As a sign of his impending raid on him he described Fatah’s official as bombing a multi-story building, in which Palestinian immigrants from other cities affected by the Israeli army had mostly fled. The building that struck Israel in Rafa is one of the largest housing complexes, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, thus intensifying pressure on the last region of the enclave in which it has not invaded even where over a million displaced Palestinians fled. The 12-story building, located about 500 meters from the border with Egypt, was damaged by the raid. Dozens of families have remained homeless, although there are currently no reports of victims, according to residents. The Israeli army has not yet responded to a request to comment on this. One of the 300 residents of the building told Reuters that Israel gave them 30 minutes to leave it at night. “People scared, ran panicking on the stairs, some fell, there was chaos. People left their possessions and money,” said Mohammad Al-Nabris, adding that among those who stumbled on the steps during the evacuation was the pregnant wife of a friend.

Israeli operations plunged the Palestinian enclave, already shaken by an Israeli 17-year blockade, into a humanitarian disaster. Much of the region has been turned into debris and most of its population of 2.3 million has been displaced, with the UN warning of the occurrence of diseases and famine. Three Palestinian children died of dehydration and malnutrition at Al Shifa hospital during the night, Hamas’ health ministry spokesman in Gaza Ashraf al Kidra said. Kidra said with these losses the number of Palestinians who have died of similar causes for nearly 10 days. “ This brutal war has dissolved every notion of common humanity, ” said Miriana Spoliaric, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross. She called for the end of hostilities in order to allow a substantial distribution of aid to Gaza, Hamas to release all hostages unconditionally and Israel to manage Palestinian prisoners with humanity and allow them to communicate with their families. The war was sparked by Hamas’ attack on October 7 in southern Israel, where 1,200 people were killed and 253 were held hostage, according to Israel’s count.
