70 murdered by Israel in an air strike to a refugee camp – intense fighting continues

Israel continues the intense bombing of Gaza and the raids on the occupied West Bank. On the 24th of December 70 people were killed in the bombing of the Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza, being one of the bloodiest single attacks in the war. Once again, Israel shamelessly bombs civilians with no intention to follow the international laws of war. In the last 24 hours over 250 people have been killed. At the same time, the death toll of journalists in Gaza has exceeded 100 people, with Israel trying to prevent them from telling the world the truth of the genocide happening in Gaza.

At the same time, the battles between the national resistance and the IDF continue, with 14 IDF soldiers killed over the weekend according to Israeli sources. 48 IDF soldiers have been killed in four days according to the Al-Qassam Brigades. They also report having injured dozens of Israeli soldiers and having destroyed 35 military vehicles. In addition, the Israeli finance ministry announced that the war will triple the budget deficit of Israel in 2024.

In Yemen, the large protests in solidarity with the Palestinian people have continued.

The protesters denounced the crimes of Israel and rejected any aggression against their country.
