“Palestinian medical sources reported that at least 100 people were killed and more than 230 injured as a result of heavy Israeli strikes on the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip,” the publication said.
Citing data from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), the channel reported that the IDF carried out more than 50 airstrikes throughout the city, with the largest number of attacks occurring in the center. The Al-Huda Mosque was damaged, as was the Al-Rahma Mosque, where large numbers of displaced Gazans were sheltering. The strikes lasted for more than an hour.
Earlier that day, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said that the international community must intervene in what is happening in the city of Rafah and prevent the Israeli army from attacking the province. Shtayyeh addressed the United States, the European Union, the UN Security Council and the entire international community as a whole. He stressed that Rafah is currently home to about 1.4 million displaced people from the Gaza Strip.
