The Israeli aggression against Gaza persists for the 146th day, with tragic consequences emerging as dozens of martyrs have lost their lives in the bombings of the Nuseirat, Bureij, and Khan Yunis camps.

At least 6 citizens were killed in Al-Qarara, while 25, mostly children and women, died in Nuseirat and Bureij.

Local sources have confirmed a devastating death toll, with 25 martyrs arriving at Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah.

The majority of the victims were children and women, a somber reminder of the human cost of this ongoing conflict.

The Gaza European Hospital has also received the bodies of five more martyrs, with additional lives lost due to the difficulty of reaching victims in targeted areas.

As if the aggression and death toll weren't distressing enough, tens of thousands of Palestinians are living in dire conditions in the Jabalia refugee camp.

Hunger and deprivation are widespread, with children eagerly awaiting even the smallest amount of food.

The situation is so dire that the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that Israeli occupation forces have been shooting at Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid in Gaza City, exacerbating an already desperate situation.

As a result, the rate of general acute malnutrition in children between the ages of six months and 59 months has soared to 16.2%, exceeding the critical threshold established by the World Health Organization.

The situation is dire, with UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini describing Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip as being 'on the brink of famine and have no place to go.'

This comes just a short time after UNRWA announced that Palestinians in the region were facing starvation due to the ongoing war.

The toll of this aggression, both in terms of human lives and the suffering of the survivors, continues to rise, with no clear end in sight
