Estimated read time 1 min read

At least 35 people were killed and dozens wounded in Israeli airstrikes on a center for displaced people near Rafah in southern Gaza, according to the Gaza health ministry. The Israeli army confirmed the strike, stating it targeted a Hamas compound, killing two senior Hamas officials, Yassin Rabia and Khaled Nagar. The army acknowledged reports of civilian casualties and is reviewing the incident.

The Hamas-run government accused Israel of committing a massacre by bombarding the UNRWA displacement center with seven missiles, resulting in numerous deaths and injuries, mostly among children and women. The strikes prompted medical organizations, including Doctors Without Borders and the ICRC, to report a significant influx of casualties. Israel’s military action followed rocket fire from Rafah towards central Israel, with Hamas claiming responsibility for targeting Tel Aviv in retaliation.
