Prominent Updates on the 110th Day of the Ongoing Israeli Aggression on Gaza Featured


Continued Resistance

During the 110th day of the Israeli war on Gaza, Palestinian resistance groups continued their operations against the occupation forces. They focused on fighting in Khan Yunis, a city in the southern Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, the International Court of Justice announced that it will soon issue a decision on a lawsuit filed by South Africa against Israel.

Al-Qassam Brigades

The military wing of Hamas, called the Al-Qassam Brigades, reported that they detonated a booby-trapped house in Khan Yunis. This action killed and injured a group of soldiers who were hiding inside. The Al-Qassam Brigades also clashed with a support force that arrived at the scene, resulting in the death of more than 10 soldiers.

Al-Quds Brigades

The military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, known as the Al-Quds Brigades, announced that they targeted an Israeli tank in Khan Yunis. This operation was carried out in collaboration with the Al-Qassam Brigades.

Injuries and Casualties

The Israeli army reported that 21 soldiers were injured in the Gaza battles over the past 24 hours. This brings the total number of injured soldiers since the start of the aggression on Gaza to 2,710. Among them, 1,250 are officers and soldiers who were injured during the ground attack, with 406 currently undergoing treatment and 40 in serious condition.

On the other hand, medical sources stated that 30 people were killed and 50 were wounded in Khan Yunis since Wednesday morning.

Attack on UNRWA Shelter

In Khan Yunis, an Israeli bombing targeted a shelter center run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). This center housed thousands of displaced people. The attack resulted in the death of 14 people and the injury of many others. The buildings caught fire, trapping people inside. The occupation forces prevented safe access to the area, making the situation even more dangerous.

Developments in the West Bank

In the occupied West Bank, the Israeli forces continued to raid several cities and arrest Palestinians. The Hamas movement called on Qatar and Egypt to intervene and secure the release of a prisoner who was previously released in a deal but was re-arrested by the occupation forces. Hamas held the Zionist occupation responsible for the consequences of this re-arrest.

In occupied Jerusalem, settlers, protected by the Israeli occupation police, stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque. They carried out provocative tours and performed religious rituals.

The Lawsuit Against Israel

The International Court of Justice announced that it will issue a decision on Friday regarding the possibility of imposing emergency measures against Israel. This decision comes after South Africa accused Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. The court will not address the main question of whether Israel is committing genocide but will only consider the possibility of taking urgent measures until the case is fully examined, which usually takes years.

Controversial Statement

Despite the ongoing lawsuit, the Israeli Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, Amichai Eliyahu, made a controversial statement. He called for dropping a nuclear weapon on the Gaza Strip. This statement has caused outrage, especially since South Africa included a previous statement by Eliyahu in their lawsuit, considering it an invitation to commit genocide crimes in Gaza.
