We extend our condolences to journalist Wael Al-Dahdouh, whose family was deliberately targeted by the Israeli occupation. The killing of his wife, son, and daughter followed threats he received from the occupation to prevent him from performing his journalistic mission and documenting the Nazi crimes committed in Gaza.
The death toll since the start of the Israeli occupation's massacres on October 7th has reached 6,546 martyrs, including: 2,704 children, 1,584 women and girls, and 364 elderly, in addition to 1,600 missing under the rubble, including 900 children, with 17,439 citizens injured.
The Israeli occupation has committed more than 688 massacres against Palestinian families, killing approximately 4,807 people since the start of its aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7th.
Claims by the Israeli occupation of stealing fuel from "UNRWA" premises are refuted by facts as the agency's administration has not mentioned it. They officially announced the imminent cessation of their operations in the Strip due to the non-entry of fuel and its impending depletion.
The occupation's lies about the amount of fuel in the Rafah crossing tank on the Palestinian side are refuted by the Association of Fuel Station Owners. We reiterate that it cannot be extracted or utilized; it is at risk of being bombed by the occupation, which threatened to target any truck heading to it.
More than 183,000 housing units have been accounted for, with 50% of the housing units in the Strip affected. Of these, more than 28,500 housing units were completely demolished by the occupation or became uninhabitable.
77 government headquarters and dozens of public and service facilities were destroyed by the occupation, causing significant damage, while 188 schools suffered various damages, with 35 schools put out of service.
The occupation continues to target water, electricity, and sewage networks, taking several out of service.
The occupation persists in targeting churches and mosques; 35 mosques were completely damaged, and 3 churches suffered significant damage.
The ongoing crimes of the occupation against civilians affirm that its actions are a Zionist massacre against the people of the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian people everywhere, extending from the aggression on Palestine in 1948 to the present day.
