Israel steals organs from Palestinian bodies

Once again, the Israeli occupation military hands over the bodies of martyrs after stealing vital organs from some of them

The Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that the bodies of 100 martyrs were buried in a mass grave in Rafah. The Israeli occupation had stolen them from various areas in the Gaza Strip and handed them over on Tuesday morning through the "Kerem Shalom" crossing.

The agency cited medical sources as saying that the examination of the bodies revealed that the occupation had stolen organs from some of them.

In late December, the Government Media Office in Gaza revealed that the Israeli occupation forces handed over the mutilated bodies of 80 martyrs after stealing their organs, adding that the bodies were unidentified and the occupation refused to specify the names of these martyrs or the places from which they were stolen.

The occupation repeated the crime of stealing organs more than once during its real-time genocidal war, as per a statement by the Office.

It was highlighted that the Israeli occupation forces have been involved in a grave crime, specifically the kidnapping of the bodies of Palestinian martyrs and the theft of their vital organs.

The statement further pointed out that "Israel" had previously engaged in desecrating graves in Jabalia, underscoring that "Israel" continues to retain possession of numerous martyrs' bodies from the Gaza Strip.

It strongly emphasized that this heinous crime is just one in a series of atrocities committed by the Israeli occupation army, particularly following the green light given by the United States to kill civilians, including children and women.

The office, in its statement, called for the formation of a completely independent international investigation committee to probe the Israeli army's seizure of martyrs' bodies and the theft of their vital organs.

It also expressed deep shock at international organizations' "eerie silence", most notably the International Red Cross operating in the Gaza Strip. The statement also criticized these organizations for their feeble, secondary, and confused positions, emphasizing that they fall far short of the humanitarian and ethical standpoint required in the face of such heinous crimes committed by "Israel".

On January 6, the office reported that Israeli occupation forces exhumed around 1,100 graves in the al-Tuffah neighborhood cemetery east of Gaza City.

It confirmed that after digging up the graves and destroying the cemetery, the occupation forces stole approximately 150 bodies of recently buried martyrs and transported them to an unknown location.

30 decomposed bodies in Gaza school

Workers restoring a school in Beit Lahia, after Israeli forces besieged and occupied it, made a harrowing discovery, marking another Israeli war crime

The bodies of 30 Palestinians executed by Israeli occupation forces were found on Wednesday inside a school that had been besieged by the occupation's tanks.

The school located in the northernmost town of Beit Lahia in the Gaza Strip was being restored to house forcibly displaced Palestinians on Wednesday, when bodies of 30 martyrs were mistakenly found in the facility, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS).

    PPS said the dead bodies had their hands cuffed and their eyes blindfolded, with some being stripped of their clothes before being executed by Israeli occupation forces, marking yet another act of genocide and a war crime added to Israel's record
Following the withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces in several areas in the Gaza Strip, especially in the north, rescue teams, families, and humanitarian workers are uncovering the aftermath of the Israeli invasion.

PPS said there is a surge in distressing accounts from detainees, including children and women, who underwent various forms of mistreatment, both physically and psychologically, during their apprehension by Israeli occupation forces.

The organization, which is concerned with the rights of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails, emphasized that the persistence of the occupation in causing the disappearance of Gaza detainees can only be attributed to a deliberate decision to isolate them, with the intent of committing further undisclosed crimes against them.

While conducting a ground invasion of Gaza, the occupation forces disseminated shocking images and footage depicting the arrest of numerous individuals in conditions that violated human dignity.

Latest death toll in the Gaza Strip, confirming that the Israeli occupation has killed 26,900 Palestinians and injured 65,949 others since it launched its aggression on the Gaza Strip

Moreover, it added the Israeli occupation committed 16 massacres against Palestinian families in the Gaza Strip in only 24 hours, killing 150 and injuring 313.

Despite an already dire situation, several Western states, including the United States and Finland, have pledged to cut funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA), the only international organization concerned with aiding Palestinian refugees in areas, including the Gaza Strip.

27,131 Palestinians dead, 66,287 injured
    Thousands of victims are still under the rubble
The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that the IOF has committed 13 massacres in Gaza in the past 24 years, killing 112 Palestinians and injuring 148 others

This brings the current death toll to 27,131 Palestinians martyred and 66,287 injured since October 7.
UNICEF Director: Terror in Gaza must stop now

The Executive Director of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), Catherine Russell, described the scenes she witnessed during a rare visit to Gaza as "tragic", urging a stop to this "terror".

Russell emphasized that what she saw and heard "was heartbreaking," adding, "They have endured bombing, loss and repeated displacement within the Strip. There is no safe place for Gaza’s million children to take refuge."

She added that grave violations are being committed against children, including killing, mutilation, kidnapping, attacks on schools and hospitals, and the prevention of the arrival of humanitarian aid, all of which UNICEF condemns, stressing that more than 10,000 children were murdered in Gaza.

Russell stated that many children "are missing and are believed to be buried under the rubble of collapsed buildings and homes, which is the tragic result of the use of explosive weapons in populated areas."

Israeli plans to attack Rafah

Israel's Security Minister announces plans to launch a ground offensive of the densely-populated area of Rafah in southern Gaza

After four grueling months of the Israeli ongoing genocide in Gaza, marked by what has been termed the most catastrophic war in recent history, the toll has been staggering: over 100,000 individuals martyred, wounded, or missing, and more than half of the population internally displaced.

    Amid this backdrop of devastation, the Israeli government has announced intentions to continue its military operations, actions that are anticipated to lead to the killing of thousands more
On Friday, the Israeli Security Minister unveiled plans to escalate military actions in southern Gaza, specifically targeting Rafah.

This city, positioned along the Egyptian border, has become a refuge for the majority of Palestinians fleeing the relentless Israeli onslaughts and massacres throughout the Strip. Rafah, now overwhelmed with makeshift tent cities, has become a sanctuary for families desperately seeking respite from the occupation's violence that has besieged their lives.

“We complete the mission and will continue to Rafah,” Yoav Gallant posted on social media on Friday, claiming that this comes after the occupation army "dismantled" the Resistance in Khan Younis.

Displacement plans

According to "Tel Aviv," the main purpose of the operation is to "take control" of the "Philadelphi Axis," a 14 km narrow strip of land that separates Palestine from Egypt, extending from the Israeli-controlled Karam Abu Salem crossing, linking the Gaza Strip and occupied territories, to the southernmost point on the Strip's coast.

Cairo repeatedly announced its complete opposition to the ground invasion plot, with Egyptian officials warning that this serves the Israeli agenda to expel Palestinians from Gaza toward Sinai.

However, the occupation entity seems to be planning to move ahead with the attack nonetheless.

For weeks, humanitarian organizations and activists have warned that a military operation in the now densely-populated city would deepen the already catastrophic conditions Palestinians are living in, especially with the spread of famine and infectious diseases due to the Israeli blockade on medicine, food, water and fuel.

“The loss of life we face if Israel goes down into Gaza is huge,” said Bob Kitchen, vice president for emergencies at the International Rescue Committee, a humanitarian relief organization operating in Gaza.

Pressure cooker of despair

The United Nations estimated that almost nine out of ten people in Gaza have been forcibly displaced by Israelis.

According to Juliette Touma, the director of communications at the UN Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), the population of Rafah soared to a minimum of 1.4 million people out of the Strip's 2.2 million population, up from around 280,000 before the Israeli war on Gaza started last October.

Further detailing the situation, Jens Laerke, a spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), warned on Friday that Rafah had become a “pressure cooker of despair.”

Many of the people today in Rafah were “living in makeshift structures, tents, or out in the open," Laerke said.

The occupation entity had previously designated Khan Younis and Rafah as "safe areas," ordering Palestinians living in northern Gaza to move toward the cities, along other areas south of the Strip. As the aggression continued, Khan Younis later became the center of Israeli attacks and has remained so for almost two months now.

However, this did not stop Israelis from regularly bombarding it, leading to dozens of massacres, including several attacks on the Rafah crossing to prevent aid trucks from moving into Gaza from Egypt.

Suffering did not end there

The situation was made even worse when Israeli settlers started a roadblock last week to prevent aid trucks from moving into the besieged Strip through the Karam Abu Salem and Nitzana crossings.

    “People in Gaza risk dying of hunger just miles from trucks filled with food,” Cindy McCain, head of the World Food Program, referring to aid stuck on the borders banned by Israelis from entry
Winter and heavy rain have severely impacted civilians living in tents or near destroyed infrastructure in Rafah, who are now also forced to live in inhumane sanitary conditions.

Palestinian media reported in the previous weeks many deaths that were caused due to the bitter cold weather and lack of shelter.

“Thousands and thousands of people are sharing individual toilets,” Kitchen said, adding that IRC workers in Rafah had seen “queues of 4 to 5 hours” to use the bathrooms.

“We’re already seeing massive reports of acute watery diarrhea, which I think, if tested, would be proven to be cholera,” Kitchen added.

But the suffering of Palestinians does not end there.

Earlier this week, the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia and over a dozen more countries announced suspending funds to UNRWA, citing Israeli intelligence reports claiming that "12 out of 12,000 UNRWA employees" are members of Hamas, some of which even took part in the October 7 operation.

However, the Israeli occupation has yet to provide any evidence.

With this announcement, UNRWA warned that if the halt in funds continues, the main humanitarian organization today operating in Gaza would have to shut down its work in the Strip by the end of February.

US $17.6 billion in military aid for Israel

WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Legislation providing $17.6 billion in new military assistance to Israel as it wages war against Hamas was unveiled on Saturday in the U.S. House of Representatives

The funding bill, offered by a House Appropriations panel, could come to a vote in the full House sometime next week, Speaker Mike Johnson said in a letter to members.

The Republican-controlled House had previously approved $14.3 billion in new military aid to Israel, but with the requirement that it be paid for by clawing back a chunk of money already targeted for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

The Democratic-controlled Senate balked at that provision and is expected to unveil a legislative package that would aid Israel as well as provide more military assistance for Ukraine in its war against Russia.

That same Senate bill is also expected to contain proposals for strengthening security along the southern U.S. border with Mexico.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has taken steps to start debate on that multipronged bill next week, with a first procedural vote no later than Wednesday.

According to the House Appropriations Committee, the $17.6 billion would include funds to help replenish Israel's missile defense systems, procure additional advanced weapons systems, and produce artillery and other munitions

Some of the funding would also be used to replenish U.S. arms provided to Israel following the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel.

"The need to support our closest ally and our own forces in the region has never been more pressing," Johnson said in his letter to colleagues.

It was unclear whether far-right House members might balk at the funding for Israel without an equal amount of savings elsewhere in the budget.

House Republicans have insisted that any new aid to Ukraine be accompanied by strong new U.S. border controls at a time when record numbers of immigrants are trying to enter the United States. While the Senate plans to do just that, Johnson already has said the border security package to be unveiled in the Senate is insufficient.

Before new military aid to Israel or Ukraine can be delivered, the House and Senate must pass the same bill before sending it to President Joe Biden, a Democrat, for signing into law.

US-UK aggression will not go unanswered

Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the spokesperson for the Yemeni Armed Forces, affirmed on Sunday at dawn, that, over the past hours, US-UK aggression aircraft launched 48 airstrikes across various areas in multiple Yemeni governorates

The 48 air raids carried out by the aggression were distributed, as outlined in a brief statement, as follows: Thirteen raids targeted Amanat al-Asimah (Sanaa capital) and Sanaa Governorate, nine raids on Hodeidah Governorate, and eleven raids on Taiz Governorate.

Additionally, al-Bayda and Hajjah governorates were each targeted with seven raids, and the aggression's aircraft launched one raid on Saada Governorate.

The spokesperson for the Yemeni Armed Forces emphasized that these attacks "will not go unanswered," vowing that "there will be consequences."

    He, yet again, reaffirmed Yemen's commitment by stating that the airstrikes "will not dissuade us from our moral, religious, and humanitarian stance in solidarity with the resilient Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip."
The statement came shortly after a recent American-British aggression on Yemen. According to Al Mayadeen's correspondent, there has been an attack on the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, and multiple governorates, coinciding with increased aircraft activity in the airspace.

As per our correspondent, the American and British airstrikes focused on the regions of Attan, al-Nahdin, and al-Hafa within the capital, Sanaa.

Additionally, he reported that aircraft involved in the US-British aggression conducted over 11 airstrikes on the districts of Maqbanah and Haifan situated in the western and southern outskirts of Taiz Governorate, in the southwest of Yemen.

It has become embarrassing to be British

Why is the UK supporting the US/Israeli genocide of Palestinians?

Why is the UK attacking the Yemen, the ONLY country trying to block aid to Israel?

8,000 Palestinians evacuated from hospital

The Palestinian Red Cross Crescent Society revealed today that some 8,000 displaced Palestinians were evacuated from the Al-Amal hospital and the PRCS's headquarters in Khan Younis

"Today, approximately 8,000 displaced individuals were evacuated from Al-Amal Hospital and the PRCS’s headquarters in #KhanYunis. Only forty elderly displaced individuals and around 80 patients and wounded, and a hundred administrative and medical staff remain," the PRCS posted on X.

The Israeli Genocide in Gaza continues

The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced yesterday that the IOF committed 14 massacres in only 24 hours, killing 127 Palestinians and injuring 178 others. This brings the total number of Palestinians killed since October 7 to 27,365, in addition to 66,630 injuries.

Several victims are still under the rubble and on the roads due to the occupation preventing ambulance and civil defense crews from reaching them.

Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that the IOF has been heavily attacking Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, with violent raids targeting areas south of it and bombing targeting areas to its west.

In the center of Khan Younis, Israeli artillery shelling targeted the homes of Palestinians, which resulted in the destruction and burning of many of them. The Israeli forces also bombed residential buildings in the west of Khan Younis, all part of their deliberate and systemic practice of depriving Palestinians of all life necessities.

As for Deir al-Balah in central Gaza, the IOF bombed a house in al-Hakar area, in which several Palestinians were martyred and many others were injured, including children.

In parallel, the IOF has been also bombing the vicinity of Al-Amal Hospital, forcing the transfer of the bodies of several martyrs to the Nasser Medical Complex, our correspondent reported.

Two Palestinians were martyred and several others were injured due to the Israeli targeting of a kindergarten sought as a refuge by Palestinian families east of Rafah. In the same area, IOF aircraft bombed a car near the Martyrs' Cemetery in al-Salam neighborhood.

In addition, the bodies of several martyrs were moved to Kamal Adwan Hospital after their bodies were recovered from under the rubble, while another Palestinian was sniped at by an Israeli sniper in the vicinity of Al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza.

Israeli occupation raids on West Bank towns

The Palestinian Resistance factions engage in fierce, intensified confrontations with Israeli occupation forces raiding several towns and cities in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday afternoon

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - Tulkarm, in particular, announced that its fighters continue to engage in fierce confrontations with invading occupation forces in the Nur Shams refugee camp to the east of Tulkarm city in the occupied West Bank.

The Tulkarm governorate is positioned at the western periphery of the occupied territory, meaning that it is strategically close to a number of central occupied cities in '48 occupied territories, including "Netanya".

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades - Tulkarm Brigade also announced that its fighters, armed with assault rifles and locally produced explosive devices, are confronting occupation forces.

On Wednesday evening, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine's (PFLP) Abu Ali Moustapha Brigades in the West Bank also announced that its fighters were confronting occupation forces in Nur Shams.

Israeli occupation forces relaunched an incursion into the city of Tulkarm and the nearby Nur Shams refugee camp, after withdrawing from the governorate's residential areas earlier on Wednesday.

It is worth noting that refugee camps in the governorate and the city of Tulkarm come under near-daily raids, in which occupation forces arbitrarily detain Palestinians and fire live ammunition at residents. Occupation forces have also increasingly deployed attack drones in Tulkarm and other cities, conducting strikes on locals.

Large reinforcements were sent into the western entrance of the city on Wednesday, as the Israeli political and military command continues to attempt to subdue Palestinian acts of resistance and support for their compatriots in the Gaza Strip.

A young man and a girl were wounded by Israeli occupation forces gunfire in Nur Shams, and three women were injured after suffering shrapnel injuries, The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that occupation forces continue to prevent ambulances from entering the camp to attend to two wounded individuals.

    Israeli occupation forces also attempted to silence journalists covering the unraveling developments by directly targeting them
In the governorate of Qalqilya, to the south of Tulkarm and to the northeast of "Tel Aviv", Israeli occupation forces raided the town of Hableh.

In January alone, occupation forces detained 1,236 Palestinians, including 30 women and 73 children, raising the total number of Palestinians arrested from the West Bank since October 7, 2023, to 6,870 detainees. More than 381 Palestinians were killed in the same time frame in the West Bank alone, while another 4,400 were injured.

Netanyahu vows war 'till the end'

The Israeli Prime Minister rejects the demands of the Resistance in Gaza and says the war on the Strip will continue for months and not years

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin said the next phase of the ground invasion in Gaza after Khan Younis will be Rafah, noting that the war on the Strip "will continue till the end."

Over 120 days into the war, the Israeli military is yet to achieve any of its main declared objectives.

In a Wednesday press conference, Netanyahu said that reaching "victory" in Gaza will require "months" and not years, and this can't be accomplished with the "military collapse [of Resistance Hamas]. There will not be a civilian collapse [of Gaza government] without a military one."

“We are on the way to complete victory. The victory is within reach,” he claimed.

“I set absolute victory as the goal from the start,” he said, adding, “We won’t settle for any less than that.”

Netanyahu denied reports that Hamas was re-deploying in areas in northern Gaza where Israelis have withdrawn, claiming that the military has dismantled the group’s brigades and military chain of command there.

“There is no alternative to the military collapse [of Hamas]. There will not be a civilian collapse [of Hamas rule] without a military one,” the Israeli PM said.

Hamas announced on Tuesday that it handed its response to the Paris Document to mediators, adding that the party dealt "positively" with the initial proposal, which came as a result of a meeting of top intelligence officials from Egypt, Qatar, the United States, and France in Paris in late January.

The group introduced modifications to the original prisoner exchange proposal, which had lacked core conditions Resistance factions in Gaza insisted on repeatedly.

Added clauses included a comprehensive and complete ceasefire, ending the aggression, securing relief, shelter, reconstruction (projects), lifting the siege on the Gaza Strip, and completing the process of a prisoner exchange deal.

Hamas' response surprised Israeli officials, with Israeli media reporting that it proved the Resistance is negotiating with ease and "its back is not against the wall."

Commenting on the response, Netanyahu rejected the conditions, adding that it seems negotiations still haven't reached a mature stage.

Specifically, the Israeli occupation has refused to commit to the kinds of ratios of Palestinian captives to be freed in exchange for captives, or to the identity of detainees who would go free.

“There is supposed to be some kind of negotiation via the intermediaries. But right now, given what I see from the response by Hamas [to the Israel-backed framework for talks on a deal], they’re not there.”

He continued that “the ‘day after’ is the day after Hamas” and that the goal is to ensure there remain no Resistance groups in Gaza.

In another context, Benjamin Netanyahu blatantly denied reports of increased humanitarian aid to Gaza, claiming that “up to 60 percent of the humanitarian aid is taken by Hamas.”

Resistance stands in the way of normalization

Reuters reported earlier this month that Saudi officials have told their US counterparts that Riyadh is willing, in exchange for normalization with "Israel", to accept "a political commitment from Israel towards a two-state solution" without having the occupation take any concrete steps.

The report prompted Saudi Arabia to issue a statement refuting all mentioned claims and emphasized the necessity of resolving the Palestinian cause, first and foremost, and establishing an independent Palestinian State.

On that note, the Israeli Prime Minister said the Resistance today is standing in the way of more normalization deals.

“There’ll be no agreement [on further peace treaties] if Hamas is not defeated,” he said.

Israeli media reported on Tuesday that Netanyahu denied a US request for Secretary of State Antony Blinken to meet privately with army chief Herzi Halevi.

The Prime Minister confirmed the reports, saying that during his trips to the US, he does not meet with military officials without the presence of the country's diplomats.

“I think that’s how we need to act,” he said.

125: 27,840 Palestinians slaughtered, 67,317 injured

The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported today that the number of martyred Palestinians in the Strip has reached 27,840, with 67,317 injured since October 7. This comes as a result of the Israeli occupation forces committing 15 massacres against families in Gaza in the past 24 hours, murdering another 130 Palestinians and injuring 170 others

Gaza's Health Ministry added that many victims remain under the rubble as ambulances and civil defense crews are unable to reach them.

IOF continues to target Gaza and Rafah

Today at dawn, Israeli aircraft bombed Rafah, southern Gaza, and Deir al-Balah, in the center of Gaza, murdering at least 14 Palestinians and injuring dozens of others in their strikes.

As the occupation continues its deliberate targeting of Palestinian homes, 10 Palestinians were martyred and at least 10 others were injured due to Israeli aircraft bombing a house in Deir al-Balah. In addition,12 Palestinians were also martyred and others were injured as a result of further Israeli aircraft bombing of two houses near the Abu Al-Saeed Junction in Tal Al-Sultan and the Saudi neighborhood west of Rafah, south of Gaza.

Al Mayadeen’s correspondent in the Gaza Strip reported in parallel that an Israeli artillery shelling targeted east of Rafah, south of the Strip.

A Palestinian journalist, Nafez Abdel Jawad, and his son were also martyred by an Israeli raid on Deir al-Balah.

UNRWA: 84% of Gaza's health facilities impacted by Israeli attacks

The Israeli aggression on Gaza has affected 84% of health facilities in the besieged Gaza Strip, the UN Palestinian Refugee Agency (UNRWA) said on Tuesday.

''Due to continued bombardment and access restrictions, only 4 out of 22 UNRWA health facilities are still operational,'' the UN agency added in a statement on X.

UNRWA also shared photos of the damage incurred by the Sheikh Radwan Health Center in Israeli attacks on northern Gaza.

    According to the UN, 85% of Gaza's population has been displaced internally due to Israeli aggression, leading to severe shortages of food, clean water, and medicine. Additionally, 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been either damaged or destroyed

Search for Hind comes to tragic end
    found dead amid pile of bodies
The PRCS confirms that the team dispatched to rescue Hind was killed despite prior coordination with the Israeli occupation

The search for Hind Rajab, the 6-year-old girl from Gaza, who pleaded for help from the Palestinian Red Crescent as the Israeli occupation forces were shooting at the car she was in with her family 12 days ago, came to a tragic end.

The Palestine Red Crescent has confirmed that Hind has been found dead along with the bodies of five of her family members, in Tal al-Hawa neighborhood of Gaza City, in a vehicle that was surrounded by Israeli tanks.

    The hopeful waiting has sadly come to an end, just like "Israel" ended the life of yet another innocent child in #Gaza.

In further detail, the Palestine Red Crescent revealed that the ambulance that was dispatched to rescue Hind and her sister who contacted the PRCS for help was found bombed in Tal al-Hawa area of Gaza City, leading to the killing of crew members Yusuf Zeino and Ahmed Al-Madhoun, 12 days after losing contact with them.

These dedicated individuals had been missing since undertaking a rescue mission for the trapped child, Hind Rajab, as per the Palestine Red Crescent.

IOF brutality caught on video

Hind, along with her uncle, his wife, and their four children, was in a vehicle trying to find a safe place in northern Gaza when they became the target of Israeli gunfire, as reported by the PRCS.

Hind's 15-year-old cousin, Layan Hamadeh, made a distressing plea for assistance to emergency services, a call that was recorded by the PRCS and later shared on social media. In the recording, the teenager can be heard speaking to a paramedic, tearfully seeking help and detailing the presence of a nearby tank.

“They are shooting at us. The tank is right next to me. We’re in the car, the tank is right next to us,” Layan screamed, amid intense gunfire heard in the background.

Following Layan's silence, the rounds of gunfire came to a halt. The paramedic attempts to communicate with her, repeatedly saying, "Hello? Hello?" Unfortunately, there is no response.

Lonely, filled with fear, and confined in the car with the lifeless bodies of her family members, Hind urgently reached out for assistance.

“Come take me. Will you come and take me? I’m so scared, please come!" Hind pleaded in an audio recording of her call to emergency responders, as shared by the PRCS.

The PRCS reported that its responders remained on the phone with Hind for over three hours while urgently working to deploy an ambulance team, consisting of paramedics Yusuf Zeino and Ahmed Al-Madhoun, to locate her.

During this period, ambulances were unable to access the area as it was deemed a "closed military zone" by the invading Israeli troops, with potential targeting of anyone attempting to move within that vicinity.

Rana al-Faqueh, a PRCS response coordinator who stayed connected with the girl throughout the ordeal, mentioned that Hind inquired about the time due to the approaching darkness.

“I’m afraid of the dark,” she said, as per al-Faqueh.

“Is there gunfire around you?” she asked. “Yes. Come get me,” answered Hind.

In an official statement, the PRCS reported at the time that their rescue team reached the location where the young girl was confined in the car, near a Fares gas station, at 6 pm local time.

However, shortly after, contact was lost both with the rescue team and with Hind.

Every mother's worst fears

For 12 days, the world observed and anticipated updates on the plight of the young girl from Gaza who pleaded for assistance while trapped in a vehicle subjected to an Israeli attack.

Hind's anguished mother, stationed anxiously outside a Gaza hospital, clung to hope, preparing her belongings and awaiting any news. The mother's current anguish is indescribable, knowing that her 6-year-old daughter died alone, cold, fearful, and hungry. It remains unclear whether Hind succumbed to Israeli gunfire or starved to death amid the cold, with deceased family members in the car, fueled by her fear of the darkness. One thing is clear, Hind was deliberately killed by "Israel".

    Pro-Palestine activists in #Bournemouth Beach have placed 12,000 items of children's clothing along the beach in an attempt to show how many children have been killed by "Israel" in its genocidal war on #Gaza.

The 6-year-old girl represents one among at least 12,150 Palestinian children who have been killed during the ongoing Israeli genocidal war against Palestinians in Gaza. Those who have survived until now find themselves in dire circumstances—trapped beneath the debris of their homes, facing starvation, grappling with critical injuries, or left stranded without parental guidance.

28,473 dead, 68,146 injured

"Israel" continues 133 Palestinians were killed and 162 others injured due to the Israeli aggression in Gaza

The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israeli occupation forces committed several massacres during the past 24 hours, killing 133 Palestinians and injuring 162, bringing the total number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli aggression on Gaza up to 28,473, in addition to 68,146 injuries.

It further stressed that many victims remained under the rubble as the IOF prevented ambulance and civil defense crews from reaching them.

On the 130th day of Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, many Palestinians were killed and injured in airstrikes and artillery shelling by "Israel" in different parts of the Gaza Strip.

Al Mayadeen's correspondent in the Gaza Strip reported that five people were killed and several others were injured when a house in the Nuseirat camp in the central part of the Strip was bombed by Israeli forces.

Many Palestinians were injured by airstrikes carried out by Israeli warplanes in the al-Maghazi camp located in the central part of the Gaza Strip. As the Israeli occupation continues its aggression on the Gaza Strip, the humanitarian situation is simultaneously getting worse.

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) stated that the Gaza Strip's population is experiencing "unprecedented levels of near famine-like conditions" due to the prolonged Israeli aggression on Gaza. Approximately 550,000 people are now at risk of catastrophic food insecurity, and the entire population is in a state of crisis, it added.

"There are unprecedented levels of acute food insecurity, hunger, and near famine-like conditions in Gaza," FAO Deputy Director General Beth Bechdol said in an interview published by the Rome-based agency.

According to the statement, every one of the 2.2 million individuals in Gaza falls within the top three hunger categories, ranging from level three, classified as an emergency, to level five, labeled as a catastrophe. It is worth noting that the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) measures hunger levels on a scale from one to five.

British military training Israeli officers in UK

Declassified UK reveals that "almost none of this extent of UK military support for Israel" is being reported in the British media

The UK announced that it is providing training to Israeli military officers in the country as the war on Gaza nears its 5-month mark with over 100,000 Palestinians recorded killed and injured.

“Israel is represented by Armed Forces personnel in its Embassy in the UK, and as participants in UK defence-led training courses”, British Defense Minister James Heappey has told parliament.

“There are currently six Israeli Armed Forces officers posted in the UK”, he added responding to a written question by Alba MP Kenny MacAskill.

However, Heappey did not specify which units of the Israeli military are being trained in Britain.

The government has earlier admitted that nine Israeli military aircraft have landed in the country since October 7, but refused to disclose the nature of the trips nor if they were holding any cargo.

Declassified UK also reported previously that the British Royal Air Force has sent 48 military aircraft to "Israel" since the occupation entity launched its brutal war on Gaza. It further revealed in January that the UK has carried out 65 spy missions on the Strip from its military and intelligence base on Cyprus.

"Almost none of this extent of UK military support for Israel" is being reported in the British media, Declassified pointed out.
'Periodic exercise'

Last year, the UK's defense ministry admitted its training of Israeli military personnel included medical training, “organizational design and concepts” and “defense education”.

While the ministry refused to disclose the details of the military agreement it signed with "Israel" in 2020, it said the agreement “enshrines ongoing joint training and exercises” contributing to “strengthening military ties”.

In 2019, the Israeli Air Force deployed fighter jets to Britain for the first time. Israeli F-15 warplanes participated in a joint combat exercise with the RAF, alongside aircraft from the German and Italian air forces, the investigative outlet said.

These warplanes have been actively involved in bombing Gaza for several months.

Additionally, it is believed that the UK has military officers stationed in the entity, although specific details are unclear, Declassified reported.

In 2022, the MoD confirmed that it had four military personnel based in the British embassy in "Tel Aviv," carrying out significant activities in Defence Engagement and Diplomacy, albeit not related to military training.

Nonetheless, the ministry stated that "periodically additional UK personnel visit Israel for training, exercises, and engagement purposes."

Israel Storms Nasser Hospital in Gaza

On Thursday, Israeli occupation forces stormed Nasser Hospital in the city of Khan Younis after demolishing its southern wall

The Gaza-based Health Ministry denounced that the Israeli forces ordered medics to move all patients into an older building of the hospital which was not properly equipped for treatment.

Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila said the Israeli attacks on Nasser Hospital repeated "the horrific crimes that occurred in other hospitals in Gaza, including the Shifa Medical Complex, when it forced the displaced people to evacuate and targeted them with fire and arrested them."

She said Nasser Hospital, which had been under siege for 25 consecutive days, hosted 300 health personnel, 450 patients and wounded, and more than 10,000 displaced people.

The Gaza-based Health Ministry also reported that Israeli occupation forces killed 80 Palestinians and injured a hundred people in the last 24 hours in the Gaza Strip.

Currently, Zionist soldiers prevent ambulances and rescue teams from reaching places where an undetermined number of people remain under the rubble left by the bombings.

Since October 7, 2023, the Israeli offensive on Gaza has left 28,663 dead and 68,395 people injured, according to available data.

NGOs Call for Ceasefire and Aid

On Friday, several non-governmental organizations called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and a massive increase in humanitarian aid to avert famine in the territory, home to more than two million Palestinians

Allowing humanitarian access to the civilian population is an obligation under international humanitarian law, the groups stressed in a joint statement.

The risk of famine is increasing every day in Gaza due to the continuation of hostilities and the Israeli blockade, the message noted.

The statement criticized the use of starvation as a method of warfare and recalled that "starvation of the civilian population is illegal under international humanitarian law and constitutes a direct violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2417."

    The UN and international aid groups have warned of a 'slaughter' if Israel launches a ground attack in Rafah, where more than one million displaced Palestinians currently are sheltering.

It also questioned the siege tactics imposed by the Israeli military, the shelling of densely populated areas and that country's refusal to send humanitarian aid missions to northern Gaza.

"Infants, young children and pregnant women are currently more vulnerable than before the escalation of the conflict," the document warned.

“The totally inadequate access to food, water and essential life-saving services exposes these groups to increased chances of malnutrition and disease, which increases the risk of mortality and morbidity,” it said.

The statement is signed, among others, by Action Against Hunger, ActionAid, the Norwegian Refugee Council and Save the Children.
