Palestinian health workers said Israeli airstrikes on Sunday killed at least 35 people and hit the tents of refugees in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, leaving many trapped in burning rubble.
Gaza\’s health ministry said most of the dead were women and children and dozens more were injured.
Although the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to halt its military offensive against Rafah, it did not prevent multiple Israeli air strikes.
More than half of Gaza\’s 2.3 million population had sought asylum in Rafah before Israel invaded earlier this month. Tens of thousands remain in the area while many others have fled.
The Israeli army confirmed the attack and said it attacked a Hamas facility and killed two senior Hamas militants.
The Israeli military said it was investigating reports of civilian injuries.
Defense Minister Yoav Gallant\’s office said he traveled to Rafah on Sunday for a briefing on \”the intensified operation.\”
A spokesman for the Palestinian Red Cross and Red Crescent Society said the death toll was likely to rise as search and rescue efforts continued in the Sudanese neighborhood of Rafatar, about two kilometers northwest of the city centre.
The association claims the site has been designated a \”humanitarian area\” by Israel.
The community is not among the areas ordered to be evacuated by the Israeli military earlier this month.
The airstrike was reported hours after Hamas fired a barrage of rockets from Gaza as far away as Tel Aviv when airstrike sirens were first sounded.
The spokesperson of the Palestinian President issued a statement on the 27th regarding the deliberate attack by the Israeli army on the Rafah refugee camp. The international community needs to urgently intervene to immediately stop the crimes against the Palestinian people.
