Israel has been carrying out a horrific campaign of bloodshed against Palestinian civilians in Gaza City, since 7 October 2023.

According to Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, Israeli forces have been conducting a series of crimes systematically, including deliberate killings, extrajudicial executions, communication cutoffs, and intense shelling targeting areas and homes surrounding the al-Shifa Medical Complex.

This complex has been under comprehensive military attack for the fifth consecutive day and serves as a shelter for thousands of displaced Palestinian families, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor said.

It added: "Israeli attacks also included strip-searching civilians and using them as human shields, raiding residential homes, conducting arbitrary arrests, and torturing residents, including women and children, who were forced to evacuate without the presence of male family members towards the central and southern areas of the Strip, before burning their homes."

An eye-witness named Roula Saad said: "We saw death before our eyes. They stormed the residential building where my family resides, and suddenly we found 50 armed soldiers in the middle of the living room. They ordered the men to strip naked and the women to follow them. They took us to the first floor, where they placed the men in a room next to us before taking them to al-Shifa Hospital. As for us women, they ordered us to go down and head towards the southern areas of the Strip."
