At least 23 people were killed in the last 24 hours as Israeli airstrikes targeted four UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) shelters in the isolated open air prison camp @ Gaza Strip.

According to the most recent UNRWA estimates, these shelters hosted nearly 20,000 combined. Nearly 10,600 people have been killed in the Gaza conflict since 7 October, including 9,061 Palestinians and more than 1,538 Israelis.

Beside the large number of casualties and massive displacements of ethnic Palestinian people, basic supplies are running low for the 2.3 million residents in Gaza due to the Israeli siege.

Scores of Palestinians have been injured after Israel targeted the entrance to Gaza’s leading medical facility, Al-Shifa Hospital.

Tens of thousands of internally displaced Palestinians have been taking refuge in and around the hospital in an effort to escape the occupation’s relentless bombing campaign.

Some 16 hospitals and 32 health centers are now out of service due to the extremely ongoing hostile Israeli bombardment.

‘A Night for Gaza’ Hosted by MEMO at the P21 Gallery in London on 2 November 2023

In a poignant show of solidarity, Londoners came together last night for ‘A Night for Gaza’, a sombre event mourning lives lost and voicing support for Palestinians facing devastating Israeli bombardment.

Hosted by MEMO at the P21 Gallery, the evening provided a space for communal grief as artists and poets shared stirring performances reflecting on the tragedy unfolding in Gaza. Attendees described a sorrowful, moving atmosphere.

The event commenced with host Victoria Brittain’s reading of Mahmoud Darwish’s evocative poem ‘We Travel Like All People’, setting a reflective tone. This was followed by a haunting spoken word piece titled ‘Forgive Me’ that left many in tears.

Recordings of bombing noises and first-hand descriptions painted a horrific picture of the aggression unfolding. Moving poems gave voice to the chaos, horror, defiance, determination and desperation inflicted on Gazans.

Readings by Palestinians conveyed the daily struggle to simply survive while dodging bombs.

While grief pervaded the venue, so too did solidarity and a sense of catharsis as attendees united to bear witness to the unfolding tragedy. For three long weeks, Londoners have watched Gaza burn from afar; last night, they came together to mourn as one.

Israeli Minister Benny Gantz said yesterday that images coming from the battle in the Gaza Strip with the Palestinian resistance fighters where Givati elite brigade soldiers are being killed were very painful.

Gantz said the Israeli army is doing everything it can and has used all its capabilities to return those being held as prisoners of war in Gaza to their homes.

Earlier in the day, the Israeli army announced the death of two soldiers in battles in the northern Gaza Strip, noting that one of them died from serious wounds he had sustained.

For his part, the Israeli Army Chief of Staff, General Herzi Halevi, said his forces have moved to an important next stage, as the army is currently engaged in a ground operation in the northern Gaza Strip, adding that the army was in the midst of a raging war.

According to Israeli media, more than 1,200 Israeli soldiers have been classified as disabled since the beginning of the war against the Gaza Strip in response to the Palestinian resistance Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.

Israeli Channel 12 TV reported that 1,210 wounded soldiers have been classified as disabled since the start of the war in the Gaza Strip, code-named e-“Iron Swords”.,fl_lossy/t_JD_ArticleMainImageFaceDetect/521063

Moreover, the army has announced that 307 soldiers have been killed since the Hamas-led attack on Israel on Saturday, 7 October. The operation involved land, sea and air strikes, as well as infiltration into several settlements in the Gaza envelope.

For the 16th day in a row, the Israeli occupation army continues to bomb the Gaza Strip heavily, destroying complete neighborhoods.

The death toll from the Israeli bombing on the besieged Gaza Strip since 7 October has reached 9,061, including 3,760 children and 2,326 women, in addition to 32,000 wounded Palestinians.

Balfour: Zionism as a serious effort to mitigate the age-old miseries created for western civilization by the presence in its midst of a body which is too long regarded as alien and even hostile, but which it was equally unable to expel or absorb

It is well said worldwide that Gaza is an open air concentration camp and as one American general said–Quote -” its like shooting fish in a barrel ” while the so called Western “civilised world ” play it down-censor it and try not to admit its a Palestinian Holocaust . Even “Nutter ” yahu has said he wants the Palestinians removed from his “holy ” Zionist paradise. So that he achieves his Talmudic dream . It will be a long time till the righteous part of the world will forgive him and his fellow Zionists. May I also Thank Baronmaya… Read more »
