Gaza death toll surpasses 9,000 as Israel strikes refugee camp again

Share This

The war between Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian militant group, is closing in on the Gaza Strip’s main population centre as the death toll continues to mount.


On Tuesday, dozens of people died after an Israeli strike targeting a Hamas commander hit the Jabalya refugee camp in northern Gaza.


The Jabalya refugee camp is said to be the largest refugee camp in Gaza, home to thousands of civilians sheltering from the conflict.

Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry said 50 people were killed and 150 wounded. But a nearby hospital said it received 400 casualties, including 120 dead.

A fresh round of bombardment intensified on Thursday morning after Israel again bombed the densely populated Gaza Strip from land, sea, and air in its campaign to wipe out the Islamist group after its deadly cross-border rampage into Israel on October 7.


Bashar Mourad, director of the Al Quds hospital in Gaza City where up to 14,000 displaced people are reportedly sheltering, told CNN that the air strikes were “getting closer to the hospital”.

However, Palestinians and hundreds of foreign nationals only started crossing into Egypt on Wednesday.

Yesterday, (Wednesday), the apex bank began clearing the backlog of outstanding Retail SMIS obligations. The total amount cleared is yet to be ascertained.”

The development comes barely 24 hours after the chairman of Air Peace alleged that the Central Bank of Nigeria owes his firm $24 million, six months after lodgment amid the foreign exchange crisis.


Recall that the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, disclosed last week that the country would soon receive an inflow of $10 billion in foreign currency to mitigate the forex crisis.
