As the US-backed Israeli genocidal war on the Gaza Strip entered day 132 on Thursday, 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 Rafah and Khan Yunis, killing and injuring hundreds of citizens.

According to local media sources, 12 citizens, including seven children, were martyred when the Israeli army bombed a house in Abu Salim area in the west of an-Nuseirat refugee camp.

An Israeli airstrike also targeted a house in northern Gaza, killing one civilian and injuring others.

Other media sources reported several casualties, including a doctor, as the Israeli army bombed and stormed the hospital after demolishing its southern wall.

They added that Israeli army turned the hospital into a military outpost and forced the remaining displaced civilians, several medical crews and patients to evacuate the facility at gunpoint.

The Israeli army also destroyed tents and two ambulances and bulldozed graves in the hospital’s courtyards.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers kidnaped dozens of young men, including journalists and medical workers, at a military checkpoint after forcing them along with displaced civilians to leave the hospital and walk to Rafah.

A number of civilians, who were forced to leave the hospital, also had to return to it after the Israeli army attacked them.

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

For its part, the health ministry in Gaza said on Thursday that the Israeli occupation army committed 9 new massacres in different areas of the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours, killing at least 87 civilians and injuring over 104 others, while a large number of victims are still under the rubble of bombed buildings or lying on roads.
