Israeli warplanes bomb homes in Nusseirat refugee camp, claiming 14 innocent lives

At least 13 innocent civilians, including children and women, were brutally massacred tonight and many others were injured in a barrage of Israeli airstrikes targeting multiple homes in Nusseirat refugee camp, in the central Gaza Strip. According to local sources, Israeli warplanes bombed the residences of the Assar and Zaqout families in the refugeee camp, leaving a minimum of 13 civilian casualties. The toll is expected to rise as rescue efforts continue to extract survivors from the debris. The victims were rushed to Al-Awda Hospital in the central province of Gaza, while many others remain trapped under the rubble. In addition to the assault on the Nusseirat refugee camp, Israeli fighter jets targeted a residential building in the Al-Jalaa Street in Gaza City. The strike resulted in further casualties, local sources mentioned, with both fatalities and injuries reported. The wounded were promptly transported to the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital for urgent medical attention. Since the beginning of the Isra eli offensive on Gaza on October 7, over 16,000 Palestinians, including 6,500 children and more than 4,500 women, have been killed by Israeli aerial or artillery bombardment, according to non-final estimates. Additionally, over 38,000 individuals have been wounded. Meantime, thousands of civilians remain unaccounted for, with fears mounting that many may have perished beneath the rubble of their homes. Despite continuous efforts by emergency and rescue teams, the retrieval of these individuals has proven challenging amid the severe shortage of civil defense equipment under Israel's relentless aggression on the enclave.
