Gaza: 76 Palestinians killed, 110 injured by Israeli bombardment last 24 hours

Gaza City, (Al Jazeera, OCHA, Wafa): Between the afternoon of 27 February and 11:00 on 28 February, according to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Gaza, 76 Palestinians were killed, and 110 Palestinians were injured by Israeli bombing in Gaza. Between 7 October 2023 and 11:00 on 28 February 2024, at least 29,954 Palestinians were killed, including 12,300 children by indiscriminate bombing by Israel in Gaza and 70,325, including 8,663 children, were injured, according to MoH in Gaza. 8,500 Palestinians are missing.

On 26 February, at about 13:30, two Palestinians were reportedly killed when a house in eastern Al Bureij, in Deir al Balah, was hit.
On 26 February, at about 17:00, five Palestinians were reportedly killed when a house in Al Qarara area, in northern Khan Younis, was hit.
On 26 February, at about 19:00, eight Palestinians including three children were reportedly killed, and others were injured, when a house in the vicinity of Kuwait Hospital, in central Rafah, was hit.
On 26 February, at about 21:00, three Palestinians were reportedly killed, and others were injured, when a house was hit in Deir al Balah.

On 27 February, MoH reported that some 120 patients still require medical evacuation from Nasser Hospital, the largest hospital in southern Gaza, which has become non-functional and requires urgent repairs to restore running water and electricity, and to cope with the disposal of solid waste and sewage overflow.

MoH also called for the release of 70 health personnel who were detained by Israeli forces during a raid on the hospital, following weeks of heavy fighting in its vicinity and shelling that caused damage to the orthopaedic department.

Between 18 and 23 February, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) evacuated 72 critically wounded and sick patients from the hospital, with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and OCHA.

As of 28 February, 64 per cent of hospitals in Gaza have become non-functional (23 out of 36), with the remainder only partially or minimally functional, according to WHO. The situation is especially critical in Rafah where the influx of internally displaced persons (IDPs) has overwhelmed available hospital bed capacities, and in northern Gaza where access by Emergency Medical Teams (EMTs) remains challenging. Between 7 October and 20 February, WHO documented 378 attacks on health care across Gaza that resulted in the killing of 659 people and the injury of 843 others.

The food insecurity and malnutrition crisis in Gaza is intensifying.

Food Security Sector (FSS) partners are reporting a lack of sufficient basic food supplies and an urgent need to import the agricultural inputs necessary for reactivating domestic production of essential fresh food, such as eggs, vegetables, meat, fish and milk.

Children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, the elderly, people with underlying health conditions, and tens of thousands of injured persons are at high risk of malnutrition, as are hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in northern Gaza, which has been largely cut off from assistance despite some relief efforts.

In a briefing to the UN Security Council on food security risks in Gaza on 27 February, Director of OCHA Coordination Division, Mr. Ramesh Rajasingham, highlighted recommendations to ensure, among others, “the lifting of restrictions on fishing activity, access to farmland and the entry of agricultural products,” warning that if no action is taken, “widespread famine in Gaza is almost inevitable.”

Gaza Health Ministry says six children are dead in north Gaza from dehydration and malnutrition at Kamal Adwan and al-Shifa hospitals, and others are in critical condition.

A group of 55 international journalists have signed an open letter demanding that Israel grant the press “free and unfettered access” to Gaza so that they can report on the war. Israel has largely denied reporters access to Gaza, where many Palestinian journalists have been killed.

Al-Awda Hospital, the last functional hospital in northern Gaza, has suspended operations, citing severe shortages of fuel and basic medical supplies. Israel has consistently blocked large portions of medical aid from reaching northern Gaza.

Project Hope has said that 21 percent of pregnant women treated by the humanitarian group in Gaza over the last three weeks are suffering from malnutrition, which can be especially dangerous for pregnant women and newborn children.

Motasem A Dalloul, a Palestinian journalist based in Gaza City, has said that his pregnant wife and three-year-old son, along with 20 other people, have been killed in an Israeli bombardment of a residential compound.

On X, he posted a picture of his dead wife, Riham, and son, Abu Baker.

The journalist has been tweeting for days about the lack of food in Gaza City, as well as the lack of humanitarian aid in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Several Palestinian civilians were reported killed or injured over the last few hours in a series of Israeli aerial and artillery strikes in the central and southern Gaza Strip, according to medical reports.

In Khan Yunis province, at least six civilians were killed and several others injured as Israeli airstrikes targeted the town of Al-Qarara, local sources reported.

Additionally, casualties were reported as a result of the Israeli bombardment of a residential square in Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

Simultaneously, Israeli fighter jets launched at least two missiles towards the same area, resulting in fatalities and injuries among the local Palestinian residents.

The Israeli artillery also fired shells towards a building in the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Yunis, causing a fire to break out.

Meanwhile, medical and civil defense teams successfully recovered the body of a female Palestinian, two days after an Israeli airstrike targeted her family’s home in Rafah, southern Gaza.

At least two civilians today were killed and others were injured in the Israeli artillery shelling of several homes in the Wadi Gaza area, in the central Gaza Strip.

Earlier today, Israeli fighter jets carried out intense airstrikes that targeted several neighbourhoods in the Gaza Strip, which resulting in the killing of six Palestinians and causing injuries to 22 others.

Medical sources reported that three people were killed after being targeted with artillery shelling by the Israeli occupation army while waiting for aid trucks on the Al-Rashid coastal road, west of Gaza City.

Israeli aerial and artillery strikes targeted two houses in the Tal Al-Hawa neighborhood, southwest of Gaza City.

Meanwhile, Israeli shelling also targeted the Sheikh Ajlin neighborhood, resulting in the killing of three people and the injury of about six others.

Israeli warplanes further carried out intense airstrikes that targeted several homes in the Al-Zaytoun neighborhood, causing multiple casualties. Ambulances were unable to reach the targeted locations due to the ongoing Israeli artillery shelling as well as drone-fired shots at anything in motion.

Simultaneously, Israeli fighter jets intensively fired around ten missiles at civilians’ homes in the Al-Sabra and Al-Rimal Al-Janoubi neighborhoods in Gaza City, causing several casualties among citizens.

In the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, Israeli air force carried out seven missiles strikes targeting the eastern and central areas. The strikes resulted in dozens of causalities.

According to Israeli government 1,139 Israelis were killed by Hamas on 7 October in southern Israel and 134 Israelis and foreign nationals are still detained by Hamas in Gaza.
