The armed wing of Hamas, the al-Qassam Brigades, launched a missile attack on Tel Aviv on Sunday, in retaliation for what it described as “Zionist massacres against civilians” in Gaza.

Hamas’s Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for the missile launch, stating it was a direct response to Israeli military actions in Gaza.

The Israeli military reported that eight rockets were launched towards central Israel from the Rafah area in southern Gaza, several of which were intercepted. Local media sources reported that alarms were triggered in approximately 30 areas across central Israel, including Tel Aviv. Initial reports indicate there were several light injuries and some physical damage due to the attack.

Palestinian news agency Wafa reported an Israeli airstrike on a residential home in central Rafah, resulting in one death and several injuries, with the wounded being transported to Kuwaiti Hospital in Rafah. Overnight airstrikes by Israeli forces in Rafah also killed six Palestinians, including a child.

In the past 24 hours alone, Israel has killed more than 80 Palestinians in various attacks across Gaza.

On Friday, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel to halt military operations in Rafah. Israel continued its military campaign despite this order.

Egypt’s Red Crescent reported that more than 200 aid trucks, including four fuel trucks, are expected to enter Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing. This effort comes amid calls from 70 international organisations for the official declaration of a famine in the Gaza Strip, as food insecurity has drastically worsened due to the ongoing conflict.

Israeli forces conducted raids on Saturday and Sunday in various locations across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, including Ramallah, Bethlehem, Nablus, Hebron, and Jenin. According to the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society, 15 arrests were made, adding to the total of 8,875 Palestinians detained by Israeli forces.

The Gaza Health Ministry reported that Israel, since October 7, has killed at least 35,984 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and wounded 80,643 others in Gaza.
