Israeli forces carried out at least four massacres in the last 24 hours, killing and wounding scores of Palestinians. 

 A huge explosion occurred at a military base used by the Popular Mobilization Forces south of Baghdad. The explosion was the result of an air strike of unknown origin. Tel Aviv denied responsibility.

The Committee to Protect Journalists said that Israel’s war on Gaza is “the most dangerous conflict for journalists since records began in 1992.”

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 34,049 Palestinians have been killed, and 76,901 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
