Israel launches intense shelling of Gaza on second day of truce collapse

The Israeli regime launched an intense bombardment campaign on various areas in the Gaza Strip on Saturday as the occupying entity presses ahead with its genocidal war against Palestinians in the besieged territory for a second day in a row after the truce collapsed.

Palestine’s official Wafa news agency said the Israeli occupation army continued its violent bombardment of the Gaza Strip by land, sea and air since the early hours of Saturday, which resulted in “killing and injuring dozens of civilians.”

The news agency said the Israeli aggression mainly targeted the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Yunis.

“Israeli warplanes have intensified their bombardment of the eastern and central areas of Khan Younis since the pre-dawn hours,” Wafa said, adding that the attacks leveled to the ground four homes as well as three mosques in al-Qarara, northeast of Khan Younis.

Occupation warplanes also launched a series of violent raids on homes in Sheikh Nasr and Bani Suhaila in Khan Younis, according to the news agency.

In the central Gaza Strip, the Israeli warplanes and gunboats continued to bomb several areas in Deir al-Balah. The warplanes also targeted homes in al-Tawam, Sheikh Radwan, Jabalia, and Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip.

Palestine’s Shehab news agency confirmed the Israeli aggression on Saturday, saying the Israeli regime’s warplanes bombed “more than 50 targets in an intensive attack on the Khan Yunis area.”

The news agency added that the occupying entity had attacked more than “400 targets” in the Gaza Strip since the end of the truce, resulting in the death of over 200 people, the injury of at least 589 others and destruction of more than 20 homes.

Israel waged its war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched an operation against the occupied territories on that day in response to the Israeli regime’s decades-long campaign of bloodletting and devastation against Palestinians.

Tel Aviv also blocked water, food, and electricity to Gaza, plunging the coastal strip into a humanitarian crisis.

The truce, which was extended twice, began on November 24. It had paused brutal Israeli strikes on Gaza that began in early October and killed more than 15,000 Palestinians.
