Saturday 22-June-2024


The Hamas Movement condemned the ongoing Israeli massacres on the Gaza Strip, saying “The Nazi Zionist enemy continues to brutally target civilians in the Gaza Strip, and implement new massacres against children, women and the elderly.”

In a statement on Saturday, Hamas denounced the Israeli airstrikes targeting a residential square in Al-Shati camp, west of Gaza City, Al-Tufah and Al-Zayton neighborhoods, and the displaced tents in the Al-Mawsi area west of Khan Yunis and Rafah, which led to the martyrdom of dozens of citizens, as part of the ongoing Israeli genocide war on Gaza, which has been waged for more than eight months in violation of all international laws.”

Hamas said, “the horrific series of the Zionist crimes against civilians require more effective and serious activism from the international community to oblige Israel to halt its crimes and violations against our defenseless people in the Gaza Strip.”

Earlier on Saturday, the Israeli occupation army killed 54 citizens and wounded many children and women in three massacres committed in three different sites in Gaza City.

According to local sources, Israeli warplanes bombed a residential square in Al-Shati camp, west of Gaza City, destroying seven homes on top of its residents, killing 24 citizens and injuring dozens of others.

The Civil Defense said its crews in Gaza managed to retrieve a number of martyrs and wounded, most of them children and women, adding that rescue teams are still searching for victims under the rubble.

Israeli airstrikes also targeted a house in the vicinity of Jabal Al-Rayes, east of Al-Tufah neighborhood, northeast of Gaza City, leading to the martyrdom of 19 citizens and the injury of many others.

The Civil Defense in Gaza confirmed recovering 19 martyrs and more than 35 injuries, including critical cases, after Israeli airstrikes hit a house of Shabit’s family near Al-Batsh cemetery in Al-Tufah neighborhood. A number of missing people are still under the debris, the Civil Defense added.

Meanwhile, the house of Fannana family was also bombed in Al-Shujaiya neighborhood in Gaza, leading to the martyrdom of four people.

Seven other people were killed in Israeli artillery shelling this morning in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, southeast of Gaza City.

On Friday, 42 Palestinians were killed, and 85 others wounded in several Israeli raids on Gaza City. Most of the casualties were women and children.
