Israeli forces bombarded Al-Awda Hospital in northern Gaza as clashes, heavy fighting and artillery shelling are reported in every area of the besieged Strip. 

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on countries that suspended their funding to UNRWA to restore it, while Washington admitted that it did not independently verify Israel’s claims. 

The Ansarallah (Houthi) group targeted the American destroyer “USS Greeley” with missiles and EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell vowed to send a force to the Red Sea. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 26,751 Palestinians have been killed, and 65,636 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
