An Israeli bomb targeted a wedding hall in the Nuseirat camp, resulting in the deaths of at least 26 individuals.

According to a correspondent from Al-Mamlaka, a Jordanian news channel, the wedding hall had become a temporary refuge for displaced families who were forced to flee areas which had been heavily bombarded by Israeli forces. These areas included both Gaza City in the northern regions and the eastern regions of the Gaza Strip. Shockingly, Israel pursued these families even when they sought safety in areas classified as secure, located south of Wadi Gaza.

In addition to the attack on the wedding hall, the Israeli occupation forces also targeted homes in Beit Lahia, situated in the northern Gaza Strip. The correspondent from Al-Mamlaka further revealed that a house adjacent to the Indonesian Hospital was attacked, resulting in significant damage to the hospital. This hospital plays a crucial role in providing healthcare services to the northern regions of the Gaza Strip.
