At least 310 Palestinians were killed in a 24-hour period between Thursday and Friday in the Gaza Strip, as the Israeli military blasted the densely-populated Palestinian enclave from air, land and sea, the UN says in its latest report.
Approximately 70 percent of the almost 17,500 people killed in Gaza since October 7 have been women and children, the UN also reports, citing the territory’s Ministry of Health. A further 46,000 people have been injured by Israeli attacks.
The report highlights some of the deadliest attacks on Thursday and Friday:
30 people killed when a house was hit by Israeli fire in the al-Dorj neighbourhood, east of Gaza City
35 killed when two houses were hit in eastern Gaza City.
13 killed in an attack on a residential building in the Nuseirat refugee camp in the central part of Gaza.
9 killed when a residential building was hit west of Khan Younis in the south of Gaza.
