Israeli occupation forces committed a new massacre on Wednesday night by targeting Al-Sardi School, which shelters displaced people in Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Media reports suggest that at least 29 Palestinians were killed in the heavy shelling.

According to Ismail al-Thawabta, director of the government media office in Gaza, the number of people killed is expected to rise as a large number of people are seriously injured.

The Israeli army admitted that its warplanes bombed the school compound belonging to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). As usual, the ‘Hamas hideout’ trope was invoked in the statement.

Moreover, the Israeli occupation forces raided several other areas in Gaza, leaving dozens of dead and wounded, and causing massive destruction in the health sector.

Throughout the last 24 hours, Israeli artillery shelled Nuseirat, Al-Mughraqa, Al-Zahra and Al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Maghazi refugee camp, another shelter for the displaced in Central Gaza, was attacked by Israel, hours before the Nuseirat school massacre. Eastern areas of Deir al-Balah were also targeted.

Four Palestinians were killed in an Israeli raid on a gathering of citizens in the Rimal neighbourhood in central Gaza City.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said at least 70 were killed and more than 300 wounded had been taken to Al-Aqsa hospital since Tuesday as a result of Israeli airstrikes on central Gaza alone.

According to an Al-Jazeera report,  the number of Palestinians killed rose to 97 people within 24 hours, as a result of the Israeli shelling.

36,586 Palestinians have been killed, and 83,074 injured in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
