Israeli Forces intensified their attacks in different parts of the Gaza Strip, a day after President Joe Biden left Israel after a visit where he supported the Jewish State.
According to Al Jazeera reports, Israel bombed two areas in the south.
The first attack was a point in Rafah that left about 33 people dead. There was also an attack on a house in Khan Younis, where at least 11 people, members of a family, died.
For his part, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told troops on the Gaza border that they would soon see the enclave “from the inside,” a statement that preceded an expected ground operation inside in the Palestinian enclave.
“Now you can see Gaza from afar, but soon you will see it from the inside,” he said without specifying a date. “The command is coming.”
Meanwhile, in the West Bank, which is administered by the Palestinian Authority, Israeli forces killed seven Palestinians in several incidents on Thursday.
At least 73 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank by Israeli forces or civilians since the Gaza conflict erupted on October 7, according to the Palestinian ministry.
The latest deaths were four people killed during “attacks of (Israeli) occupation” against the refugee camp of Nur Shams in the northern West Bank, according to the ministry.
Health authorities announced Thursday that another Palestinian, a 16-year-old boy, was killed by Israeli forces in the camp.
The Israeli military, contacted by AFP, did not immediately comment on the death of Nur Shams.
Troops “continue to operate to prevent terrorist activity,” according to an Army statement.
