On the 93rd day of the Israeli war on Gaza, journalists were subjected to new targeting, as journalist Hamza Al-Dahdouh, son of Al-Jazeera correspondent Wael Al-Dahdouh, and journalist Mustafa Thuraya, were martyred, while fighting raged between the resistance and the occupation forces in the axes of the central region.

Events continued in the West Bank as well, where a number of Palestinians were killed by Israeli bullets, most of them in Jenin, while the occupation announced the killing of a female soldier and the injury of 4 soldiers in clashes in the city, and the injury of two policemen in a vehicular attack northwest of Jerusalem.

Gaza Martyrs

The government's media office in Gaza announced Sunday afternoon that the death toll had risen to 22,835 martyrs and 58,416 wounded since the beginning of the war.

In the northern area, more than 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli shelling of a house in Fallujah in Jabalya refugee camp, 30 others were killed in the central area following the bombing of the UNRWA Maghazi school, and more than 70 Palestinians were killed in the southern Gaza Strip.

Targeting journalists

Journalists Hamza al-Dahdouh – the son of colleague Wael al-Dahdouh – and Mustafa Thuraya were killed, and journalist Hazem Rajab was wounded by Israeli shelling near Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, and journalist Ali Abu Ajwa was killed in a bombing on Gaza City. This brings the number of journalists killed since the war began to 110, according to the government media office.

Al Jazeera Media Network strongly condemned the assassination of the journalists and vowed to take legal action to prosecute the perpetrators of the crimes against them.

Battles for Gaza

Battles intensified in the central region, as well as in the southern Gaza Strip, as the Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), announced that its fighters destroyed two Israeli tanks, a personnel carrier and a bulldozer in the Maghazi and Al-Bureij refugee camps, and announced the explosion of two tunnels and a minefield with Israeli soldiers.

The clashes spread to Nuseirat camp and the town of al-Zawaida in the central Gaza Strip, according to an Al Jazeera correspondent. On the other hand, the IDF announced the discovery of tunnel openings in the central area and the destruction of a rocket-propelled grenade complex in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.

West Bank Developments

Two Israeli policemen were lightly injured in a vehicular attack at the Beit Iksa military checkpoint, northwest of Jerusalem, while Israeli occupation forces killed the suspected perpetrator and killed a Palestinian woman and a 3-year-old girl, according to Israeli Army Radio.

On the other hand, an Israeli soldier from the special unit of the border guards was killed in clashes with Palestinian resistance fighters in Jenin at dawn on Sunday, while the correspondent of Al-Jazeera reported the death of 7 young men - including 4 brothers - as a result of shelling carried out by an Israeli march near the southern entrance to Jenin, and another young man from the town of Abwein, north of Ramallah, was killed by Israeli bullets.

Lebanon Front

The Israeli military acknowledged on Sunday that damage had been sustained at the Meron air traffic control base but said there was no risk to the base to continue.

Lebanon's Hezbollah announced on Saturday that it had targeted the base with 62 rockets as part of what it described as the initial response to the assassination of Saleh al-Arouri, deputy head of Hamas' political bureau, in an air strike in Beirut's southern suburbs.

On Sunday, Hezbollah continued to target Israeli positions and gatherings of soldiers across the border, while Israeli media reported a direct hit on a house in the town of Metulla by an anti-armor missile fired from southern Lebanon.

Qatari-US Talks

The Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, stressed during his meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Doha the need to work on an immediate ceasefire and protect civilians in Gaza.

Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said he discussed with the US secretary of state an attempt to prevent the conflict from spreading in the region.

Blinken said in his remarks in Doha that displaced Palestinians should be able to return to their homes in Gaza, criticizing statements by some Israeli officials calling for their displacement outside the Strip.
