Gaza Refugee Camps Hit In Airstrikes As Death Toll Nears 10,000
Israeli airstrikes have hit two refugee camps in the central Gaza Strip, killing at least 53 people, health officials said.
The strikes came as the U.S. has urged Israel to take a humanitarian pause from its relentless bombardment of Gaza and rising civilian deaths. President Joe Biden suggested that progress was being made on the humanitarian pause.
The Palestinian death toll in the Israel-Hamas war has now surpassed 9,700 with more than 4,000 of them children and minors, according to the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza. In the occupied West Bank, more than 140 Palestinians have been killed in violence and Israeli raids.
More than 1,400 people in Israel have been killed, most of them in the Oct. 7 Hamas attack that started the fighting, and 242 hostages were taken from Israel into Gaza by the militant group.
Roughly 1,100 people have left the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing since Wednesday under an apparent agreement among the United States, Egypt, Israel and Qatar, which mediates with Hamas.
Meanwhile, Gaza lost communications on Sunday in its third total outage of the Israel-Hamas war, while Israel’s military said it encircled Gaza City and divided the besieged coastal strip into two.
“Today there is north Gaza and south Gaza,” Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari told reporters, calling it a “significant stage” in Israel’s war against the Hamas militant group ruling the enclave.
Israeli media reported troops were expected to enter Gaza City within 48 hours. Strong explosions were seen in northern Gaza after nightfall.
Israeli warplanes struck two refugee camps late on Sunday, killing at least 53 people and wounding dozens in central Gaza.
The area is home to the zone where Israel’s military had urged Palestinian civilians to seek refuge, health officials said. It comes as Israel vowed to continue with its offensive to obliterate Hamas, despite US appeals for pauses to facilitate the delivery of aid to trapped civilians in the besieged territory.
