The latest: developments on eighth day of IOF aggression on Gaza

With the entry of the eighth day of the Israeli Occupation's aggression on Gaza, Al-Qassam Brigades fired a barrage of rockets towards Beersheba, after the enclave witnessed a horrific massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF), leading to the death of 43 Palestinians, most of them children and women.

The IOF carried out dozens of raids and very intense and violent bombing and strikes through warplanes, artillery, military vehicles and gunboats, to wipe out entire residential neighborhoods and destroy dozens of streets, leaving scenes of destruction as if a catastrophic earthquake struck the region.

The toll of the aggression resulted in the death of 197 martyrs, including 58 children, 34 women and 15 elderly people.

Notably, according to medical data, 1,235 injuries have been reported since the beginning of the violence on Gaza.
