deadly strike has hit a centre in Gaza City, housing those displaced by the ongoing conflict. The strike, which targeted a sports centre repurposed to shelter families who have lost their homes, resulted in the tragic loss of at least 15 lives.

The attack has drawn sharp criticism from international observers and human rights organizations, which have condemned the targeting of civilian infrastructure. The bombing of the Saad bin Abi Waqqas Mosque in the Jabalia refugee camp has also been reported, adding to the toll of injuries and destruction.

Over the last 24 hours, Gaza's health ministry has reported at least 71 Palestinians killed and 112 wounded, signaling a significant escalation in the conflict. The international community, including Belgium's minister of development cooperation and urban policy, Caroline Gennez, has called for sustained pressure on Israel to "stop starving civilians and children" amid the crisis.

As the war on Gaza enters its 177th day, the death toll continues to rise, with at least 32,623 Palestinians reported killed and 75,092 wounded since the conflict began on October 7. The situation remains dire, with aid vehicles targeted in attacks and a famine setting in across the battered Gaza Strip. This latest incident underscores the urgent need for a ceasefire and a concerted effort to address the humanitarian needs of the population.
