Tuesday 13-February-2024

As the US-backed Israeli genocidal war on the Gaza Strip entered day 130 on Tuesday, 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 and Rafah, killing and injuring hundreds of citizens.

According to media sources, six civilians, including an infant, were martyred following an Israeli aerial attack on a car in Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, north of Gaza City.

The Israeli army attacked the area of an-Nada Towers in northern Gaza, killing one civilian and injuring another one.

Casualties were also reported following an Israeli attack on a group of civilians near the western junction of Miraj, which is not far from Khan Yunis.

A child identified as Khaled Abu Taima was shot dead by an Israeli sniper in front of Al-Amal School in Khan Yunis, while another citizen was killed and two others were wounded when the Israeli army bombed a gathering of civilians at the junction of Lababidi in the west of Gaza City.

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera satellite channel reported that an Israeli drone fired at least one missile directly at its correspondent Ismail Abu Amr and its photojournalist Ahmed Matar, injuring them seriously.

The two Al Jazeera journalists were targeted as they were covering the forcible evacuation of displaced families from an area near the junction of Miraj in southern Khan Yunis.

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