Gaza: Thousands Flee Khan Younis as Israel Targets Safe Zone

At least eight people were killed by an Israeli bombardment on Tuesday in the central Gaza Strip city of Deir al-Balah, including two women and four children, according to hospital officials there.

The Palestinians who lost their lives were internally displaced, having left their homes in the eastern Khan Younis on Monday.

Tuesday afternoon, a house was struck by the fatal impact.

On Tuesday, first responders from civil defense could be seen looking through the debris for the bodies of the deceased.

According to hospital records and Associated Press journalists on the scene, injured individuals, including children, were brought into the al-Aqsa Martyrs hospital and others were treated on the floor. The primary healthcare facility in the heart of Gaza is the hospital.

The corpses, wrapped in blankets, were brought to a morgue, including women.

Journalists with the Associated Press tallied the bodies as well.

The majority of Gaza’s 2.3 million residents have left their homes, with many of them moving more than once. The supply of humanitarian aid has been hampered by Israeli restrictions, conflict, and the collapse of public order, which has increased widespread hunger and raised worries of famine.

Gaza’s Health Ministry reports that Israel has killed at least 37,900 Palestinians in its war on the Gaza Strip.
