Israeli bombs in Gaza result in11 deaths, while tanks continue to toward Rafah.

labiba - | World

At least 11 Palestinians were killed in two Israeli attacks on humanitarian supplies on Monday in Gaza, according to medical professionals. Meanwhile, Israeli tanks continued to advance into Rafah in the south and retook regions in the north that they had previously taken months to conquer.

Three individuals were killed in a single attack at a food distribution center in Gaza City, which is close to the Shati historic refugee camp. At least eight people were killed in another, close to Bani Suhaila town in the southern Gaza Strip, including guards accompanying assistance trucks, according to the doctors.

Israel, which claims that militants are operating among civilians and denies assaulting relief efforts, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The director of Gaza's Ambulance and Emergency Department was murdered overnight in an Israeli bombardment at a medical center in Gaza City, according to the health ministry of the enclave. A senior Hamas armed commander was killed, according to Israel's military.

With the death of Hani al-Jaafarawi, the number of medical personnel killed by Israeli fire since October 7 has risen to 500, according to the health ministry. Thus far, at least 300 more people have been imprisoned.

The Israeli military said in a statement that it was targeting Mohammad Salah, claiming he was in charge of creating Hamas's armaments.
The United States-backed international mediation efforts have not succeeded in bringing about a ceasefire deal after more than eight months of violence. Israel says it will only agree to short-term fighting pauses until Hamas is destroyed, while Hamas demands that any accord bring an end to the conflict.

Israeli soldiers who had taken over the eastern, southern, and central parts of Rafah, close to the Egyptian border, continued their incursion into the western and northern regions, according to locals who described fierce combat.

According to locals, Israeli tanks moved as far as the perimeter of the al-Mawasi camp for displaced people northwest of Rafah on Sunday. As a result, several families were forced to evacuate northward to Khan Younis and Deir al-Balah in central Gaza, the only city in the enclave where tanks have not yet penetrated.

"The situation in western Rafah, at Tel al-Sultan, is still extremely perilous. Bassam, a Rafah resident, told Reuters via a messaging app that "people who try to check on their houses are being hunted by drones and Israeli snipers, and tanks are still taking over areas overseeing al-Mawasi further west."
There have been "intelligence-based targeted operations" in Rafah, according to the Israeli military, wherein militants "who posed threats to them" were killed and weapons and rocket launchers located.

Residents in the enclave to the north reported that tanks had retreated into the al-Zeitoun suburb of Gaza City and were bombarding many locations there. Israel had claimed that its forces had finished operations in this area months prior.

After the attack on Rafah, thousands of Gazans had fled to Deir al-Balah, where medical professionals were treating malnourishment in youngsters and assessing the level of hunger that still plagues the Strip.

Doctor Muaamar Said of the relief organization International Medical Corps stated, "With the displacement, communities are settling in new locations that do not have access to clean water, or there is not adequate access to food." "We worry that more cases are being overlooked."
According to Israeli estimates, terrorists led by Hamas rushed into southern Israel on October 7, murdering about 1,200 people and taking over 250 prisoners. This led to Israel initiating its land and air war in Gaza.

Gaza is in ruins and the Israeli attack in retaliation has killed about 37,600 people, according to Palestinian health authorities.
Rafah, on Gaza's southern border, has been the center of fighting since early May. Roughly half of the 2.3 million residents of the territory had sought refuge there after escaping other regions.

Netanyahu declared that the fierce warfare phase with Hamas would come to an end "very soon."

During an interview with Israel's Channel 14, he stated that forces stationed in Gaza will be allowed to relocate to the north. Israel has issued a warning against Lebanon's Hezbollah organization, which has attacked the border region in what it claims is a show of sympathy with the Palestinians, threatening a full-scale war.

"We will have the opportunity to shift some forces north after the intense phase is over. And we'll carry this out," Netanyahu declared.

This was Netanyahu's first televised interview since the war began, and he usually uses it for political campaigning.

He declared that he would only back a brief ceasefire before the troops resumed their combat. This, according to Hamas, is proof that he is breaking a truce that the White House and the UN had praised.

Senior Hamas political figure living in exile, Ezzat El-Reshiq, said in a statement that Netanyahu's words demonstrated that the talks on a ceasefire were just being used as a stalling tactic while fighting goes on.
