Palestinians lost their relatives in Israeli raids in Gaza (Reuters)

On the 136th day of the Israeli war, the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip continues, causing more humanitarian crises. This coincides with the International Court of Justice beginning hearings on the legal consequences of the occupation of the Palestinian territories in 1967.

The Palestinian resistance targeted an Israeli force west of Khan Yunis, at a time when the statements between Brazil and Israel developed into a diplomatic crisis that led to the withdrawal of ambassadors from the two countries. While the European Union announced the launch of a defensive mission in the Red Sea against Houthi attacks.

Hospitals without electricity

In the humanitarian situation, the Palestine Red Crescent Society said that the water desalination plant at Al Amal Hospital in Khan Yunis was disrupted after it was targeted by the Israeli occupation forces. The association added that the amount of drinking water available at Al Amal Hospital is only sufficient for 3 days.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza stated that hospitals in northern Gaza are without electricity and the occupation is preventing fuel.

The Ministry explained that 25 of its staff and 136 patients are still in Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip, without electricity, water, food, oxygen, and without treatment capabilities, amid the occupation’s refusal to bring in humanitarian aid.

Diplomatic crisis between Brazil and Israel

Reuters announced that Brazilian President Lula da Silva withdrew his country's ambassador from Israel. These developments come after da Silva accused - yesterday, Sunday - Israel of committing “genocide” in the Gaza Strip, likening what it is doing there to the “Holocaust” during World War II.

Later, the Israeli Foreign Ministry announced that it had summoned the Brazilian ambassador to “reprimand” him.

Field situation

The Al-Qassam Brigades - the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) - said that it targeted, with two shells, an Israeli force of 15 soldiers barricaded in a house west of Khan Yunis, killing and wounding its members.

Al-Qassam also reported that its fighters sniped two Israeli soldiers and clashed with a foot force, leaving them dead and wounded in the Al-Amal neighborhood, west of Khan Yunis, south of the Gaza Strip.

For its part, the Al-Quds Brigades - the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement - said that it bombed with a missile strike gatherings of Israeli soldiers in the Netzarim axis in the northeastern central region.

In another context, Israeli government spokesman Elon Levy said that they will continue to do everything in their power to release the prisoners detained in Gaza. He said that "Hamas uses hospitals to launch rockets and take hostages," which the movement denies.

Settlers attack

The Palestinian Prisoners' Club said that since yesterday evening, the Israeli occupation forces have arrested at least 25 citizens in the West Bank, including former prisoners.

Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that settlers launched a major attack on the outskirts of the town of Burqa, north of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, and set fire to a number of homes and vehicles.

A local Palestinian photographer documented, through a video clip that he shared via the “Story” feature on his Instagram page on Monday morning, young men throwing stones at occupation vehicles during their withdrawal from the Al-Masayef neighborhood in the city of Ramallah.

The occupation forces carried out massive incursions in the West Bank, including neighborhoods in Ramallah and Nablus, from Sunday night until Monday dawn. They also raided the town of Jabal Mukaber, south of Jerusalem, and forced some young men to sign papers not to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque during the month of Ramadan.
