Israeli Aggression Continues in Gaza, 48 More Palestinians Killed

Gaza: The Israeli aggression in Gaza persists, with an additional 48 Palestinians martyred in the last 24 hours. Additionally, the Israeli army again bombarded the Nusseirat camp, resulting in the death of several Palestinians.

Civil defense teams discovered a mass grave containing 210 bodies of Palestinians near Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis after Israeli occupying forces recently withdrew from the area.

On the same day, Israel once again bombarded the Nusseirat refugee camp resulting in the death of 7 more Palestinians. A separate series of airstrikes targeted southern Rafah city, claiming 24 lives, including 16 Palestinian children and six women.

Since October 7, 2023, Israel has continued its aggression in Gaza, which has resulted in the total number of martyrs in Palestine exceeding 34,151.

According to the Gaza Ministry of Health, the number of injuries due to Israeli attacks in Gaza has reached 77,084.

The Destruction and Blood bath in Gaza:

The UN has recorded 349 “incidents,” including assaults from air, land, and naval forces, on facilities bearing the UN flag in the Palestinian territory. These attacks led to the deaths of 408 displaced individuals.

In December, an Israeli attacked Gaza’s largest fertility clinic with a shell, resulting in the destruction of over 4,000 embryos, along with 1,000 sperm specimens and unfertilized eggs, as per a Reuters report.

Meanwhile, UN Women has highlighted the gendered impact of Israel’s war on Gaza, emphasizing that more than 10,000 women have lost their lives in the war, leaving behind thousands of orphaned children. The report characterizes Israel’s war on Gaza as not only a military assault but also a “war on women,” exacerbating existing vulnerabilities and exacerbating humanitarian crises.

In a devastating revelation, the latest analysis of satellite imagery from the UN Satellite Centre (UNOSAT) has uncovered that approximately 90% of the buildings located along Gaza’s eastern border have either been destroyed or severely damaged. This preliminary assessment paints a grim picture of the extensive destruction inflicted upon the enclave by the Israeli occupying forces.

The UN’s humanitarian update underscores a stark increase in the number of damaged and destroyed buildings within the one-kilometer stretch of land along the Gaza Strip’s border west of the Armistice Demarcation Line. Of the 4,042 buildings captured in the satellite imagery taken on February 29, a staggering 3,033 have been completely razed, while 593 others bear severe or moderate damage. Alarmingly, only 416 structures show no visible signs of damage through satellite imagery.

This catastrophic level of destruction marks a significant escalation compared to previous assessments, with only 15% of the buildings in the same area reported as damaged as of October 15, 2023. Additionally, mapping experts Corey Scher of the City University of New York and Jamon Van Den Hoek of Oregon State University estimate that approximately 55% of the buildings in the Khan Younis area, totaling around 45,000 structures, have suffered destruction or damage.

The dire situation in Khan Younis underscores the severity of the crisis, rendering the majority of the territory uninhabitable for its 2.3 million residents. With Gaza’s southernmost town of Rafah facing similar devastation amid looming invasion threats, the humanitarian toll of the conflict continues to escalate.

It remains evident that the genocidal attacks of the Israeli forces on Gaza continue. The UN reports that 85% of Gaza’s population has been displaced internally, with critical shortages of food, water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed.

Israel faces accusations of genocide at the International Court of Justice, with an interim ruling in January ordering Tel Aviv to cease genocidal acts and ensure the provision of humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza, which so far has gone unheeded as relentless Israeli attacks on Gaza claim the lives of dozens and hundreds of Palestinians daily.
