On the 129th day of ongoing aggression against Gaza, Israeli bombardment in the city of Rafah resulted in the deaths of about 100 citizens, including women and children, with hundreds more injured.

This intense attack marked yet another devastating chapter in the conflict, with over 28,176 Palestinians martyred and 67,784 wounded since the start of the aggression.

Palestinian medical sources reported that dozens of victims were brought to hospitals for treatment, while civilians sought shelter from the violence.

The Israeli raids targeted various areas in Rafah, including homes and mosques that housed displaced people, as well as areas close to the border with Egypt.

Violent clashes between resistance groups and occupation forces ensued, with Rafah facing a grave humanitarian crisis amid the continued attacks.

The United Nations expressed deep concern over the dire situation, urging an end to the violence to prevent further loss of life.

With over 1.4 million citizens packed into Rafah, many of whom have fled from other parts of Gaza due to the conflict, the overcrowding poses a significant challenge for medical facilities and services.

As the death toll rises and the city remains under siege, international observers fear the catastrophic consequences of a potential invasion.

The United Nations has called for urgent action to protect civilians and prevent further escalation in the region.
