Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) – The Gaza Ministry of Health announced Sunday that on the previous day at least 80 people were killed by the Israeli bombardment of the Palestinians, with 32 of them being from one extended family, according to Al-Arabiya. The deaths occurred because of two distinct Israeli airstrikes on the Jabaliya refugee camp targeting schools.
One strike hit the Al-Fakhura school. which is run by the United Nations. Al-Jazeera reports, “Dead bodies [are] scattered … pieces of flesh”, an unnamed witness told Al Jazeera. “No one can recognise their sons. Our life is hell.”
Thousands of internally displaced people (IDPs) had taken refuge in the Fakhoura school.
Another Israeli bombing raid targeted a private home, killing 32 persons, including 19 children.
Marwan Bishara, a senior analyst at Al-Jazeera, said, “There is nothing discriminate about the fact that a school that shelters thousands of people has been bombed from the air; that is meant to create damage, human loss, suffering and death.”
On Monday morning it was reported that al-Shifa hospital was evacuated during the humanitarian pause implemented by the Israeli armed forces. It had housed some 7,000 internally displaced people. Israel attacked the hospital repeatedly, claiming that it was serving as a headquarters for Hamas, but no evidence was ever presented for the truth of these allegations.
More than 12,000 Palestinians have been killed by the Israelis since the horrific Hamas attacks af October 7, in a “revenge” genocide. Some 5,000 of them were minors and children.
