A bombing occurred during prayers, resulting in the martyrdom and injury of dozens of Palestinians, as reported by the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen network, citing a Gaza correspondent.

Elsewhere, local sources revealed that Israeli bombardment targeted Al-Taqwa mosque near Sheikh Radwan in the northern Gaza Strip.

Additionally, a house adjacent to Imam Al-Shafi'i mosque in the Zeitoun neighbourhood, south of Gaza, was hit, causing parts of the mosque's walls to collapse and injuring several civilians, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Israel's assault on mosques coincided with bombings in densely populated areas, including a family home in the Khan Younis camp in the southern strip, resulting in the tragic death of a child and numerous injuries.

In the town of Qarara, east of Khan Younis, Israel launched an air raid, resulting in the loss of six civilian lives, including women and children, and injuring several others, as reported by WAFA.

Similarly, in the central Gaza Strip, an Israeli strike targeting a residential building in the Nuseirat refugee camp and a house in the Bureij refugee camp led to the deaths and injuries of numerous civilians.

As Israel persists in targeting medical facilities, intense bombardment surrounds the Indonesian hospital in the northern Gaza Strip.

Earlier on the day, Israeli forces conducted a raid on Gaza's largest hospital, Al-Shifa, where numerous patients, including newborns, are stranded with depleting supplies and no electricity.

For days, Israeli airstrikes have targeted the hospital's outskirts on the western side of Gaza City.

These developments unfold amid Israel's extensive air and ground invasion, claiming the lives of more than 11,300 people, with over two-thirds of the casualties being women and children, as reported by Gaza's health ministry.
