Throughout the morning, afternoon and evening on Saturday, day 203 of Israel’s onslaught on Gaza, Israeli bombardment in north, central and southern Gaza continued. On Saturday afternoon, the Israeli army fired a missile at a group of Palestinians near Wadi Gaza area, north of the Nusseirat refugee camp, in central Gaza, killing at least three and wounding many others.

The Palestinian Health Ministry warned of a serious outbreak of diseases and skin conditions, especially due to the accumulation of waste and swage between the tents of the displaced Palestinians, and the serious increase of reptiles and insects amidst the rising temperatures.

Day 204: Genocide Continues In Gaza, Israel Kills Dozens

Published on: Apr 27, 2024 at 13:02

On Saturday, Day 204 of the ongoing Israeli genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, the army continued the bombing of various parts of the coastal enclave, killing and wounding dozens of Palestinians, including children and women.

In the Nusseirat refugee camp, in central Gaza, the army fired missiles at two homes, killing at least eight Palestinians, including women and children, and wounding dozens.

Medical sources said the army fired a missile at a home in the Sultan neighborhood in Nusseirat, killing four Palestinians, including a newborn girl, who were all severely mutilated, and wounding many Palestinians, mostly women and children.

The sources added that the army also fired a missile at another home in the refugee camp, killing four Palestinians and wounding at least thirty, mostly women and children.

The army also bombarded and shelled various parts of central Gaza, especially the Al-Mughraqa area, causing many casualties.

In Gaza City, the army fired barrages of missiles and shells at several parts of the city, especially the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, destroying at least three homes and causing many casualties.

Also, Israeli navy ships fired dozens of live rounds at displaced Palestinians who sought shelter at the coast of Gaza City.

The Mayor of Beit Lahia, Ala’ Al-Attar, said the Israeli army has destroyed more than %70 of the water wells and %50 of sanitation pumps, in the city, in addition to the destruction of homes and buildings due to constant bombing of the civilian areas.

In Rafah, in Gaza’s southmost part, the army fired missiles at a home in the city, killing at least six Palestinians, including children, and wounding dozens, some seriously.

The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics said, that by April 22, the number of Palestinians in Rafah, which is only 63.1 Kilometers, has reached at least 1.1 million, an issue that is also impacting all health and humanitarian services amidst constant Israeli bombings, the lack of medical supplies, food and sanitation.

Rafah is the last area the Palestinians can escape to, but Israel keeps bombing it to force them to leave the coastal region into the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula.

On Friday, the Israeli army murdered a journalist Ibrahim Al-Gharbawi while he was reporting from Hamad city in Khan Younis, bringing the number of slain journalists and media workers to 140.

UNRWA said “The Living conditions in Gaza continue to rapidly deteriorate. Rising temperatures & water scarcity in Rafah, where 1.2 million people shelter, are heightening disease risks. Humanitarians need further support & unimpeded access to alleviate suffering & save lives.”

Also, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that a baby girl has died in Rafah, amidst increasing concerns over the devastated sanitation condition and the rising of temperature.

Israel has now killed at least 34.356 Palestinians, mostly women, and children, and injured more than 77.368, in addition to the thousands of slain Palestinians who remain under the rubble and on streets, in several parts of the destroyed Gaza Strip, since October 7, 2023.

At least 27 people, including six women and five children, were killed on Monday in Israeli air strikes on Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, according to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry.

The ministry added that there has been a sharp increase in infectious diseases in the refugee camps across the Strip, and that the severe heat and limited access to drinking water have made the conditions worse. According to the ministry's data, 34,488 Gazans have died since the beginning of the war.

Sources in Gaza emphasize that access to clean drinking water is becoming more and more limited for many of the citizens. "We are nearing the summer months, and those who won't die from the strikes will die from disease and infections," a medical source told Haaretz.

"The war is not only bombings and shootings, it's a destruction of infrastructure in every sector," he continued, saying the destruction "immediately affects public health."

So far, 150,000 Gazans have left Rafah, heading in the direction of Khan Yunis and Al-Mawasi, west of the city. According to IDF estimations, the evacuation of Rafah, which currently houses more than one million Gazans, will take weeks. Only when it is completed, military forces can enter the area.

On Sunday, IDF spokesman Brig. Gen. Daniel Hagari said that the amount of humanitarian aid entering the Strip would increase in the coming days. Simultaneously, the World Central Kitchen organization has said it will renew its activity in Gaza, after seven of its workers were killed by an Israeli airstrike earlier in April. In its statement, it was said that WCK is in the process of "building a third high production kitchen in Mawasi," in the Strip's center.

On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken began his diplomatic visit in Saudi Arabia, where he declared that Washington continues in its efforts to stop further escalation in the Strip. He added that the U.S. and other countries have asked Israel to not begin a ground operation in Rafah, citing concerns of a humanitarian disaster, and mentioned that the Biden Administration has not yet seen a plan from Israel on a Rafah offensive that would protect civilians.

"There is talk of a cease-fire and a de-escalation, but nothing will stop diseases and infections," a medical source in the Strip told Haaretz.
