the Al-Aqsa University, west of Khan Younis, where dozens of families are sheltering.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said it lost contact with all its teams in Khan Younis due to ongoing Israeli bombings. The statement came after Israeli tanks invaded the area of Al-Amal Hospital, which runs in the city.

The army also surrounded Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis from three directions; the medical facility is only one kilometer from Al-Amal Hospital.

The Israeli army continued to advance into the center of Khan Younis, an issue that would mean isolating the western parts of the city from its eastern parts, which could also cut all access between the northern and the southern parts of the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, the Israeli fired many missiles and shells into all eastern areas between Khan Younis and Rafah in southern Gaza.

It is worth mentioning that Israeli Quadcopter military drones fired barrages of live rounds at Palestinians fleeing their homes in several areas of Khan Younis, especially in the Al-Mawasi area and Nasser Medical Center.

Furthermore, the army fired dozens of missiles and shells at homes and buildings east of the Tuffah and the Daraj neighborhoods and all western areas of Gaza City.

The Qatar-based Al-Jazeera said for many hours, the army fired barrages of missiles and shells amidst exchanges of fire with Palestinian fighters in Khan Younis and added that the bombing is the most intense since the beginning of the Israeli offense on Gaza.

In addition, the army fired barrages of missiles and shells at homes and buildings in Gaza City, Jabalia in northern Gaza, and Al-Maghazi in central Gaza amidst intense gun battles with Palestinian resistance fighters.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he, for many years, has been working to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and will never allow this state to be established.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has reported that at least 25.105 Palestinians have been killed (%70 are women and children), and more than 62.681 have been injured in the Gaza Strip since October 7. 2023.

Thousands remain missing, mostly buried under the rubble of bombarded homes and buildings, and hundreds are on the streets as the medics and rescue teams have been unable to reach them due to ongoing bombing and massive destruction of infrastructure.

As of 1/22/2024, Israeli bombardment continues for 106th day.
