9 killed, several injured as Israel bombs Deir al-Balah camp

TEHRAN, May 12 (MNA) – The Civil Defense in the Gaza Strip announced Saturday that teams recovered nine bodies and several wounded victims, including a child, as a result of an Israeli bombing attack on a house in the middle of the enclave.

“Civil defense teams were able to recover 9 martyrs and rescue a child and a number of injuries after the occupation aircraft targeted the house of the Al-Louh family in Deir al-Balah refugee camp,” it said in a statement.

Witnesses told Anadolu that the Israeli shelling led to the destruction of the house and caused extensive damage to homes and property.

The Israeli military on Saturday expanded its simultaneous ground and air attacks across all governorates of Gaza, following its demand to evacuate residents from wide areas in the northern and central areas.

It also advanced into the southern part of Gaza City and the eastern areas of Khan Younis in addition to conducting a series of intense airstrikes that resulted in dozens of deaths and injuries in various areas of the territory.

Since the Israel attack on Oct. 7, nearly 34,950 Palestinians, most of them women and children, have since been killed, and nearly 78,600 injured, according to Palestinian health authorities.

Seven months into the conflict, vast swathes of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.
