The Israeli occupation committed another massacre in Gaza with a series of violent airstrikes on Saturday, targeting the area around Al-Sousi Mosque in the heart of Shati Refugee Camp.

According to Islam Badr, a correspondent for "Al-Arabi Television" in Beit Lahia, the occupation targeted a residential block comprising three homes: the houses of the Al-Fishawi, Khalaf, and Uday families.

One of the Most Severe Attacks

The bombing occurred at noon, a time when civilians are usually active. This attack is considered one of the most severe, with powerful consecutive explosions followed by rising smoke columns. Residents reported that the occupation aircraft created fire belts.

The targeted homes were leveled to the ground, and adjacent houses were heavily damaged. Footage showed destroyed homes, collapsed walls, and debris and dust filling one of the streets in Shati Camp, as dozens of Palestinians rushed to search for martyrs and wounded among the wreckage.

Shati Camp is one of the most densely populated camps and has recently witnessed a large influx of people due to military operations in Jabalia and the Al-Zeitoun neighborhood.

Ambulances and civilian vehicles transported the wounded and the bodies of the martyrs to Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital and the Patient Friends Hospital in Gaza.

24 Martyrs in Shati Camp Massacre

Ismail Thawabteh, the Director of the Government Media Office in Gaza, announced that 24 people were martyred in the attacks on Shati Camp.

Additionally, 18 Palestinians were martyred in an attack on homes in Al-Tuffah neighborhood, according to Thawabteh.

The occupation also committed a massacre in Al-Zeitoun neighborhood, resulting in the martyrdom of 7 Palestinians, as reported by "Al-Arabi Television."Shati Camp in Gaza: 24 Killed in Israeli Bombing
