Gaza genocide: Seven killed in Israeli strike on Nuseirat refugee camp; death toll over 34k

An Israeli air raid targeted a house west of the Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip on Sunday evening, resulting in the deaths of seven civilians and injuries to others, according to reports from the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Wafa, citing local sources, stated that Israeli warplanes bombed the residence of the al-Nuwayri family within the camp. The Nuseirat refugee camp and its vicinity have experienced intense bombardment in recent days.

The death toll from Israel’s war on Gaza climbed to more than 34,000, with the majority of victims women and children, Nuseirat and six killed by an overnight airstrike on a house in Rafah on Saturday.

The latest grim milestone comes as hope of a ceasefire has dimmed, and global attention has shifted to the dangerous exchange of missile and drone strikes between Iran and Israel.

Nearly 77,000 people have also been wounded, according to health authorities. The figures exclude tens of thousands of dead who are believed to be buried in the bombed-out ruins of homes, shops, shelters and other buildings.

With talks in effect on hold, Israel has pushed ahead with a ground operation in southern Rafah, the only part of Gaza where it has not sent in troops. Air strikes have continued there, and one on Friday night hit a home in western Tel al-Sultan neighbourhood, killing nine people.
