At least 24 Palestinians killed in Rafah in Israel’s air raid

TEHRAN, Apr. 22 (MNA) – At least 24 people, including 16 women and six children, were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Two residential houses were destroyed in the air raid. Witnesses say that the number of casualties may increase since clear-up operations continue.

Earlier, Israeli fighter jets delivered a strike on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, killing seven civilians.

According to the enclave’s health ministry, as many as 48 civilians were killed and 79 more were wounded in the Gaza Strip during the day as a result of Israeli bombardments, TASS reported.

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 34,049 Palestinians, mostly women, and children, and injured 76,901 others.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
