Dozens of martyrs in bombing of camps in Rafah and the occupation admits targeting civilians
On Sunday evening, Israeli occupation aircraft launched raids targeting Palestinian refugee tents near the United Nations headquarters in the city of Rafah, resulting in dozens of martyrs and wounded.

According to the Civil Defense in Gaza, in a statement, 50 Palestinians were transferred “between martyrs and wounded as a result of Israeli bombing” to a displaced persons camp in the Tal al-Sultan area on Sunday evening.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said, in a brief statement, that its ambulance crews “transported a large number of martyrs and injuries following the occupation’s targeting of the tents of the displaced near the United Nations headquarters northwest of Rafah.”

Eyewitnesses from the camp reported that “Israeli warplanes bombed the camp with at least 8 missiles and that fires are still burning in the camp as a result of the bombing.”

The witnesses confirmed that "a large number of martyrs and wounded are still in the camp, and ambulance and civil defense crews are suffering from difficulty reaching them."

Ambulances are still transporting casualties from the bombing site to the Emirati Hospital, Tal Al-Sultan Clinic, the American Hospital, and the Red Cross Hospital, west of Rafah.

The massacre occurred in an area where Israel did not warn its residents and did not request its evacuation of displaced people. It came two days after the International Court of Justice decided to immediately stop the Israeli military attack on Rafah.

The occupation army acknowledges that there were civilian casualties

In this context, the Israeli occupation army acknowledged, on Sunday evening, that there were civilian casualties in an attack launched on a camp for the displaced, west of the city of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation army claimed, in a statement, that “planes recently attacked a Hamas compound in Rafah where senior leaders” were staying.

He claimed that "the attack was carried out against militants (...) using precision weapons, and based on preliminary intelligence information indicating that Hamas militants are using this area (Tel al-Sultan)."

The occupation continued: “As a result of the attack and the outbreak of a fire in the area, a number of uninvolved people were injured, and the incident is under review,” it claimed.

Since May 6, Israel has been launching a ground attack on Rafah, and the next day it seized the Palestinian side of the Rafah land crossing with Egypt. Which closed it to the exit of wounded people to receive treatment and the entry of already scarce humanitarian aid.

The attack forced at least 810,000 Palestinians to flee from Rafah, where there were about 1.5 million people, including about 1.4 million displaced from other areas in the Strip.

Since October 7, Israel has been waging a war on the Gaza Strip, which has left more than 116,000 Palestinians dead or wounded, most of them children and women, and about 10,000 missing amid massive destruction and famine that has claimed the lives of children and the elderly.

Israel ignores a resolution from the UN Security Council to end the fighting immediately, and the intention of the International Criminal Court to issue international arrest warrants against its Prime Minister and Minister of Defense. For their responsibility for “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity” in Gaza.

For the 18th year, Israel has besieged the Gaza Strip, and its war forced about two million of its residents, numbering about 2.3 million Palestinians, to flee in catastrophic conditions, with severe scarcity of food, water, and medicine.
