This morning, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza reported the death toll from Israel’s genocidal assault at 23,084 killed and 58,9236 wounded, including 249 killed and 510 wounded in the previous 24 hours. Among the dead were two Palestinian journalists killed by an Israeli air strike near Rafah, according to health officials in Gaza and the journalists’ union there.

Separately, the Health Ministry said Israeli drones had opened fire on buildings at the Shuhada Al-Aqsa hospital in the central Gaza Strip. There were no reports of injuries but ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qidra accused Israel of trying to undermine work at the hospital, which serves hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in central Gaza—the focus of a heavier Israeli ground and air offensive in the past two weeks. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and other aid groups, meanwhile, withdrew from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah in recent days, saying it is too dangerous, according to AP. Their departure reportedly spread panic among people sheltering there, causing many to join the hundreds of thousands who have fled to the south of the besieged territory.
