10 Palestinians Killed and 40 Others Injured in a Brutal Israeli Carnage.

Rafah, Palestine -- 10 Palestinians have been killed, 8 of whom are civilians, and 40 others have been wounded, of whom 9 children and a woman seriously wounded, in a new brutal carnage committed by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in the ongoing Israeli invasion of Rafah refugee camp, south of Gaza Strip.

Two of the killed Palestinians have been killed in a fire exchange with IOF took place yesterday evening on the road of “kesofeem” near Ghosh Kateef Israeli-inhabited illegitimate settlement, south of Deir Al-Balah city in the middle of Gaza Strip.

Director of “Abu Yousef Al-Najar hospital” in Rafah Palestinian city reported that the killed Palestinians have been shot by live ammunition in the upper part of their bodies of whom he mentioned the Palestinian citizen Rami Ahmed, 22, who died of shots in head, abdomen and chest. He also mentioned the Palestinian medic Weaam Mousa, 26, who died of a tank missile in the head while trying to help one of the Palestinian injured.

Early, Palestinians security resources reported in a phone call with IPC that IOF blocked Rafah crossing (the Palestinians only outlet to the outside world through Egypt.) The same resources added that IOF stationing in the crossing open fire at the Palestinians citizens using guns with silencers. As a result the Palestinian security member Ahmed Al-Najar died of serious wound in his head while on duty arranging the traffic.

Palestinian medical resources affirmed that the ambulances and the Palestinian medical teams have problems accessing the invaded Palestinian refugee camp due to heavy shooting that the Palestinian citizens living there have to move the injured Palestinians out of the camp to reach the nearest ambulances.

IPC correspondent reported:” early, 30 Israeli tanks and military vehicles along with many bulldozers escorted by apache helicopters thrust 500 meters deep in Rafah refugee camp, opened fire heavily at the Palestinian civilians in the area killing 8 Palestinians and injuring 40 others. The number will likely mounts.”

IPC correspondent added:” the Israeli bulldozers demolished a big number of the Palestinian-owned homes, cut off electricity and the phone lines and sabotaged the sewage pipes, the Israeli demolition of the Palestinian-owned property is still ongoing up to now.
