The death toll from a Israeli bomb blast near the siege has risen to 139, while 11 have been killed by Israeli troops in the West Bank.
The Israeli bombing on the Gaza Strip continued for the fifth day in a row, as Israeli airstrikes hit the refugee camp where 10 Palestinians, including eight children, were killed.
On Saturday morning, paramedics continued to try to retrieve the bodies under the rubble as many people believed he was dead. Hamas, the group that oversees the siege, responded to recent threats by firing on several Israeli rocks in the southern Israeli towns of Askhelon and Ashdod. No injuries were reported.
At least 139 Palestinians, including 40 children, have been killed in Gaza since Monday. Another 950 were injured. In the West Bank in the West Bank, Israeli forces have said so killed at least 11 Palestinian protesters are protesting against the ongoing occupation of Israel and the bombing of Gaza. Fighting between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters continued into the night in East Jerusalem.
At least eight people in Israel have also been killed. Israeli forces say hundreds of rockets have been moved from Gaza to various parts of Israel and have added additional missiles near the eastern part of the country.
As the violence escalates, the economic crisis intensifies with thousands of Palestinian families hiding in United Nations-run schools in northern Gaza fleeing Israeli weapons. The UN estimates that about 10,000 Palestinians have left their homes in Gaza inside Israel.
Palestinians were set up on Saturday to commemorate the 73rd anniversary cleansing the nations from their homeland and Zionist armies to form the state of Israel. The event is called the Nakba, or “Woe”, in Palestinian history.
