The “Israeli” aggression on Gaza has entered its 172nd consecutive day. The death toll has reached 32,333 martyrs and 74,694 injured since Oct. 7, 2023.

Francesca Albanese, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territories, in a report named “Anatomy of a Genocide”, said there were clear indications that “Israel” had violated three of the five acts listed under the UN genocide convention.

"The overwhelming nature and scale of Israel's assault on Gaza and the destructive conditions of life it has inflicted reveal an intent to physically destroy Palestinians as a group," she said in a report, which was immediately rejected by the Israeli Occupation as an "obscene inversion of reality".

Security Council resolution

The United Nations Security Council adopted yesterday, Monday, its first resolution calling for an "immediate ceasefire" in Gaza after 14 countries backed the draft resolution put forward while the United States abstained.

Russia's ambassador, Vasily Nebenzya, emphasized the importance of reinstating the word 'permanent' in a resolution, highlighting its crucial role in ensuring stability. Nebenzya firmly stated that any attempt to alter this term could provoke Israeli Occupation to resume its offensive in Gaza.

The ambassador's statement comes amidst mounting international efforts to broker a ceasefire in the famine-ridden region.

“Israeli” casualties

The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) announced earlier today that 31 soldiers were injured in battles within the Gaza Strip over the past 48 hours.

The IOF’s death toll currently stands at 596 since Oct. 7, 2023, with 252 deaths recorded since the start of the ground invasion of Gaza on Oct. 27.

Since the onset of the “Israeli” aggression on Gaza, 3,130 occupation soldiers have been injured, with 490 in critical condition, 831 moderately injured, and 1,809 sustaining minor injuries.
