On the 146th day of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, the occupation army committed a horrific massacre that claimed the lives of more than 112 martyrs and injured more than 250 others who were waiting to receive aid in the north of the besieged Strip.

While Israel announced the withdrawal of the Paratroopers Brigade from the battles in the Gaza Strip, after 3 continuous months of fighting in Khan Yunis, soldiers said to the occupation that there is no systematic solution to find and destroy Hamas’ tunnels.

For his part, US President Joe Biden said that the ceasefire in Gaza may not happen next Monday, after he previously spoke about this date.

Flour massacre

More than 112 Palestinians were martyred and about 800 others were injured in what was called the “flour massacre” in the northern Gaza Strip, where the occupation forces targeted them on Wednesday night as they gathered to obtain aid at the Nabulsi roundabout, while the US President said that “the aid incident will complicate negotiations regarding the hostages.”

In the latest death toll, Al Jazeera's correspondent reported - this evening - that the number of martyrs had risen to 112, indicating the difficulty of providing a complete count due to the intense Israeli bombing of the area located in Gaza City near Al-Rashid Street (Al-Bahr Street).

Al Jazeera's correspondent added that the occupation vehicles swept away a number of the bodies of the martyrs who were killed in the massacre.

The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades - the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) - re-published a clip of Israeli prisoners who had announced the loss of contact with the group responsible for their detention. The brigades announced in the clip that they would announce their fate tomorrow.

On December 23, Abu Ubaida, spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades, suggested that five Israeli prisoners were likely killed as a result of the occupation’s ongoing raids on the Gaza Strip, after the brigades announced that they had lost contact with the group responsible for them.
