On the forty-third consecutive day of the aggression against Gaza, Israel continued its artillery and aircraft bombardments on the Gaza Strip.
At dawn, Israeli aircraft bombed several residential apartments in the city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, killing about 26 Palestinians, most of whom were children.
Civil defense crews said that they "extracted body parts from under the rubble, while a number of victims are still missing."
The aircraft launched heavy raids in the vicinity of the Indonesian Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip, coinciding with violent artillery shelling in the eastern region.
The Grand Mosque in Al-Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip was also targeted, bringing the number of mosques targeted by Israel to 242 mosques in the Strip, according to the government media office in Gaza on Friday evening.
In the latest statistics of the ongoing aggression since October 7, the death toll exceeded 12,000 Palestinian martyrs, including 5,000 children and 3,300 women, according to the government media office in Gaza, which indicated that Israel committed 1,270 massacres against the residents of the Strip.
