On Tuesday evening, Gaza’s Ministry of Health announced the death of 700 people in 24 hours, the majority of them killed in air strikes targeting family homes in Rafah, Beit Lahia, al-Faluga, Khan Yunis, and Buriej and Shati refugee camps.
The ministry said Israel committed 47 massacres against Palestinian families.

Since Israel’s war on Gaza Strip, at least 6,546 Palestinians have been killed, including 2,360 children. Nearly 18,000 were injured, according to Gaza’s Ministry of Health….
