57 more Gazans perish in Israeli genocide; UN-run school hit again

Palestinian health officials said at least 57 people were killed yesterday in Israeli bombardments of southern and central areas of the Gaza Strip.The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has accused Israel of stepping up attacks in Gaza to try to derail efforts by Arab mediators and the US to reach a ceasefire deal.In Rafah, five Palestinians were killed in an airstrike on a house. In nearby Khan Younis, a man, his wife, and two children were killed.Later yesterday, an Israeli airstrike on a car killed at least 17 Palestinians and wounded 26 others in Khan Younis in southern Gaza, the officials said.The airstrike hit near a tented area housing displaced families in Attar Street in the humanitarian-designated area of Al-Mawasi, the health ministry said.Footage showed residents carrying bodies of the dead and wounded on donkey carts and in rickshaws to hospitals.In the historic Nuseirat camp in central Gaza, at least four Palestinians were killed in separate shelling and aerial strikes in central Gaza, medics said. An Israeli airstrike also killed four in Sheikh Zayed in northern Gaza.Hours later, an Israeli air strike on a UN-run school that housed displaced families in the Nuseirat camp killed 23 people and wounded many others, health officials said.At least 38,713 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s offensive in Gaza since October 7.Among those killed was local journalist Mohamed Meshmesh, taking the number of journalists killed in the conflict to 160, the Hamas-run Gaza government media office said.“Where is the safety for (UN) agency schools? There are no more safe agency schools, or safe clinics, no more safe houses, no safe streets. We have been left desolate, displaced and destroyed,” said eyewitness Umm Omar Ahmed at Nuseirat camp.Efforts to end the conflict stalled on Saturday after three days of negotiations failed to produce a viable outcome, Egyptian security sources said, and after an Israeli strike killed more than 90 people in the Khan Younis area.
