On the 44th day of the war, Israeli airstrikes killed dozens of people, including children, in northern, central, and southern Gaza.

The most vulnerable patients at al-Shifa Hospital, dozens of prematurely born babies in critical condition, have been evacuated to the south of the Gaza Strip.

Of the 39 babies who had been left without incubators when al-Shifa Hospital was left short of fuel and medical supplies after Israeli forces raided on Wednesday, 31 have made it out.


Thirteen people in the Nuseirat Refugee Camp were killed during an air strike, and a mother and daughter were killed in a raid in Khan Younis. The raids carried out in the West Bank region resulted in the killing of a 46-year-old disabled person in the Jenin Refugee Camp and a 20-year-old young man in the Dheisha Refugee Camp.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) stated that an attack was carried out on ambulance convoys carrying medical teams near the Shifa Hospital in the Gaza Strip, and one of the family members of MSF employees died.


The death toll in Israel’s attacks on the Fakhoora School and the Tal al-Zaatar School in the north of the Cibaliye Refugee Camp yesterday reached 200. It was stated that many people were trapped under the rubble of the schools, where thousands of Palestinians took shelter, and the loss of life is expected to increase. Locals continue searching the rubbles in both areas with shovels and bare hands.


As a result of Israel’s attacks in the Gaza Strip in the morning hours, the Grand Mosque in the Maghazi refugee camp was destroyed, and many houses near the mosque were damaged. Palestinian officials stated that there were casualties and injuries.

The Palestinian Media Office announced at the beginning of the week that the number of mosques damaged in Israeli attacks was 242.


Families of the Israeli citizens imprisoned by Hamas and, many others who want to support them, continue to stage protests in Israel. Thousands of Israelis gathered in Prisoner Square in the capital, Tel Aviv, and reacted to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government. Holding banners reading “Bring back our children immediately” and pictures of their captured relatives, the demonstrators called for Netanyahu’s immediate resignation.


‘Free Palestine’ rallies continue in Washington, the capital of the U.S., Pro-Palestinian residents living in Washington, came together around the Washington Monument yesterday and protested Israel with banners reading “Palestinian children’s dreams were stolen”, “Stop the genocide in Gaza,” and “Stop killing the sick.” The rallies also lay motionless on the ground with blood-like painted covers on them, symbolizing numerous people who lost their lives in the war. Notes reading “Killed by Israel” were also placed on them.


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 12,300 people, including 5,000 children, 3,300 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, 50 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.
