Shortages in Foodstuffs and About 400,000 Civilians Forcibly
Displaced;

Extreme Shortages of Electricity and Water Supplies Raise Concerns
for Public Health

 

Since the Beginning of the Israeli Offensive on Gaza:

1,432 Palestinians Killed, of Whom 1,219
Are Civilians, Including 345 Children and 186 Women, and 6,511 Others Wounded,
Mostly Civilians, Including 1,786 Children and 1,239 Women;

680 Houses Targeted and Destroyed and Hundreds of Others Extensively Damaged

 

Israeli occupation forces have
continued their brutal and immoral offensive on the Gaza Strip for the 24th
consecutive day, and have continued the policy of collective punishment in
disregard for the international law and humanitarian law, which ensure
protection for civilians in times of war, and in violation of the principles of
necessity, proportionality and distinction.
Israeli
forces have continued their aerial, ground and sea attacks throughout the Gaza
Strip, causing more civilian casualties and damaging civilian facilities.
Israeli forces escalated their attacks throughout the Gaza Strip. At
approximately 15:00 on Wednesday, Israeli forces declared a humanitarian truce
for 4 hours, so many Palestinian civilians went out to buy basic needs. Soon,
Israeli tanks fired many shells at Palestinian civilians in al-Shuja’iya
market.  As a result of the attack, 30
civilians, including 8 children, 2 journalists, a paramedic and 2 civil defense
workers, were killed.  At another levels,
Palestinian civilians were released from custody by Israeli forces stated that
Israeli forces put them on the fronts of tanks as human shields while moving
into Palestinian communities east of Khan Yuniss.  They were extremely tortured during
interrogation in Kerem Shalom post, southeast of Rafah.  Electricity supplies have been off in the
Gaza Strip for the third consecutive day. 
Municipalities face extreme difficulties in their work due to the lack
of fuel supplies and because if Israeli attacks.  These developments raise concerns regarding
public health in Gaza Strip, which is one of the most densely populated areas
in the world.  The crisis has further
aggravated as at least 400,000 civilians were forcibly displaced from their
homes, and were forced to resort to shelters in the centers of towns and
refugee camps.
