37,431 Dead in Gaza From Israeli Attacks

Israeli fighter jets bombed a house in the Nuseirat refugee camp, where two Palestinians were killed and 12 people were injured. Tank bombings were also reported near the Maghazi and Bureij camps, where several people were injured.

Meanwhile, in Deir al-Balah, an airstrike left one person dead and several injured. In the Zaytoun neighborhood, a bombing of a house caused eight deaths and more injuries. The victims were taken to Al-Ahli Al-Arabi Baptist Hospital.

The Israeli occupation army also killed three people during a drone attack in the Fakhari neighborhood of Khan Yunis city, in the southern Gaza Strip.

On Friday, Zionist forces killed two Palestinians traveling in a vehicle in downtown Qalqilya, in the northwest of the West Bank. A video shared on social media shows a lifeless body lying face down between the half-open driver’s door of a white car.

It also shows how Israeli special forces pull a second dead Palestinian from the passenger seats, whose body falls onto the asphalt. On the ground, what appears to be a third body can be seen. Israeli police took the bodies and prevented Palestinian ambulances from approaching the scene.

So far this year, Israeli occupation forces have killed nine Palestinians in the Qalqilya governorate. Throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, the number of Palestinian victims has risen to 221, with the most violent areas being the governorates of Jenin (59 dead) and Tulkarem (54 dead).

Israel has killed at least 37,431 Palestinians and injured 85,653 since it began its offensive against Gaza on October 7, 2023.
