The number of deaths due to the ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip has reached 7,028, with 18,484 injured. Nearly 2,000 reports of missing persons under the rubble have been received, and the reports continue to come in.
The occupation has committed 731 massacres, claiming the lives of 5,224. Furthermore, 219 were killed from the southern Gaza Strip out of 481 in the past 24 hours. In addition, there are one and a half million displaced people in 223 shelters and host gatherings in hospitals and public facilities.
The number of homes targeted by shelling is 6,500, with 190,000 housing units affected and a total of 29,000 units completely demolished.
The number of government headquarters targeted by occupation aircraft is 79. There are also dozens of service and public facilities, and 38 mosques and 3 churches in Gaza City were bombed.
The number of affected schools reached 189, of which 25 schools in the Gaza Strip are out of service.
We call on the masses of our nation and the free people of the world to escalate public pressure on the occupation and its supporters and to stand with our people in the face of the massacre committed by the occupation tomorrow until Sunday to stop the extermination and initiate humanitarian corridors.
This massacre in Gaza would not have continued if not for the indifference, silence, and shameful stance of the international community, along with the green light from the US.
We challenge the occupation army if they have the audacity to announce the nature of their military objectives they claim to target by the hundreds every day in Gaza, which in reality are civilian homes, children, and women.
The situation in the Gaza Strip has become unbearable due to the breakdown of rescue equipment, fuel depletion, and its inactivity. Soon, they won't be able to rescue anyone from under the rubble.
The occupation's admission and acknowledgment of targeting the family of journalist Wael Al-Dahdouh, as reported by Channel 13's correspondent, proves that the occupation doesn't care about consequences and is not afraid of being held accountable for its crimes.
The ongoing Israeli occupation aggression on the Gaza Strip on its twentieth day has seen the Israeli war machine commit the most heinous crimes against civilians. They continue to close the crossings of the Strip and prevent the entry of food, medicine, and fuel into the Gaza Strip.
