Description

The Palestinian death toll in Israel’s 25-day onslaught on the Gaza Strip has now exceeded 1600, with nearly 9000 people injured. And most of the casualties have been civilians, including a large number of women and children. The latest Israeli strikes on the besieged enclave have left over a dozen people dead. The highest number of casualties has occurred in areas west of Rafah, where an Israeli attack killed 21 people. On Friday, Rafah was the scene of the deadliest Israeli attack in days. At least 91 Palestinians were killed there in a heavy bombardment of the town by the Israeli military. The attack was launched immediately after it was reported that an Israeli soldier had been captured by resistance fighters. Friday’s escalation came after Israel abruptly ended a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire with Hamas only a few hours after it began.
