Palestine health ministry: 24 Martyr, 203 injured from Israeli strikes
Israeli aggression is killing more children and innocents.
At least 24 people have been martyred and 203 others suffered injuries as a result of the Israeli airstrikes targeting Gaza, according to the Palestinian health ministry on Sunday.
"As a result of Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, 24 people died, including six children and two women, and 203 sustained injuries," the ministry said in a statement.
This morning, while intensifying its brutal aggression on the Gaza Strip, Israeli occupation forces launched a wave of arrests, which included 19 members of the Islamic Jihad movement in the occupied West Bank.

The IOF statement said that soldiers and agents from the Shin Bet internal security agency arrested 20 Palestinians in early morning raids in the occupied West Bank, claiming that 19 of them are members of the Islamic Jihad movement (PIJ).
Palestinian resistance factions in the Jenin refugee camp stated that all roads to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank will be under fire.
The factions added during a joint press conference, at dawn on Saturday, in conjunction with the continuation of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, that "all roads to Israeli settlements will be under the Resistance’s fire, and the movement of Israeli settlers within the occupied West Bank will be restricted.”
The factions warned the Israeli occupation of committing any other folly against the Gaza Strip, renewing their commitment to continue the path of resistance.
Sources in the Palestinian resistance told Al Mayadeen today, Saturday, that Egypt offered to mediate a ceasefire for a few hours between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian resistance. But the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) responded by saying now was the time to respond to the Israeli occupation's crimes, sources in the Palestinian resistance told Al Mayadeen.

"Egypt was told that the resistance's response would take an indefinite amount of time to be exacted," the sources added. "Coordination between Hamas and the PIJ is on high in terms of managing the battlefield."
Earlier today, PIJ official Daoud Shehab said there was no talk about a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
