Occupied Jerusalem: Israeli military raided the headquarters of the Bank of Palestine in Gaza, stealing 200 million shekels ($54.29 million) from the Bank of Palestine headquarters in Gaza City, as detailed by Israeli newspaper Maariv on Sunday.
Citing Israeli officers, Maariv revealed that the seized funds were designated for the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. An Israeli military spokesman, speaking to Maariv, indicated that the soldiers were stationed at the Bank of Palestine headquarters to prevent funds from reaching Hamas, without elaborating further.
Notably, there has been no official response from either the Palestinian Authority or Hamas regarding the incident.
The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that Israeli air and sea strikes on Rafah overnight resulted in the deaths of at least 100 Palestinians. The situation in Gaza has seriously deteriorated with Israel’s attacks on Rafah, where over 1.4 million. Due to the lack of food, medicines, and basic supplies and facilities, the lives of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are at great risk.
Philippe Lazzarini, the head of UNRWA, stated that a shipment containing a month’s worth of food for Gaza is currently being prevented from reaching its destination at Israel’s Ashdod Port.
Hamas on Sunday accused the Israeli army of pursuing a genocidal approach after approximately 100 bodies were discovered in Gaza City following the Israeli withdrawal. Hamas called on the International Court of Justice to document these alleged crimes. Despite facing trial in the ICJ for genocide against Palestinians, the Israeli army continues to target civilians in Gaza.
The Israeli offensive in Gaza persists despite a recent provisional ruling by the International Court of Justice. Over the past 24 hours, at least 112 Palestinians have lost their lives. Since October 7, Palestinian health authorities report that at least 28,176 Palestinians, predominantly women and children, have been killed, with 67,784 others injured.
The Israeli offensive has resulted in 85% of Gaza’s population being internally displaced. Moreover, the UN highlights acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, with 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure damaged or destroyed.
