A number of Palestinian civilians were murdered while others sustained injuries tonight in an Israeli airstrike that targeted a residence in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp, located in the central region of the Gaza Strip. WAFA correspondent reported that Israeli warplanes struck the home of the Samaan family in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp, resulting in casualties and destruction to the home targeted and damage to neighboring homes and infrastructure. Meantime, Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes on the western and northern neighborhoods of Gaza, using internationally banned white phosphorus bombs, particularly in the Al-Shati refugee camp west of Gaza City. Earlier in the night, rescue and civil defense teams recovered the bodies of five individuals who had been killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Abu Hasira family home west of Gaza City. Meanwhile, efforts are ongoing to rescue the remaining bodies and aid the injured who are still trapped beneath the rubble. Earlier today, the Ministry of Health said the toll of casualties resulting from the ongoing Israeli aggression against Gaza and the West Bank since October 7 had climbed to at least 9,572 victims and over 26,000 injured, with over 1,600 others unaccounted for and feared dead under the rubble. In Gaza, 9,425 Palestinians have been killed, with over 25,000 sustaining injuries. In the West Bank, the death toll has reached 147, with over 2,200 injured. Alarmingly, more than two-thirds of the wounded are children, women, and the elderly.
