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.
