IP - News sources reported about the new crime of the Zionist regime in the city of Rafah and the use of prohibited weapons in it.

Iran Press/ West Asia: More than 112 people were killed, and 232 others injured in the early morning attacks and bombardment of the Zionist regime targeting several neighborhoods in Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli strikes hit 14 houses and three mosques in Rafah, according to Palestinian officials.

There are conflicting reports of the death toll following the predawn strikes on Monday. A press statement from Hamas asserted that more than 100 people had been killed in the city of Rafah.

News sources also announced that most of the victims were women and children.

The director of Al-Kuwait Hospital in Rafah also announced that the Zionist regime used a weapon against this city, which is internationally prohibited and unusual.

He also told the press about the amputation of arms and legs, brain aneurysm, and burns of some victims.

Israeli military kills at least 15 people in bombing of Deir el-Balah in central Gaza. After fears of an Israeli ground invasion of Rafah, many Palestinian refugees fled Rafah to Deir el-Balah to be safe from attacks.

The strikes on Rafah come as Israel is preparing to launch a major offensive that aid agencies fear would result in significant civilian casualties in the last relatively safe area of Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu recently announced that the ground operation in Rafah will begin within the next 2 weeks.

Continuing his exaggerations of the past, he demanded the destruction of the military battalions of the Hamas movement in Rafah before the month of Ramadan.

The Zionist's Kan network recently reported that the US asked Israel to refrain from military operations and attacks on Rafah, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

Global warning of consequences of Israeli military invasion of Rafah

At the same time, Hamas, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, and several European countries including France, Britain, and the European Union have also warned about the consequences of the Zionist regime's attack on Rafah.

Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released a statement saying it’s “deeply concerned” about “reports of an Israeli military operation in Rafah”.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II and US President Joe Biden are expected to discuss the situation in Gaza when they meet in Washington, DC on Monday.
