Casualties in a series of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, fisherman killed in Rafah

NNA - Several Palestinians, including a child and a woman, were killed today in an Israeli airstrike which targeted a house in the Al-Rimal neighborhood west of Gaza City. Meanwhile, a fisherman was shot dead by the Israeli navy off the shores of Rafah in the south of the enclave.

WAFA correspondent reported that Israeli fighter jets bombed a house belonging to Al-Shawa family in the Al-Remal neighborhood. Subsequently, rescue and ambulance crews retrieved the bodies of three victims, including a child and a woman, along with several injured individuals from under the rubble of the targeted house.

The casualties and the injured were transported to Al-Ahli Arab Hospital, the last functioning hospital in Gaza City after Israeli occupation forces destroyed the Al-Shifa Medical Complex during a major invasion of the western areas of the city last month.

Israeli warplanes also targeted the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood south of Gaza City, as well as a residential building on Al-Wehda Street in the city center, resulting in the killing of at least one civilian and the injury of others.

In Rafah, located in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, a fisherman was killed and another was injured by Israeli occupation forces while they were working off the Mediterranean coast of the city.

Additionally, rescue teams managed to retrieve the body of a martyr from under the rubble of the Jouda family's house in the Shaboura refugee camp, which was targeted by an Israeli airstrike last Saturday.

Simultaneously, Israeli artillery shelled the Nuseirat and Bureij camps in central Gaza, while the occupation forces demolished homes and facilities in the neighboring town of Al-Maghazi.

In a preliminary toll, the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza since October 7, 2023 has claimed the lives of at least 34,305 Palestinians, mostly children and women, with an additional 77,293 injuries.--WAFA
