Pregnant woman, six children among Palestinians killed in zionist regime’s Rafah strikes

The zionist military has conducted fresh airstrikes on Rafah, killing at least 16 people, including a pregnant mother, in the densely-populated southern Gaza city.

Palestinian media reported on Sunday that a father, daughter, and pregnant mother lost their lives after an Israeli raid hit their family home at the al-Shaboura camp in the center of Rafah.

The pregnant woman, who arrived at the Kuwaiti hospital, was already dead, but doctors were able to save her unborn baby, according to medics.

Another Israeli aerial assault targeted a house on George Street, east of Rafah, killing five Palestinians, including four children, and injuring several others.

A separate strike by the occupation’s military killed eight people, including five children, in the Palestinian city.

Rafah, situated in the Gaza Strip’s closed southern border with Egypt, is home to around 1.5 million Palestinians who have been displaced due to Israel’s US-backed genocidal war on the territory.

Israel had designated Rafah a “safe zone,” but it is now an all-out military offensive, leaving the people sheltering there terrified with nowhere left to go.

The assault has mounted fears over a new carnage against Palestinians and drawn global condemnations.

Israel waged its brutal Gaza onslaught on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 34,049 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 76,901 others.
