Israel’s intensified offensive in southern Gaza has led to a rapidly escalating death toll. Palestinian officials report that over 800 people have been killed in Israeli attacks since Saturday.

The Israeli forces have conducted overnight raids in the occupied West Bank, resulting in several arrests of Palestinians. Israeli tanks targeted homes, commercial centres, and refugee camps across the region. They killed two Palestinians and arrested 60 in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society reported concentrated arrests in the Dheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem. The raids were not limited to the Dheisheh refugee camp but occurred across various occupied territories. In Qalqilya, Israeli forces killed two Palestinians.

Since 7 October, Israeli forces have detained over 3,540 Palestinians.

Iran warned of war expansion if Israel does not stop its bombardment in Gaza. Yemen’s Houthi rebels targeted two cargo vessels in the Red Sea.

The healthcare system in Gaza is on the brink of collapse as hospitals are overwhelmed with bodies. Israeli forces have destroyed medical equipment. The Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza faces an electricity outage.

Ambulances and medics have become the latest targets of Israel. A healthcare worker was shot while evacuating a victim. Out of the 40,000 people injured, only a fraction have managed to reach the Rafah crossing in the south.

Since 7 October, more than half of Gaza’s homes have been destroyed or damaged. Most hospitals are shut down due to infrastructure damage. Israeli tanks and armoured vehicles move towards Khan Younis from the east, ordering residents to evacuate amid mass bombardment.

Meanwhile, the corruption trial of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is set to resume. Although exempt from hearings, there is a possibility that the prime minister could testify later.

A US delegation is expected to arrive in Israel for discussions on the post-war situation in Gaza.
