Ramped-up attacks and a humanitarian crisis

  • People in Rafah have been desperately lining up to get water from supply trucks as Israel has destroyed pipes across the strip. Rights groups have accused Israel of using water and food, as weapons of war. The mayor of Jabalia told Al Jazeera that Israel has destroyed three out of four water wells in the north.
  • The United States says a navy logistics vessel has set sail for the Eastern Mediterranean to establish a temporary pier in Gaza to deliver aid.
  • At least 13 Palestinians seeking refuge in Khan Younis have been killed by Israeli shelling on their tents. An air strike on the Nuseirat refugee camp killed another 13 women and children.
  • One of Rafah’s largest residential towers was hit by an Israeli strike on Saturday, displacing hundreds of people.
  • Five people were killed in attacks on Deir el-Balah in central Gaza, the Palestinian news agency Wafa reports. An aid worker employed at a US charity has also been killed in the area. The death toll now stands at 30,960, with 72,524 wounded.
  • Sweden will resume funding to UNRWA, with an initial $20m disbursement, following similar steps from Canada this week.
  • The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF) said its last remaining office in Gaza has been destroyed in an Israeli attack.

Regional tensions

  • An Israeli strike killed a family of five and injured nine other people in a village in southern Lebanon near the border with Israel, Lebanese security sources said on Saturday.
  • US President Joe Biden in an MSNBC interview made contradictory statements, saying he would continue to support Israel while also warning that there are “red lines” Tel Aviv should not cross in the war on Gaza.
  • The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) said on Saturday it shot down 15 drones fired by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis in the Red Sea area. The Houthis have been targeting Israeli-linked ships as well as US and UK ships demanding an end to Israel’s war on Gaza.

Violence in the occupied West Bank
