International Desk:

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) has reported Israeli forces “firing heavily” in a raid on al-Amal Hospital in Khan Younis.

“We’ve lost a health clinic, major shelters – facilities that were supporting the people of Khan Younis,” says Thomas White, UNRWA’s director of Gaza affairs, as staff join thousands fleeing the city in southern Gaza.

Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour has told the UN Security Council that for the International Court of Justice’s “provisional measures to be implemented, there must be a ceasefire in Gaza”. US National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby says that talks on an “extended pause” in fighting are “constructive”.

At least 26,900 people have been killed and 65,949 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7. The death toll in Israel from the October 7 Hamas attacks stands at 1,139.

The Health Ministry issued a statement as the deadly Israeli onslaught entered its 117th day.

The statement noted that in the past 24 hours, the Israeli army committed 16 “massacres” across the Gaza Strip, leaving 150 people dead and 313 others injured.

“Many people are still trapped under the rubble … and rescuers can’t reach them,” it added.

Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since a cross-border attack by Palestinian group Hamas in October, in which nearly 1,200 Israelis are believed to have been killed.

About 85% of Gazans have been displaced by the Israeli onslaught, while all of them are food insecure, according to the UN. Hundreds of thousands of people are living without shelter, and ⁠less than half of aid trucks are entering the territory than before the start of the conflict. Al Jazeera, Anadolu Ajansi
