The Israeli Broadcasting Corporation said that the occupation army "is suffering from a difficult situation in Khan Yunis after being exposed to a very large ambush" there, while clashes continued between the Palestinian resistance and the occupation forces in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli Broadcasting Corporation added, "The serious security event was an ambush on the Israeli army south of Khan Yunis," noting that "the army may issue an explanation regarding what happened in Khan Yunis hours later."
Earlier, the occupation army admitted that two officers and a soldier were injured in battles in the southern Gaza Strip, while the Ministry of Health announced an increase in the number of martyrs as a result of the Israeli aggression and bombing.
On the 128th day of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, Al Jazeera’s correspondent reported that fierce clashes were taking place between the resistance and the occupation forces west of the city of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.
Also in Khan Yunis, the Israeli occupation forces launched intensive raids targeting homes surrounding the Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Yunis.
Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that clashes between the Palestinian resistance and the occupation forces continued in the vicinity of the complex, and the sounds of shelling were heard in the area, and the streets adjacent to the complex appeared empty of passers-by due to the deployment of occupation army snipers on the rooftops of houses and targeting anyone who moved.
Wounded by the occupation
At the same time, the Israeli occupation army announced that an officer from the 603rd Engineering Battalion and an officer and a soldier from a paratroopers unit were seriously injured in battles in the southern Gaza Strip.
According to Israeli army data, 2,855 officers and soldiers have been injured since the beginning of the war, and the wounds of 432 officers and soldiers are very serious.
Meanwhile, occupation army spokesman Daniel Hagari said that military operations in the Gaza Strip are continuing.
Hagari added that army forces continue to destroy infrastructure west of Khan Yunis, and that raid operations in the center and north of the Strip continue.
He pointed out that the forces, with the support of the air and naval forces, eliminated what he described as an armed cell in central Gaza.
Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that Israeli gunboats bombed the coast of Gaza City and areas west of the city, and pictures showed smoke rising as a result of new Israeli bombardment on areas east of Gaza City.
The number of martyrs increased
This comes at a time when the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip announced that the Israeli occupation committed 14 massacres against Palestinian families, killing 122 martyrs and 173 wounded during the past 24 hours.
The Ministry added that the number of martyrs of the Israeli aggression rose to 28,176 martyrs and 67,784 wounded since the start of the aggression against the Gaza Strip on October 7 last year.
In a related context, the people of Deir al-Balah mourned the bodies of dozens of martyrs at Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in the central Gaza Strip.
The people performed funeral prayers for 17 martyrs - including children and women - as a result of Israeli bombing that targeted a number of homes in the city of Deir al-Balah during the past 24 hours.
Al Jazeera's correspondent also reported that the bodies of about 100 people were recovered after the Israeli occupation forces withdrew from Tal al-Hawa and al-Rimal, most of whom were martyred by sniper bullets.
Bombing and displacement
Also in Khan Yunis, Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that the Israeli occupation forces intensified their air strikes and targeted homes surrounding the Nasser Medical Complex.
The occupation army forced the displaced people in the city of Khan Yunis to leave the Sheikh Jabr, Qandila and Zahra schools affiliated with UNRWA and head west on foot through the destroyed Al-Bahr Street, reaching the Al-Mawasi area, west of the city.
Al Jazeera's correspondent said that the displaced people, while walking along this road, are subjected to searches and their identities being checked at the occupation army checkpoints.
The occupation forces arrest displaced people and take them to unknown places for interrogation. Upon their arrival in the Al-Mawasi area, the occupation forces force the families to move north to Deir al-Balah, and south to the city of Rafah.

In the same context, the Palestinian Red Crescent said that the occupation forces bombed the main gate of Al-Amal Hospital and the vicinity of Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis.
The Red Crescent added that Al-Amal Hospital, which has been besieged for 21 days, is threatened with stopping work due to the occupation preventing the entry of fuel necessary for the operation of electricity generators.
He said that the occupation forces have been preventing the introduction of oxygen into the hospital for more than a week despite continuous coordination attempts with international organizations, which led to the death of 3 patients.
The Red Crescent also denied the validity of the reports about the occupation bringing in medical equipment, noting that the occupation forces destroyed medical devices and equipment during their storming of the hospital yesterday, Saturday.
The occupation forces also attacked the staff, beating, abusing and insulting them, and arrested 9 members of the medical and administrative staff, 4 wounded people, and 5 patients’ companions.
