Rescue and ambulance crews and volunteers in the Gaza Strip recovered 160 dead bodies from under the rubble and from the streets and roads, during the past 24 hours, which brings the number of dead since the start of the Israeli aggression on the 7th of last October to more than 15,000, including more than 6,150. children and more than 4 thousand women.
Local sources in the Gaza Strip reported that rescue crews have so far relied on manual and primitive methods to retrieve the bodies of the dead, in light of the lack of machinery and equipment to remove the rubble.

Despite the “truce,” the occupation prevented citizens displaced to the south of the Gaza Strip from returning to their cities and towns in the north, and the occupation forces stationed on Salah al-Din Street fired bullets at citizens who tried to reach the north to inspect their homes and search for their missing family members, which led to the death of three people. citizens and injuring others.
