In a tragic development, four Palestinians were killed by gunfire from Israeli forces as they attempted to access the Nasser Medical Complex in the southern Gaza Strip region of Khan Younis, reports Cairo News Channel.

The incident adds to the growing toll of casualties in the region, as the Palestinian Civil Defense revealed that 15 individuals were declared martyrs following an aerial bombardment that struck residential areas in Deir al-Balah and Al-Rawaida. Rescue operations are ongoing, with efforts to recover additional victims trapped beneath the rubble.

The Nasser Medical Complex, a critical healthcare facility in Khan Younis, has become a focal point for Palestinians seeking medical attention amid the escalating conflict. The loss of lives en route to the complex underscores the severe impact of the hostilities on civilian access to essential services.

International observers and humanitarian organizations have raised alarms over the dire situation in Gaza, calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities to prevent further civilian casualties and to allow for the safe passage of individuals seeking medical and humanitarian aid.

The deaths of four Palestinians near the Nasser Medical Complex highlight the perilous conditions faced by civilians in Gaza amidst ongoing conflict. With the death toll rising, the international community is urged to intervene to ensure the protection of non-combatants and the provision of necessary humanitarian assistance.
