The Palestinian Interior Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that residential areas east of Jabaliya and Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip were subjected to intense aerial bombardment, and Israeli forces have yet to comment on the allegations.

– Israel bombarded Gaza with airstrikes, hitting hundreds of targets and reducing neighborhoods to rubble after Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant said it had “removed all restrictions” on forces in their war against Hamas.
