Israeli army drops incendiary bombs on Gaza shelters

Saturday 9-December-2023

Israeli army has continued its relentless bombardment on civilians in the besieged Gaza Strip, dropping a large number of incendiary bombs on schools sheltering thousands of Palestinians.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced on Saturday that 71 martyrs and 160 wounded arrived in the hospital Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital over the last 24 hours, in the wake of targeting Central Gaza.

Around 62 martyrs and 100 wounded were transferred to Nasser Medical Complex in southern Gaza, the Ministry added.

Local sources reported that martyrs and injured people, mostly children, were transferred to Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital after Israeli airstrikes blew up a house in Al-Salam neighborhood in Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza. Some of the cases were very critical while there is severe shortage in medical equipment.

The bodies of four martyrs and a number of wounded were recovered from under the rubble of the house of Joefel family that was shelled last night.

The Director General of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Munir Al-Bursh, confirmed on Saturday that Israeli army bombed shelter centers in northern Gaza with smoke and incendiary bombs, causing unprecedented cases of suffocation and burns.

“We have treated more than 100 unprecedented cases of suffocation and burning that we have not seen before”, Al-Bursh said.
