Israeli airstrikes killed 50 Palestinians in the Beit Lahiya, Khan Younis, and al-Maghazi areas in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The Palestinian Red Crescent has reported at least 10 casualties and 12 injuries in a targeted attack near al-Amal Hospital in the southern city of Khan Younis.

The organisation said in a post to X, “Today, the PRCS Al-Amal Hospital in Khan Younis was targeted for the fifth time in less than a week. In this video, the PRCS team explains the consequences of an Israeli airstrike near Al-Amal Hospital, resulting in the loss of several martyrs and injuries.”

Adding to the tension, Israeli forces conducted raids in Ramallah and other cities across the occupied West Bank. In an incident near the tunnel checkpoint west of Bethlehem, Israeli forces killed 38-year-old Muhammad Sayel Abdelqader al-Jundi. The Palestinian man, from Yatta, south of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, was pronounced dead at Beit Gala Hospital.

Since October 7, more than 21,320 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed and 55,603 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza, according to the Health Ministry in the enclave.

“At least 210 people were killed and 360 others injured in the last 24 hours,” the ministry said on Thursday.

According to the ministry, 312 medics were killed and 104 ambulances destroyed in Israeli attacks, while 23 hospitals and 142 health care centers were forced out of service.

Israel has been carrying out relentless attacks on the Gaza Strip since 7 October, leaving half of the enclave’s housing damaged or destroyed.

Around 2 million people in Gaza have been displaced as a result of the Israeli attacks and they are facing acute shortages of food and clean water.
