The war of genocide waged by Israel against the besieged Gaza Strip has entered its 248th day, amidst the Zionist occupation forces continuing to commit war crimes against civilians, including women, children, and the elderly in the Gaza Strip, by launching dozens of air strikes, artillery shelling, and bloody massacres against civilians.

Occupation Commits 5 New Massacres

The occupation continues its aggression against Gaza, as medical sources revealed that more than 20 martyrs were killed in the continuous Zionist bombing of various areas in the Gaza Strip since dawn today.

During the past 24 hours, the occupation committed 5 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip, including 40 martyrs and 218 injuries, according to the Ministry of Health.

“UNRWA”: 20 Years to Erase the Destruction of Gaza

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said that more than half of the buildings in the Gaza Strip were destroyed, adding through its account on the “X” platform that removing the rubble will take years.

In this context, agency spokesman Jonathan Fowler said in an interview with “Anadolu” that the destruction caused by the “Israeli” war on Gaza exceeds what resulted from World War II in Europe, and that it will take more than 20 years to erase it and rebuild the Palestinian Strip.

Prominent Resistance Operations

The Palestinian resistance continues to confront the Zionist forces penetrating into several areas of Gaza, as the “Al-Qassam Brigades” announced, today, Monday, the detonation of a booby-trapped house inside which a Zionist force was holed up in the Shaboura camp in the city of Rafah, noting that it left members of the force dead and wounded.

Al-Qassam said: Immediately upon the arrival of the rescue force, our mujahideen bombarded the vicinity of the house that was bombed with mortar shells.

It added that it targeted a D9 military bulldozer with an Al-Yassin 105 shell near Al-Awda Mosque in the center of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

Resignation of Israeli Leaders

Yesterday evening, Sunday evening, the two ministers in the Zionist war government, Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot, announced their resignation in objection to the way Netanyahu is conducting the war on Gaza.

Gantz and Eisenkot, partners in the State Camp party (12 MPs out of 120 in the Knesset), accused Netanyahu of pursuing policies that serve his own political interests and failing to achieve the declared goals of the war on Gaza, especially eliminating the Hamas movement and returning prisoners from the Strip. According to Anadolu Agency.

Yesterday, Sunday, the commander of the Gaza Division in the occupation army, Brigadier General Avi Rosenfeld, announced his resignation from his position due to his failure to protect the military bases and settlements adjacent to the Gaza Strip on October 7, according to what Anadolu reported, citing Hebrew media.

The Hebrew Broadcasting Corporation said: The commander of the Gaza Division, Brigadier General Avi Rosenfeld, announced his retirement, as a result of his failure in the mission to protect the Gaza envelope area.

Rosenfeld added, “Everyone must bear responsibility for what happened on October 7.”

The officials, who were briefed on the discussions, said that such negotiations would not include “Israel,” and would be conducted through Qatari interlocutors, as is customary.
