Shafaq News / Israeli airstrikes in Gaza claimed the lives of at least 140 individuals, Hamas announced on Tuesday morning.
The militant group condemned the Israeli military's actions as a "genocidal war and massacres," highlighting the obliteration of numerous civilian homes with missiles and bombs.
Hamas' media office released a statement, in which it said, "More than 140 martyrs and hundreds wounded in this night where the occupation committed a campaign of extermination, destroying dozens of homes over the heads of innocent civilians."
Earlier, the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reported dozens of Palestinians, including children, killed, and scores injured, some critically, in Israeli air raids launched by fighter jets early Tuesday. The attacks targeted homes in Khan Younis camp, the Qarara area, and Rafah in the southern region, as well as Jabalia town in northern Gaza, near the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, and in Bureij camp in central Gaza.
Wafa confirmed 23 Palestinian fatalities, including children, and at least 45 individuals sustaining various severe injuries, transported to Nasser Hospital due to the Israeli airstrikes, which struck multiple residential homes and a fuel station in central and eastern Khan Younis.
