Scores of Palestinians dead as Israel initiates intense bombardment in Gaza.

Israel launched a genocidal war in the Gaza Strip on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance group Hamas carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for increasing atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Israeli airstrikes have targeted the Gaza Strip anew, resulting in the deaths of numerous civilians, including children, in the blockaded Palestinian region. According to medical sources cited by the Palestinian Wafa news agency on Tuesday, 14 individuals perished in overnight Israeli bombardment of a three-story residence owned by the Karaja family, located south of the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. The report further indicated that children were among the casualties of the strike, which also left several others wounded.

Updated reports indicate that the death toll has risen to a minimum of 20 individuals.

In the meantime, numerous Palestinians lost their lives in Israeli airstrikes targeting the Jabalia refugee camp and the city of Beit Lahia in northern Gaza. Residents of Jabalia reported the advancement of Israeli tanks toward the camp.

A resident of Jabalia told Al Jazeera that civilians are fleeing in the streets, stating, "We've been displaced from one location to another... we're unsure of where to seek refuge."
