Israeli army attacks killed scores of Palestinian civilians across Gaza on Friday, as reported by the Palestinian Wafa news agency

Four civilians were killed in an airstrike that targeted a house in the southern city of Khan Younis, while several others were murdered in another similar attack in a house in the nearby town of Bani Suhaila.

Palestinian news agency Wafa also reported the killing of at least 18 civilians in an airstrike that targeted another house in the Nuseirat refugee camp amid the killing of more people in the region of Jabalia.

Al Jazeera also reported that dozens of people have been killed in a new Israeli airstrike on a school in Gaza, where thousands of Palestinians were taking refuge amid the continuing Israeli violence.

The heinous attack also caused injuries among at least 100 people, with the number expected to increase as more data comes in, according to the same outlet.

The Indonesian Hospital in Gaza, according to the news outlet, only learned about the attack today even if it took place yesterday night, due to a blackout of telecommunication services across the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli airstrikes have escalated near the Indonesian Hospital's vicinity.


Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 11,500 people, including 4,506 children, 3,027 women, and 397 elderly people. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1,400 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2.5 million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers. In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 48 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he was breaking off all contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of Israeli attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip.
