The genocidal State of Israel continues its massive bombardment against the civilian population of Rafah. At the same time the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) continue the forced expulsion of the Palestinians, expelling them from the east areas of Rafah towards the area of Al-Mawasi. The bombardments have not stopped in other areas, for example the IDF has carried out a new massacre in the Jabalia refugee camp in the north of the Gaza Strip. Among other places, the neighborhood of al-Zaytoun, where the Palestinian Resistance has been making fierce resistance in recent days, has also been hit.

The latest death toll stands at 34,971 people killed. Of these, 10,000 of their bodies are still under rubble and have not been recovered by their families. Another 78,641 people have been wounded.

In addition to the bombings and direct attacks against the civilian population, more crimes by the State of Israel are being uncovered every day. Recently, information has been leaked by three Israelis working in the Sde Teiman detention camp, in the Naqab desert. They have given numerous details of mistreatment, humiliation and torture that have been revealed in an interview by the bourgeois Yankee media CNN. There, Palestinian prisoners are forced to wear diapers, are not allowed to move and are kept blindfolded.

This adds to a long history of torture and misstreatment of Palestinian prisoners, something that has already been denounced in numerous reports and studies, and which we report on in the following article:

The people of Palestine are combating and resisting those who carry out the genocide. We previously reported on the combats in the al-Zaytoun neighborhood. Now the IDF has admitted that four of its soldiers have been killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) in Gaza City, and two others are seriously wounded by combats in the northern Gaza Strip. More videos of Palestinian Resistance actions in Gaza have recently been released:

In the West Bank the IDF has carried out numerous arrests in several villages and on the outskirts of Jenin. In front of this the people of Palestine continue their clashes against the Israeli repressive forces and resistance and clashes are reported in the village of Kafr Qaddum, Qalqilya district.

There have been more armed actions by various groups against the State of Israel. Since yesterday there are reports of more attacks by Hezbollah against various Israeli targets. In several cases these attacks have been successful and there are videos of the large fires they have caused:

Among the several attacks done recently, Hezbollah has informed that it attacked a group of Israeli soldiers in a building in Metula, same place where it already caused several IDF eliminations few days ago.

Numerous mobilizations have been organized in Morocco this week to support the people of Palestine and denounce Israel’s crimes.
