6 Killed, Many Injured In Israeli Airstrikes On Gaza Refugee Camps

Israeli warplanes target houses sheltering displaced people.

At least six people were killed and many others injured Thursday evening in Israeli airstrikes on refugee camps housing displaced Palestinians in Gaza City.

An Israeli warplane targeted a house sheltering displaced people in the Al-Shati Refugee Camp, killing four civilians and injuring others, Palestine's official news agency Wafa reported.

Another Israeli airstrike targeted a house in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood north of Gaza City, resulting in injuries among civilians, the agency added.

The broadcaster also reported that an ambulance and rescue crews managed to retrieve two bodies from rubble after an Israeli fighter jet targeted a house in the New Al-Nuseirat Refugee Camp in central Gaza.

Israel has waged a deadly military offensive on the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7, 2023, cross-border attack by the Palestinian group Hamas, in which nearly 1,200 people were killed.

Nearly 34,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have since been killed in Gaza, and over 76,800 others have been injured amid mass destruction and shortages of necessities.

The Israeli war has pushed 85% of Gaza's population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.

Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice. An interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to stop genocidal acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.
