Following the restoration of communication after the blackout, reporters confirmed that Israeli occupation forces, under the veil of darkness, had carried out two additional massacres at al-Fakhoura and Tal al-Zaatar schools, where forcibly displaced Palestinians from Jabalia camp in the northern Gaza Strip were taking refuge.

“Israel” bombed the refugee schools overnight, killing scores of Palestinians while they were sleeping.

As per the Palestinian Minister of Health, Mai al-Kaila, the number of martyrs in the Israeli bombing of al-Fakhoura School has risen to 200.

It is noteworthy that al-Fakhoura School is the largest school in Jabalia camp, housing thousands of displaced people from Gaza who left their homes due to the violent Israeli airstrikes.

Al-Kaila added that “Israel” is waging a war on all hospitals in Gaza, amounting to a war of genocide.

Al-Fakhoura School has been targeted multiple times in recent years. In the 2009 aggression, it was shelled by the occupation forces, leading to the martyrdom of more than 40 people. In the 2014 aggression, the occupation forces shelled it again, resulting in the martyrdom of several individuals. Today, it was targeted again during the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza.

These schools, affiliated with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), which were subjected to relentless Israeli shelling, are among the largest shelters in the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses: Bodies scattered after new IOF massacre in Gaza City

“Bodies were scattered tens of meters away from the targeted building,” eyewitnesses told Al Mayadeen, on Saturday, after the Israeli occupation forces targeted a building for al-Sawaf family in the Shawa Square in Gaza City as part of the ongoing genocide in the Gaza Strip.

City residents have called on civil defense and ambulances, through Al Mayadeen, to intervene and extinguish the fire caused by the attack. They sought assistance in rescuing those trapped inside and providing aid to the injured in the vicinity, especially considering that multiple areas of the Strip are experiencing communication and internet blackouts.

Moreover, Al Mayadeen‘s correspondent reported that the occupation was indiscriminately bombing inhabited homes in the Gaza Strip, in conjunction with the ground operation it has launched, noting that the Israeli raids and rings of fire were concentrated in the northern region of the Gaza Strip, and in the vicinity of the Indonesian hospital.

Gaza death toll climbs to 12,000 following Israeli strikes

The press office of the authorities in Gaza announced earlier that over 12,000 people have been killed as a result of Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip, 5,000 of whom are children. The statement detailed that more than 3,750 Palestinians are now missing, including 1,800 children still under the rubble.

Despite the ongoing Israeli threats for #Palestinians to “evacuate” the northern region of the #Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics confirmed that 807,000 Palestinians continue to reside in the Gaza Governorate, including its northern area.

The World Health Organization reported earlier today that disruptions in communications due to the intensity of the ongoing aggression did not allow for any updates regarding estimates of injuries and deaths over the last four days.

The organization confirmed that the health sector in Gaza is “buckled to its knees,” indicating that 65% of primary care facilities are out of order and 69% of hospitals are not operational.

The Organization pointed out that “ground operations in the city of Gaza and near hospitals, along with the fuel shortage, have led, in addition to the lack of fuel, to the immobility of rescue teams and ambulances in several areas.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to visiting US lawmakers, urging them to expedite emergency military assistance for “Israel” making a specific request for the replenishment of Iron Dome missile interceptors, precision-guided weapons, and 155 mm artillery shells, a Punchbowl report detailed.
