Over the past 48 hours, the Israeli army has escalated their aerial and ground attacks against the Gaza Strip. At least five Palestinians, including children, have been killed, and more than 30 others, including 6 women and 12 children, have been wounded. 

Four of these deaths and 38 of the injuries, some of them serious, resulted from an Israeli attack in the al-Shoja’iya neighborhood east of Gaza City which occurred on Sunday. 

The Israeli army said that four soldiers were injured when an "anti-tank missile was fired at an IDF patrol along the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip”.

On the first day of the attack, Shifa hospital struggled to deal with the number of injured Palestinians.

In response to Israeli attacks, Palestinian fighters have been sending rockets to Israel while Israel continues to attack different locations in the Gaza Strip, including during the funeral of one of the Palestinians killed in Jabaliya.
