Scores of Palestinian civilians were killed over the past few hours as the ongoing Israeli relentless campaign on the Gaza Strip continues for the 93rd day in a row.

Central Gaza

In central Gaza, Israeli occupation forces bombarded the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah, resulting in the killing and injury of several civilians, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Meanwhile, Israeli artillery shelled the eastern areas of the Nuseirat refugee camp and a residence in the Zawaideh area, both located in central Gaza, leading to the death of a Palestinian woman.

Also in Deir al-Balah, several civilians were killed following an Israeli shelling, which targeted a group of civilians in Abdul Kareem Al-Aklouk Street.

Doctors Without Borders announced in a press conference on Sunday the withdrawal of its employees from the central region of the Gaza Strip, including Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah, amid increasing attacks by the Israeli occupation army.
