Monday 5-February-2024


As the US-backed Israeli genocidal war on the Gaza Strip entered day 122 on Monday, massive aerial and artillery strikes continued to pound neighborhoods, homes and shelter centers and massacre more civilians, mostly children and women.

A reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) said that the Israeli occupation army continued to attack different areas of Gaza, mainly Khan Yunis, killing and injuring dozens of citizens.

According to the health ministry in Gaza, four civilians were martyred and others were injured when the Israeli army bombed a house in al-Hakr area in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza.

The Israeli army also bombed a house in al-Zawaida area in central Gaza, killing seven citizens and injuring others.

The Israeli bombardment of Khan Yunis, which has been ongoing relentlessly since the morning, claimed the lives of 14 civilians and injured others. All the casualties were evacuated to Nasser Hospital.

Last night, Israeli soldiers set fire to a number of apartments in the Burj as-Susi area in the west of Gaza City.

Other casualties were reported in different areas of Gaza following Israeli aerial, artillery and shooting attacks last night and today.

The Israeli army also bombed and detonated several blocks and private and public buildings during its incursions throughout the Gaza Strip.

In a related context, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnaped Dr. Haider al-Qudra, member of its executive office and director general of Al-Amal Hospital, and Maher Atallah, the hospital’s administrative director, after summoning them on Monday afternoon.

The Red Crescent added that the IOF kidnaped Qudra and Atallah after it announced that the Israeli army agreed to provide a safe passage for the evacuation of the displaced families from Al-Amal Hospital and the society’s headquarters, which had been under Israeli siege and attack for over two weeks.

The Red Crescent pointed out that hundreds of displaced people started to leave Al-Amal Hospital and its headquarters and walk to al-Mawasi area in Khan Yunis.
