The Gaza Ministry of Health, controlled by Hamas announced that at least 70 people, including many children, were killed in an Israeli attack which hit the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in the center of the Strip. The ministry said the Israeli attack destroyed at least three houses in the camp.

Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra explained that the raid destroyed a “residential block” and that the “toll will likely increase” given the large number of families residing there. In another incident, the ministry said 10 members of a family were killed in a raid on Jabalia camp.
