Forty-five people in a tent camp in the Gaza city of Rafah due to an Israeli attack on Monday. The cause were global leaders who urged the implementation of a World Court ruling to halt Israel’s assault. The Palestinian families rushed to hospitals in order to prepare their dead for burial from the set tents and rickety shelters ablaze.

“The whole world is witnessing Rafah getting burnt up by Israel and no one is doing anything to stop it,” Bassam, a Rafah resident, said. Eastern and Central areas of the city were bombarded by the Israeli tanks continuously on Monday, that lead to killing of eight local officials. Before this, on Sunday, eight rockets were fired from the Rafah area and were then intercepted. A minister then said, this showed the need for continued operations against Hamas. The air strike was called “very grave” by Israeli’s top military prosecutor and said that investigation was under way.

*The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) regrets any harm to non-combatants during the war,” Major-General Yifat Tomer Yerushalmi said at a conference on Monday. This attack took place in the Tel Al-Sultan neighborhood where thousands of people are sheltered since two weeks when Israeli forces began a ground offensive in the East of Rafah.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he was “outraged” over Israel’s latest attacks. “These operations must stop. There are no safe areas in Rafah for Palestinian civilians,” he said on X. Annalena Baerbock, foreign minister of Germany and Josep Borrell, the EU foreign policy chief said, “International humanitarian law applies for all, also for Israel’s conduct of the war.”
