IP - Gaza Health Ministry reports 33 people have been killed and 57 injured in the latest 24-hour.

Iran Press/ West Asia: At least 34,568 Palestinians have been killed and 77,765 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza in the past 208 days.

The Israeli army has ramped up bombardment in the vast majority of the Gaza Strip, including the eastern part of Rafah, where it’s expected the Israeli army might start a ground offensive.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israeli forces will enter Gaza’s southern city of Rafah regardless of whether a ceasefire deal is reached with Hamas.

Meanwhile, United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres warns that an Israeli assault on Rafah would be an “unbearable escalation” in Gaza and the wider region.

Last night at least two children were killed in an overnight Israeli attack on a house in Rafah, while more reportedly died in an air strike on a residential building in central Gaza City.

In the West Bank, Israeli forces have detained 20 Palestinians, including one minor, throughout the occupied West Bank in 24 hours, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society.

Last night, also Israeli forces have raided the small village of Berin, east of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, and demolished a family’s home and water well, reports the Wafa news agency.

Israeli settlers have been repeatedly blocking the humanitarian aid trucks heading to Gaza after leaving from Ashdod port, 38km (24 miles) north of the Strip.

Two Jordanian aid convoys carrying food, flour, and other humanitarian aid were attacked by Israeli settlers this morning on their way into Gaza, reports Jordan’s state-run Petra news agency, citing the Foreign Ministry.

This brings the total number of Palestinians arrested in the West Bank since the Gaza war broke out on October 7 to 8,535.

The latest arrests took place in Hebron, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Tubas, Nablus, Jericho, and Jerusalem governorates, where Israeli forces also harassed, threatened and assaulted detainees and their relatives, the Prisoner’s Society said.
