Gaza City, January 19 (RHC)-- Dozens of Palestinian civilians, including women and children, have been killed and many others wounded in a fresh round of Israeli strikes against the Gaza Strip as the occupying regime’s genocidal war on the besieged territory lingers on for the 105th day.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA said on Friday that the casualties took place over the past hours following Israel’s ongoing airstrikes, shelling and naval bombardment targeting multiple areas of Gaza.

“Medical sources confirmed the murder of 77 civilians and the injury of dozens more in the recent hours as a result of the ongoing Israeli aggression across the territory, bringing the total number of martyrs since the beginning of the Israeli war to over 24,620, in addition to more than 6,1830 injured and thousands missing,” the news agency said.

WAFA stressed that at least 12 civilians were killed as Israeli warplanes targeted a residential apartment near al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza, adding, several civilians were also injured in a regime’s airstrike that hit al-Noor Mosque in the al-Sabra neighborhood of Gaza.

“Israeli naval forces shelled the coast of Gaza City and the northern areas of the Strip,” the news agency said. “Israeli warplanes and artillery further targeted various areas in the northern region of the Strip, including the town of Jabalia and its refugee camp.”

Palestinian media also reported that eight civilians were killed and an unspecified number of others were injured in the Israeli fighter jets’ overnight raids on houses in the west of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza.

Israeli tanks and military vehicles were reported to have stormed the vicinity of the Nasser Medical Complex, while the Israeli artillery shelled the surroundings of al-Amal Hospital, which is run by the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, in Khan Yunis.

The Israeli occupation forces were also said to have blown up and demolished residential homes in the southern part of Khan Yunis.
