The International Commission (Hashd): “Israel” is a rogue entity; Terrorism is practiced in a horrific manner that denies the values and principles of human society.
For the fourth consecutive day, the Israeli military occupation forces continued to carry out a large-scale military attack on the Gaza Strip, deliberately, through military operations, harming civilians and their civilian property, including insisting on continuing to implement the policy of targeting homes; What resulted according to the latest statistics of the Palestinian Ministry of Health until the time of the hour18:00 this evening, Friday, corresponding to May 12, 2023, to the death of 33 citizens, including 6 children and 03 three women; 111 citizens were injured in various embarrassments; 32 housing units were destroyed; and damaging 532 housing units; Of these, 37 are uninhabitable.
On the fourth day of the aggression, Israeli warplanes continued attacks and raids on the Gaza Strip, deliberately targeting civilians and citizens’ homes, as warplanes destroyed 10 homes, in addition to continuing to target civilians and infrastructure, while the occupation forces continued to close all border crossings, which led to and will lead to an exacerbation of the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, especially with the announcement that the fuel stock in the only power plant in the Gaza Strip is about to run out; Consequently, the danger of stopping the entire power plant still exists strongly, especially if the Kerem Shalom crossing continues to be closed and fuel shipments are prevented from entering the station. The closure of the crossings also contributed to the prevention of travel patients fr from the Gaza Strip to hospitals in the West Bank and preventing the entry of medicines, supplies, and medical devices, in addition to the heavy losses incurred by the agricultural, and economic sectors as a result of the continued closure of the crossings and the aggression.
