The situation on the ground in Gaza remains grim as Israeli airstrikes and attacks continue, according to a report recently issued by UN agencies. The report highlights that airstrikes and attacks are still taking place, signaling a worrisome continuation of the conflict.

In its latest situation report, the specialist UN Palestine relief agency UNRWA said Israeli forces continued military operations across the Gaza Strip, resulting in further civilian casualties, displacement, and destruction of houses and other civilian infrastructure.

Israeli attacks have killed more than 32,000 Palestinians in Gaza since the war began in October, according to the Health Ministry of Gaza.

The UN agency reported that extensive airstrikes and bombardment continued in north Gaza, Khan Younis, and Rafah, where UNRWA estimates a total of 1.2 million people are now living, the vast majority in formal and informal shelters.
