The Israeli aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip entered its 282nd day, with the Zionist occupation forces continuing to commit genocide in the Gaza Strip through dozens of airstrikes, artillery shelling, and bloody massacres against civilians.

Continuing massacres... occupation forces bombard a school for displaced people in the Nuseirat camp.

The occupation continues its aggression on Gaza, as its warplanes bombed the Abu Urbaan School belonging to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), which houses a large number of displaced people in the Nuseirat camp. This resulted in the martyrdom of at least 15 citizens and the injury of dozens, most of whom are children and women.

The Gaza Government Media Office stated that the occupation army committed a terrible massacre against the displaced people in the Abu Urbaan School in the Nuseirat camp, resulting in the martyrdom of 15 and the injury of 80.

The office added that this massacre is part of the ongoing genocide being committed by the occupation army against the Palestinian people for the tenth consecutive month.

The office pointed out that these massacres come amidst the occupation's destruction of the healthcare system, burning hospitals and putting them out of service. This is in addition to the immense pressure on medical teams and the remaining surgical operating rooms, shortage of health and medical supplies, closure of crossings preventing the travel of the wounded and patients, as well as the lack of fuel, all in the midst of the catastrophic humanitarian and health conditions.

The Gaza office strongly condemned the occupation's commission of this terrible massacre and massacres against civilians, as well as the alignment of the American administration with the occupation in the crime of genocide.

The Gaza office held the Israeli occupation and the American administration fully responsible for continuing these massacres against the displaced people and civilians.

It called on the international community, the United Nations, and various international organizations and all free countries in the world to pressure the Israeli occupation and the American administration to stop the genocide and stop the flow of blood in the Gaza Strip.

141 martyrs in one day.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that the Israeli occupation committed 4 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip, resulting in the martyrdom of 141 and 400 injuries in the past 24 hours.

The ministry confirmed that the toll of the aggression has risen to 38,584 martyrs and 88,881 injuries since October 7th.

Resistance operations continue

The Palestinian resistance continues to confront the Zionist forces advancing on multiple fronts in Gaza, as the Al-Qassam Brigades announced today the detection of a special Zionist force infiltrating disguised inside a relief truck.

Al-Qassam added that when the force reached the project intersection east of Rafah and entered a house, our fighters engaged directly with them from zero distance with light weapons and individual shells, resulting in all members being either killed or injured.

Resistance factions: Palestinian Authority equates between the victim and the perpetrator

The Palestinian resistance factions condemned statements issued in the name of the Palestinian Authority presidency that absolve the occupation of its crimes and equate between the victim and the perpetrator, providing justification for the occupation army and its crimes against the Palestinian people, and holding the resistance responsible for these massacres.

In a statement,  Hamas  clarified that the statements of the Palestinian Authority come at a time when Palestinian blood is flowing due to the horrific massacres committed by the Nazi occupation army against our people. The Massacres that happened in the outskirts of Khan Younis, in the White Mosque in the Beach Camp, and other areas of the Gaza Strip, where hundreds have been killed.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine considered the statements of the Authority to be offensive and justifying the occupation's brutal crimes, providing it with a free service to evade responsibility by portraying that a segment of Palestinians support its justifications.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine pointed out that there is a wide popular and national solidarity with the resistance, requiring all national forces, including Fatah movement and the Authority leadership, to commit to the national consensus position and stand firmly alongside the resistance.

Haniya: Occupation's allegations about targeting Al-Deif are false

Deputy Head of Hamas Movement in Gaza, Khalil Al-Hayya, refuted the allegations of the occupation's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about targeting Commander Mohammed Al-Deif.

Al-Hayya, in an interview with Al Jazeera, affirmed that what Netanyahu said about not knowing about the fate of the targeting of the leader Mohammed Al-Deif, and the leader Raafat Salama as he claimed, is a clear indication of the failure of this false targeting and an attempt by the criminal army to market its crimes against our people.

He stated : "Netanyahu's allegations are false, and Netanyahu wished to announce a fake victory in his pathetic conference, adding: Mohammed Al-Deif hears you now and mocks your empty false statements."

Hamas denies halting negotiations

A member of Hamas Political Bureau, Azat al-Rashq, affirmed that the report published by the French news agency and circulated by some media outlets about a decision within Hamas to halt negotiations in response to the massacre in the outskirts of Khan Younis is not true.

Al-Rashq explained today, Sunday, that this Nazi escalation against our people by Netanyahu and his Nazi government, one of its goals is to block any agreement to stop aggression against our people, which has become clear to everyone.

 

The French newspaper "Le Monde" published a report emphasizing the negative effects caused by Israeli occupation on higher education in Gaza, whereas all 12 universities in the region have been destroyed or seriously damaged.

The newspaper" reported how the Israeli occupation forces had destroyed all the institutions of higher education within the Palestinian territory killing three university presidents, some 100 deans, and university professors killed by Israeli force.

According to Bisan Al-Qulagh, gaining admission to a university in Gaza, for example, was hailed as a "gateway to independence" for Palestinians. She remembers how ecstatic she was, receiving the call with the news of her acceptance into the Clinical Pharmacy program in September 2021. Now, her university is nothing but a heap of rubble: the Israeli army bombed and eradicated it in December 2023, two months after the war on Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation army has, since destroyed or damaged, making strikes and shelling, 12 universities in Gaza. It is such that, almost 75% of the educational infrastructure regions stand to be affected, included in the above-listed educational establishments, the United Nations notes.

"Gaza used to be very beautiful. My university, not far from the sea, was very wonderful. Before October 7th, Gaza was that place," said Bisan, a 20-year-old student of Gaza. In Sharjah, which is in the United Arab Emirates, her father works. She said that while a bachelor's degree takes three years in this Gulf emirate, and more so in her case, "100,000 dirhams (25,000 euros)" would be lost and concluded, "We didn't have [the resources]," and this would probably explain why she was beside herself on obtaining a seat at one the universities in Gaza.

"I no longer know what to do with my life"

At eighteen years of age, she left the house of her parents and went on to live with her grandparents in the city of Gaza, residing very near to the university campus. Bisan had got accustomed to sharing videos of herself with friends through her Instagram, either at the university, in the classroom with friends, or even in the laboratory breathing in chemistry.

She had landed in Abu Dhabi at the end of February and was evacuated with her mother and sisters. "The two years I spent at the University of Palestine were the best thing that ever happened in my life. Today, I don't have a clue what my future will turn out to be. What would happen to two years of my studies that have no value anymore? Have they all gone to waste?" she asked.

Killing Over 95 Deans and Professors

Hence, the war in Gaza has changed the relationships between Israeli secular and religious. The Israeli strikes in Gaza were declared by the Geneva-based Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Observatory, which published that these have destroyed the higher education infrastructures. Furthermore, It was calculated to be more than 200 million euros. It has killed at least three university presidents since October 7th, over 95 deans and professors, and forced around 88,000 students to suspend studies, joined by 555 other students deprived of travel abroad due to the violations.

Al-Isra University

In the first days of the invasion, the Israeli occupying forces converted some facilities in Gaza into barracks or prison cells before destroying them. The Al-Isra University, destroyed on the 17th of this month during bombardment, belongs to this group, images of which were shared on social networks. The management of the center affirms that, before the detonation, troops took ancient artifacts from the national museum installed in one of the wings of the institution.

This is what October 7th did. What if that hadn't happened, too? Also, its main campus is located in Gaza City, and one of its branch campuses is in the Maghazi area; all three of these facilities were bombed in three successive air strikes on October 11th, 4th, and 21st of November 2023. Before October 7th, Karam Jad Allah had just turned 22 and was a student majoring in French and English literature at Al-Azhar University. He intended to apply for a Master's degree in Law to a university in Brussels.

"We had top-level professors," said the young man, now a refugee in Rafah, where he distributes food for a charitable organization in the area. "Millions of dollars were invested in recent buildings in my university. There were a lot of trees. We used to have top-line professors. Sometimes after losing something, you come to realize how valuable it was."

 Differently, Zuheer Khaleel - the founder and first president of the Palestine University who fled from the sector to Egypt in November thanks to his British citizenship, repeats: "This senseless bloody war. " it is noteworthy to mention that Zaheer is a civil engineering doctor from a British university who went in 1989 to give his lectures in Gaza. He had seen many other wars shake the coastal region, but the scale of the current war greatly worried him about the future.

Khaleel told University World News: "What is happening in Gaza is a war on education. We built the academic infrastructure with our sweat, blood, and thanks to donations. It took us a long time to prepare the labs at our university since the equipment had to pass through Israeli customs. We have not completed our work to repair the damage from the previous war, in 2014. How long shall it take this time to rebuild everything?"

Among the most prestigious universities in the sector, the newspaper notes, was the Islamic University in Gaza, where, 68 years old, and a teacher in English literature, worked Akram Habib. The professor, who left for Turkey, says, "We created an elite in Gaza. My former students became ambassadors, lawyers, engineers, police officers, and teachers. And today, many of them have been killed."

Can the Israeli assassination campaign against Hamas have unexpected outcomes? The newspaper noted that "the college was a stronghold of pro-Hamas activities as the place where most of the executive directors of the movement studied, was bombed on October 11th, 2023." Habib responds to this, saying, "The Israelis say Hamas founded it, which is not true. But if this is true then why were other universities targeted in that manner? Why do we see Israeli soldiers photographed in front of its destroyed facilities? We can only think that this war has only one goal: to turn Gaza into an uninhabitable area."

  

  

Operation "Storm of Al-Aqsa" entered its 281st day, with the Israeli occupation forces continuing to commit genocide in the Gaza Strip, through dozens of airstrikes, artillery bombardment, and bloody massacres against civilians.

A horrific massacre in the Moasi area of Khan Yunis

The occupation continues its aggression on Gaza, where it committed a horrific massacre against displaced persons in the Moasi area of Khan Yunis in the southern part of the Strip. More than 71 martyrs and more than 289 wounded, including serious cases, were reported by the Ministry of Health in Gaza.

The Palestinian Media Center reported that the occupation army targeted a residential building with six missiles on the main road between the Nas Intersection and Al-Aqsa University roundabout in the Moasi area of Khan Yunis. The occupation had previously designated it as a safe area before launching fiery belts and shelling the tents of the displaced persons and civil defense teams that arrived to rescue them.

Sources said that the civil defense teams went to rescue the displaced persons in the Moasi massacre in Khan Yunis and were targeted, resulting in the deaths and injuries of many of them.

The Gaza government media office said that the Israeli army committed a major massacre by shelling the camps of the displaced persons in Khan Yunis (southern Gaza Strip), which resulted in over 100 martyrs and wounded, including members and officers of the civil defense, in preliminary toll.

The office added that government and relief teams are still pulling out dozens of martyrs and wounded from the site of the bombing and targeting. This massacre comes at a time when there are no hospitals capable of receiving this large number of martyrs and wounded, and coinciding with the destruction of the health system in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation forces also committed a second massacre by targeting a mosque near the White Mosque in the Beach refugee camp in Gaza City, resulting in the death of at least 20 citizens and injuring dozens, according to the Palestinian Media Center.

"Hamas": The Moasi massacre is a continuation of Nazi genocide

The Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas" affirmed that the Moasi massacre in Khan Yunis is a continuation of the Nazi genocide against our people, pointing out that the American administration is a direct partner in this crime.

In a statement today, Hamas condemned in the strongest terms the horrific Moasi massacre in Khan Yunis, constituting a dangerous escalation in the series of unprecedented crimes and massacres in the history of wars, committed in the Gaza Strip by the new Nazis.

Hamas stated that this heinous massacre committed by the Israeli occupation army targeted the Moasi area west of Khan Yunis, an area classified by the occupation army as "safe zones." The citizens were called to move to it, where the occupation's aircraft, artillery, and drones intensively and continuously targeted the tents of the displaced persons with various types of weapons, resulting in hundreds of martyrs and wounded among innocent civilians.

 Hamas added that the Mawasi massacre in Khan Yunis; Which targeted an area crowded with more than eighty thousand displaced people. A clear confirmation from the Zionist government that it is continuing its war of extermination against our Palestinian people. A war of extermination through the repeated and systematic targeting of defenseless civilians, in tents, displacement centers and residential neighborhoods, and committing the most heinous crimes against them, ignoring calls to stop targeting innocent civilians, or paying attention to any of the laws of war that require their protection.

Hamas emphasized that this disregard for the law and international treaties, and the widespread violations against innocent civilians, would not have continued without the support provided by the American administration to the extremist Zionist government and its terrorist army. They cover up their crimes, provide them with all means of political and military support, and handicap the international justice from fulfilling its role towards these crimes, making it a full partner in them.

"Hamas": Occupation claims of targeting leaders are false

The Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas" stated that the occupation's claims of targeting leaders are false.

The movement clarified in a press statement that this is not the first time the occupation claims to have targeted Palestinian leaders, only for their lies to be exposed later.

"Hamas": The occupation's atrocities in Tel al-Hawa are war crimes, genocide, and ethnic cleansing

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) affirmed that the fascistic crimes of the occupation in Tel al-Hawa, such as executing the elderly and children in their homes, are heinous violations and despicable behaviors that require urgent international accountability.

The movement stated in a press release on Friday that the atrocities revealed following the withdrawal of the terrorist occupation army from Tel al-Hawa in southwest Gaza City, after days of intense shelling and targeting of all aspects of life, are war crimes, genocide, and ethnic cleansing.

It added that the occupation army set fire to residential buildings before leaving Tel al-Hawa, prevented the civil defense from accessing the buildings that were set on fire with families inside, and recovered the bodies of entire families killed in Tel al-Hawa due to the Israeli shelling, confirming that the occupation army committed brutal massacres and atrocities that shame humanity.

 Hamas pointed out that the shocking scenes of cold-blooded executions of innocent elderly Palestinians inside their homes violate all human values. Among those who were executed by Israeli soldiers were three elderly women from the Al-Ghalaiani family, in addition to cases of executing isolated civilians including children. Hamas emphasized that this fascist Zionist army and its criminal leaders, who kill children, women, and elders, follow despicable and cowardly behavior.

Hamas further stated that these heinous crimes are happening in front of the eyes and ears of the United Nations, the international community, and its institutions, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, which must take urgent action to stop the genocide war waged by the occupation against our people. In this war, endless violations of all values, traditions, laws, and international treaties are practiced, without the Zionist terrorists' government facing any real deterrent step to end these atrocities.

Kuwaiti novelist Abdullah Al-Husseini won the Ghassan Kanafani Award for Arabic Novel in its third edition, which was announced last Monday, for his novel "The Remaining Tattoo", published by Takhayyal Publications in Kuwait in 2022.

Five novels made it to the shortlist of this year's edition, announced by the Palestinian Ministry of Culture in June, including works from Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, Kuwait, and the Palestinian territories.

The judging committee for the prize this year was formed under the chairmanship of the Moroccan critic and novelist Ahmed Medini, with the membership of the Jordanian novelist Samahe Khreis, the Egyptian critic Mohamed El-Shahat, the writer Ziad Abu-Laban, and the critic Riyad Kamel from Palestine.

Committee member Riyad Kamel said: "The winning novel is characterized by strong and coherent writing, and a distinctive ability of a young novelist, still at the age of 24, who excelled in portraying characters and constructing them firmly, harmonizing with the time and place, reminding us of our great writer Ghassan Kanafani, who left us at an early age."

The Palestinian Ministry of Culture recently announced the novels that made it to the long list, which included 14 novels by authors from 10 Arab countries, followed by the announcement of the novels that made it to the shortlist, which included 5 novels.

The announced novels are "2067" by the Egyptian novelist Saad El-Qarsh, "A Necessary Pain" by the Palestinian novelist Abdullah Taih, "The Remaining Tattoo" by the Kuwaiti novelist Abdullah Al-Husseini, "The Imam's Spring" by the Omani novelist Mohamed Saif Al-Rahbi, and "Barlatras" by the Tunisian novelist Nasr Sami.

The Palestinian Ministry of Culture launched the award in 2022, on the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Ghassan Kanafani (1936-1972), which was previously won by the Egyptian Amr Hussein and the Syrian Magyra Al-Hawidi.

Ghassan Kanafani was deeply immersed in the Palestinian cause until it became a part of his identity. He expressed his deep love for Palestine and defended it by saying: "We have a cause we fight for, and that is too much." He added, "The Palestinian people prefer death standing rather than losing their cause. This people will continue to fight until victory, and will never be defeated."

Kanafani, the Palestinian novelist, short story writer, and journalist, was assassinated by the Israeli Mossad on July 8, 1972, at the age of 36. His car was bombed in the Hazmiyeh area near Beirut, killing his 19-year-old niece Lamis. Kanafani was a member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

The Prime Minister of the occupation at that time, Golda Meir, commented on the assassination by saying: "Today we got rid of an armed intellectual brigade, as Ghassan with his pen posed a greater threat to 'Israel' than a thousand armed militants." Meir had issued a decision that year to eliminate many prominent Palestinian leaders.

On the anniversary of his assassination, Palestinians remember Kanafani's writings, ideas, and sacrifices, affirming the continuation of the path he started and passing on his writings and works that have been a source of inspiration for generations.

Kanafani expressed the achievement of the Palestinian people by saying: "We have told the world that we are a small and brave people, and we will fight until the last drop of blood to bring justice to us after the world failed to do so." He described the peace talks with 'Israel' as "surrender" and talking to the occupation leaders as "a conversation between the sword and the neck."

Kanafani carried the revolutionary thought and expressed it through literature, media, and politics. He conveyed his voice by teaching refugees in the camps, through novels and books, and in his articles published in "Al-Ra'i" magazine affiliated with the Arab nationalists movement, and "Al-Hadaf" magazine speaking on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Kanafani mainly wrote about Palestinian liberation issues.

He was beloved by all Palestinian factions, and had a large popular base. He always called for sticking to the Palestinian cause, saying: "Ultimately, a human being is a cause; if we are unsuccessful defenders of the cause, it is more fitting for us to change the defenders, not the cause."

In 1948, Kanafani and his family were forced to flee and witnessed the Nakba in his childhood. They escaped on foot and lived in Syria, then in Lebanon where he obtained Lebanese citizenship. He completed his secondary education in Damascus and obtained the Syrian secondary certificate in 1952. In the same year, he joined the Faculty of Arabic Literature at Damascus University and presented a thesis titled "Race and Religion in Zionist Literature".

He discontinued his studies at the end of the second year and joined the Arab nationalist movement. He moved to Kuwait where he worked in elementary education, then moved to Beirut to work for the magazine "Al-Hurriya" as head of the cultural section, then became the editor-in-chief of the Lebanese newspaper "Al-Muharrir", where he issued a "Palestine Supplement". He later moved to work for the Lebanese newspaper "Al-Anwar". When the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine was founded in 1967, he established the magazine "Al-Hadaf" in its name and became its official spokesperson.

His literary production was interactive with his life and the lives of people. In his novel "Returning to Haifa", he described the journey of Haifa citizens to Akka, which he experienced as a child. In "Men in the Sun", Kanafani derived inspiration from his life and the lives of Palestinians in Kuwait, depicting his return to Damascus through the desert, portraying the plight of Palestinians and the transformation of their cause into a matter of survival.

Kanafani left behind three unfinished novels published after his martyrdom: "The Lover", "The Blind and the Deaf", and "Apricot Blossom". He also left important studies such as "Resistance Literature in Palestine", "Zionist Literature", and "Resistant Palestinian Literature".

After his assassination, Kanafani left behind his Danish wife who became an advocate for Palestine, and two children, Fayez and Leila.

"Al-Nouri Charitable Society" hosted a public food bank to support underprivileged groups in Kuwait.

The Sheikh Abdullah Al-Nouri Charitable Society implemented the food bank for the benefit of needy families with generous support from the General Secretariat of Awqaf.

Abdul Latif Alduwas, the Director of Resources and Media Sector at Al-Nouri Charitable Society, stated in a press release that the society implemented the public food bank through a well-planned strategy to assist widows, orphans, patients, and low-income individuals by providing them with basic food necessities.

Furthermore, activating the role of a Muslim towards their fellow Muslim, and striving to meet their needs due to the great virtue and reward associated with it.

Alduwas explained that Al-Nouri Charitable Society is keen on upholding accuracy and integrity in executing these projects, starting from studying social cases and sorting them in a short period, to supervising the project in all its aspects to achieve its goals.

In conclusion, Alduwas praised the fruitful and constructive cooperation between the society and the General Secretariat of Awqaf in implementing several charitable projects to assist needy and poor families in Kuwait. One of these projects is the public food bank, expressing gratitude to the General Secretariat for their continuous support for charitable and humanitarian projects and activities within and outside Kuwait, which significantly contributes to serving charitable work, supporting it, and ensuring its continuity.

The occupation army orders the evacuation of Gaza City

The occupation army on Wednesday demanded that the residents of Gaza City evacuate to Deir al-Balah and Az-Zawayda in central Gaza, threatening that Gaza City "will remain a dangerous combat zone".

The army, in leaflets dropped by its aircraft in various areas of Gaza, said: To all those in Gaza City, the safe passage will enable you to pass quickly and without inspection from Gaza City to shelters in Deir al-Balah and Az-Zawayda.

Despite claiming that they are safe areas, the occupation army continues to target areas in Deir al-Balah and Az-Zawayda, resulting in the killing and injuring of Palestinians, according to Al-Jazeera Net.

"Hamas": Heinous crimes against our prisoners in occupation prisons

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) confirmed that the horrifying testimonies given by released detainees, and the visible signs of brutal practices on their bodies, as well as the condition of the recently released detainees, journalist Muaadh Amarna and athlete Muath Abu Yat, confirm the extent of serious violations and heinous crimes committed in prisons and detention centers.

The movement stated in a press release today, Wednesday, that what the prisoner Moaz Abu Ayyad mentioned about the terrorist Ben Ghafeer participating in brutal torture operations confirms the level of sadism he carries, along with members of this government immersed in extremism and fascism. It emphasized that what our prisoners are exposed to in occupation prisons far exceeds all the brutality that detainees in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisons endure, confirming that the occupation government and its army are unethical, and that they have flouted all agreements and international laws regarding the treatment of prisoners.

 Hamas emphasized that this criminal behavior of the Nazi occupation government requires immediate intervention from the international community, the International Court of Justice, the United Nations, and its institutions. It also calls for the formation of committees to inspect these detention centers and investigate the violations committed therein. Therefore, war criminals from the occupation leaders must be brought to international justice and held accountable for these crimes.

It called on the sons of our Palestinian people in occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank to escalate their clashes with the occupation soldiers and settlers in support of our prisoners, until their liberation and the breaking of the criminal occupation's shackles on them and on our land and sanctities.

Hebrew media reported that Mossad chief David Berneir, Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar, and army hostage office head Gal Hirsch will travel to the Qatari capital, Doha, today, Wednesday, for talks on the prisoner exchange deal, amid "Israeli" reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deliberately thwarted reaching a deal.

While the agency quoted a participant in the exchange negotiations as saying: The current opportunity to reach an exchange deal may not be repeated, the newspaper "Yedioth Ahronoth" reported that the parties involved will try to summarize the issues in which progress has been made and resolve as many disputes as possible.

This comes amidst reports of the participation of CIA Director William Burns, Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, and Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel, according to Al Jazeera website.

Testimonies of Zionist soldiers documenting occupation army crimes

The website "+972", based in Tel Aviv, published testimonies of 6 soldiers about the massacres committed by the occupation army against civilians in Gaza, according to Anadolu.

The soldiers said: The army routinely executes Palestinian civilians for entering areas it considers restricted zones, and added that the bodies of dead civilians are left to rot and be eaten by stray animals, and they pointed out that the army hid these bodies before international aid convoys arrived.

Two of the soldiers mentioned witnessing a policy of burning Palestinian homes systematically after occupation.

A soldier who participated in attacks in Gaza said: If there is a feeling of threat, there is no need for explanation, just shoot, according to the same source, and the soldier explained how Palestinian civilians were targeted, saying: Even anyone looking at the soldiers from the window was regarded as a suspect and shot at.

Another soldier added that the "Israeli" army fired intensively in seemingly abandoned places without reason, and said that such orders come directly from field leaders, sometimes happening even if there is no order from higher levels.

Another soldier talked about the method used in the war on Gaza: Hit first, ask questions later, that was the consensus, if we destroy a house without cause or shoot someone when we are not forced to do so, then no one will shed tears.

The Israeli criminal war on the besieged Gaza Strip entered its 277th day, with the Zionist occupation forces continuing to commit acts of genocide in Gaza through dozens of airstrikes, artillery shelling, and bloody massacres against civilians.

Here are the highlights of the latest developments:

Massacre in Al-Nusairat

The occupation army continues its aggression on Gaza, where it committed a horrific massacre west of the Al-Nusairat refugee camp in the middle of Gaza, resulting in the deaths of 17 martyrs from the Abu Freih family, including 14 children and a woman, according to the government media office.

The office stated that this massacre comes simultaneously with the occupation committing 6 massacres in central camps, raising the number of martyrs to 29 within hours, most of whom are children and women. This is part of the genocide being carried out by the occupation army against our Palestinian people for the tenth consecutive month.

Additionally, 9 citizens, mostly children, were martyred as a result of a Zionist airstrike on Al-Bureij refugee camp in the middle of Gaza.

Al-Jazeera reported, citing medical sources that the number of martyrs has risen to 44 due to the continuous Israeli shelling on Gaza since dawn.

The ministry confirmed in its daily update that the toll of the aggression has risen to 38,243 martyrs and 88,033 injuries since October 7th.

Warning against occupation calls to evacuate from Gaza City

The government media office in Gaza warned the people of the sector against the occupation's calls to evacuate from Gaza City to the south to lure them into death traps, killings, and field executions.

The office stated that the occupation army is disseminating misleading maps that call on our Palestinian people to evacuate from Gaza City to the south to allegedly safe areas, confirming that these calls are nothing but false calls endangering the lives of citizens.

The office added that the occupation aims, behind these false calls, to lure citizens into death traps, killings, and field executions, similar to what has repeatedly occurred with dozens of field execution operations against citizens who tried to evacuate to Al-Rashid Street west of Gaza City and on Salah al-Din Street east of Gaza City. The occupation called on citizens to evacuate towards the central and southern regions of the sector, then carried out cold-blooded executions upon their arrival at military checkpoints, opening fire and resulting in dozens of martyrs and hundreds of wounded and injured.

The office confirmed that repeating these grave mistakes and tragedies makes citizens pay the price with their blood and lives, and that the plans of the Israeli occupation are exposed and evident to all the great Palestinian people.

The siege war continues

Hamas confirmed that the terrorist occupation government continues the siege war and starvation against our people in Gaza. Israel has been preventing the entry of food aid trucks for the sixty-fourth consecutive day, and settler groups are deliberately burning aid at the Kerem Abu Salem crossing.

The movement emphasized in a statement today, Tuesday, that the behavior of the enemy government and settler groups constitutes the worst form of starvation war against isolated civilians, who have been facing a comprehensive genocide for over nine months.

The movement stated: "The humanitarian disaster and famine, especially expanding and intensifying in Gaza and the north, are the result of a continuous Zionist decision, supported by the complicit US administration, to prevent the means of life from our people in the sector, despite international decisions and the orders of the International Court of Justice. International institutions have emphasized the necessity of delivering necessary aid to all areas of the Gaza Strip, which is a complete disregard for the international system and its decisions."

 The movement pointed out that continuing the war of starvation threatens a humanitarian catastrophe. It also warns of the fall of more innocent children and civilians. The movement called on the international community to take immediate action to force the occupation to allow aid and relief to enter without obstacles. It called for restraining this criminal enemy, subjecting it to international laws, and bringing its criminal leaders to international courts to be held accountable for their monstrous crimes against civilians.

Resistance Operations Highlights

The Palestinian resistance continues to confront Zionist forces in several axes in Gaza, where the Al-Qassam Brigades announced on Tuesday targeting 4 Israeli tanks of the "Merkava 4" type with "Yassin 105" shells in Baghdad Street in the Shujaiya neighborhood east of Gaza City.

They also stated that our fighters were able to detonate a minefield in two Israeli military bulldozers of the "D9" type, causing them to burn completely near the Khalid ibn al-Walid Mosque in the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood in Gaza City.

The Al-Qassam fighters also managed to detonate an anti-personnel mine among the occupation soldiers, causing casualties near the Riyadh Tower west of the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood in Gaza City.

They also announced targeting the "Nir Eshak" settlement with a missile barrage, in addition to shelling with mortar shells targeting the deployment of soldiers and vehicles of the Zionist enemy near the Abd Jabr area south of the Yibna camp in Rafah City.

Lapid: Netanyahu has lost control of the war

Israeli opposition leader Yair Lapid said on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lost control of everything, including his government.

Lapid added in a statement to Israeli radio station "FM 103", according to Anadolu Agency: "Netanyahu has lost control of everything, of the political system, the war, and foreign relations, and has lost control of his government."

Lapid criticized the conditions of the prisoner exchange deal with Hamas issued by the Prime Minister's office, saying: "It causes unnecessary harm, it complicates negotiations without Netanyahu intentionally making them complicated."

During his radio interview, Lapid defended his decision to grant Netanyahu's government an extension in the Knesset in case of reaching a prisoner exchange agreement and the resignation of National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich due to the agreement.

He added: "Perhaps this will lead to prolonging the life of the most failed government in the country's history, but I will do it to bring back the abducted because that is more important than anything else."

Ben Gvir joins the War Council

The Hebrew broadcasting authority reported on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secretly approved the extremist National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir's entry into the War Council.

Sources close to Ben Gvir said that Netanyahu secretly approved the minister's request to join the limited security forum of the cabinet.

The sources added that "Netanyahu requested not to announce his approval" of the extremist right-wing minister's joining the cabinet.

The Israeli Nazi war on the besieged Gaza Strip entered its 276th day, with the Zionist occupation forces continuing to commit genocide in Gaza through dozens of aerial bombings, artillery shelling, and bloody massacres against civilians.

Residents of Gaza were surprised by the incursion west of the city after evacuation orders were issued yesterday evening for the eastern Gaza area and the Daraj and Tuffah neighborhoods, where those areas witnessed a large wave of displacement towards the shelter centers to the west, while the western area witnessed intense airstrikes and a ground incursion.

Local sources also pointed out that the occupation forces stormed the headquarters of UNRWA in Gaza after carrying out a series of intense airstrikes and launching smoke bombs in its vicinity, and are still stationed there.

He confirmed, saying: "We are losing an entire generation in Gaza," calling for the need to return children to a safe educational environment.

"Hamas": Escalation of Occupation is insistence on a genocide war

 Hamas stated that the Zionist occupation army's increasing aggression in Gaza City, displacing many civilian residents with brutal shelling, shows a continued genocidal war against Palestinians for over nine months, in defiance of international laws.

In a press release on Monday, the movement declared that the enemy, backed by the American administration, will not be able to defeat our people, and our resistance will persist until driving them away from our land, despite their brutal actions.

It advised the international community and the United Nations to take action to stop the occupation army from increasing its killings of civilians, as the health sector is being destroyed and hospitals are being shut down. The leaders of the occupation should be held responsible for their crimes against our people.

The Hebrew newspaper quoted Brick as saying: "If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejects the deal again, it will be like a nuclear bomb dropped on us, and we will lose the captives forever and be on the brink of a regional war."

He added: "If the Israeli army is unable to defeat Hamas, then it is certain that it will not be able to defeat Hezbollah.

The criminal war waged by Israel on the besieged Gaza Strip entered its 275th day, with the Zionist occupation forces continuing to commit genocide in Gaza through dozens of airstrikes, artillery shelling, and bloody massacres against civilians. Here are the highlights of the latest developments:

 In a statement released today, Sunday, the movement announced that Al-Ghusain was killed alongside a group of our people in Gaza after enduring 275 days of aggression and genocide. Despite facing imminent danger and losing family members, he remained steadfast in serving his people in his noble national role. By doing this, he exemplified challenge, steadfastness, and resilience in response to occupation injustices, aggression, and crimes.

"Hamas" affirmed the failure of the occupation's plans to break the resilience and determination of our people, or to disrupt the governmental system that shares the suffering of war and aggression with our great people.

Resistance Operations Highlighted

The Palestinian resistance continues to confront Zionist forces in several axes in Gaza, where the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced on Sunday targeting the "Merkava 4" tank with a "Yassin 105" shell on Baghdad Street in the Shujaiya neighborhood in eastern Gaza City.

It added that it targeted the "Merkava 4" tank with a "Shawath" explosive device near the Abdullah bin Omar Mosque in the Tal al-Sultan neighborhood in Rafah city, south of the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, "Al-Qassam" targeted a "Merkava 4" tank and two Zionist military vehicles with "Yassin 105" shells in the middle of the Tal al-Sultan neighborhood in Rafah city, south of the Gaza Strip.

They also targeted the regular enemy soldiers stationed at the Rafah crossing gate and its surroundings with mortar shells, indicating their cooperation with the Al-Nasser Salah Al-Din Brigades in bombarding the enemy’s gatherings at the military site of "Nahal Oz" with rocket fire.

Abu Ubaida: We enhanced our defensive capabilities to confront the occupation

 Abu Ubaida, the spokesperson for the Al-Qassam Brigades, mentioned that it has been 9 months since the start of the "Aqsa Flood" battle on October 7 of the previous year, with our people still enduring aggression and genocide from the Nazi-Zionist-Americans for defending their land, beliefs, and right to resist the occupiers to reclaim their rights.

In a broadcast on Al-Jazeera, Abu Ubaida stated that nine months later, we reiterate that the Aqsa Flood battle did not mark the start of our resistance or the occupation's aggression. Instead, it was a reaction to decades of oppression, injustice, and tyranny from Zionist gangs towards people, stones, trees, land, and sanctities.

He revealed that the human capabilities of the Al-Qassam Brigades are in good shape, saying: During the war, we were able to recruit thousands of new fighters.

He also said: What was recently revealed in the enemy's circles about the catastrophic failure on October 7 is trivial compared to what we will reveal at the appropriate time, by the permission of Allah. We will reveal documents that will be harsher and more difficult, showing how we were able to execute a complex strategic deception of the Shin Bet and the enemy's security system for years.

He pointed out that the peak of aggression reached with a Zionist government that the world sees today openly denying the existence of a Palestinian people, practicing systematic cleansing and extermination in the West Bank, Jerusalem, and Gaza, inciting against the Palestinian presence within the occupied 1948 territories.

Abu Ubaida said: Our people's understanding of the nature of this battle and the operation of Al-Aqsa Flood is reflected in the independent opinion polls that have shown after months of aggression how our people in Gaza and the West Bank overwhelmingly support the Al-Aqsa Flood operation and rally around its resistance.

He added: For 9 months, our resistance has not tired, surrendered, or been defeated. We continue to fight in Gaza without external support or supplies of weapons and equipment. Our people continue to endure without food, water, or medicine, under a cruel genocidal war.

Abu Ubaida continued: Gaza is entering history through the widest gates of glory as the greatest model of freedom known to humanity in modern times and as an inspiring school for every free person, resistor, and human in the world.

He addressed our people, our nation, and all the free people of the world, saying: Our fighters and resistors have been engaging in epic battles for 9 months, hitting the enemy's targets and defeating its armed forces supported by the US and UK, the aggressors and oppressors.

He emphasized that our fighters are using human shields, deceiving them with safe zones and then bombing them, targeting civilian homes, hospitals, international organizations, schools, civilian shelters, intentionally destroying artifacts, historical areas, mosques, churches, cemeteries, and libraries. This happens in plain sight of the world and on live broadcasts from Gaza, showing the lies of international organizations and the failures of selective international justice.

Abu Ubaida said: Our fighters are fighting with determination, inventing means and tactics, facing the enemy with great fighting spirit and unparalleled belief, as if they were from the time of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. They receive miracles and steadfastness from God that words cannot describe, and God's saying is true: "And those who strive for Us - We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good."

He stressed that over the past 9 months, thanks to Allah, all our brigades and all combat support weapons fought from the farthest point of Beit Hanoun in the north to the farthest point of Rafah in the south. We fought with the factions of the resistance as brothers in arms and jihad.

He added: Our brigades have engaged in successive battles and operations and continue to do so. Each time, the performance of our fighters advances, evolves, and grows. Our fighters inflict more wounds on the enemy and learn from their experiences each time. We have offered up pure martyrs from soldiers and leaders of all levels, but the flag will not fall, with the help of Allah.
