According to the correspondent, the majority of casualties are still trapped under the rubble of the houses and cannot be reached by civil defense vehicles and ambulances due to the intensity of fire by the occupation’s warplanes, tanks, and drones.

The occupation continued its artillery bombardment against the neighborhoods of Zeitoun, Sabra, Tel al-Hawa and the outskirts of Shuja’iyya, in the city of Gaza, which resulted in the injury of several civilians.
