November 19, 2023

Israel forces have attacked two more UN run agency schools targeting about four thousand civilians.  

In a tweet, United Nation Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said dozens of civilians including children have been killed during these attacks. 

According to Palestinian news agency WAFA, at least fifteen Palestinians were martyred in another Israeli airstrike targeting residential homes in west of Khan Yunis in Gaza Strip.

The Palestine Ministry of Health said the death toll has reached over twelve thousand since start of Israeli aggression.

It is reported that over thirty-six thousand civilians are still missing or under the rubble, including one thousand seven hundred and fifty children. 

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stressed U.S. President Joe Biden to immediately intervene to stop the ongoing Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people.

In a televised address on a Palestine Television, he underscored the international standing and significant influence of the U.S. on Israel.

He urged Biden to press for the entry of badly needed humanitarian aid into the besieged Gaza Strip and put an end to settler terrorism against the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

The President stressed that the Palestinian people deserve to live on their homeland with freedom and dignity.

Mahmoud Abbas pledged that they will remain steadfast on their land until they attain their legitimate rights to independence and statehood, with Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine.
