Israel intensifies attacks on Rafah, hits 11 homes, 22 killed

Israel intensifies attacks on Rafah, killing at least 22 Palestinians including eight children. The bombings come after Hamas fired rockets at the Karem Abu Salem crossing, killing three Israeli soldiers.

Gaza’s civil defence office said its crews in Rafah are dealing with “several attacks” on inhabited and uninhabited homes in the southern city.

It said Israeli forces have hit 11 homes in the southern area between Sunday evening and the early hours of Monday. The attacks have resulted in dozens of people killed, wounded, and missing under the rubble.

Meanwhile, Israeli media outlets are reporting that the Israeli military has begun ordering Palestinians living in neighbourhoods in eastern Rafah – near the perimeter fence with Israel – to evacuate from the area.

Israel’s Army Radio said the order comes before a “military attack” and that the Palestinians are being told to move towards camps for displaced people in Khan Younis and al-Mawasi areas.
