Israeli forces have intensified their military operations in Gaza, with tanks advancing into central areas and an airstrike in Rafah resulting in the deaths of at least 20 people and injuring 55 others. The Palestinian health authorities have confirmed a significant increase in the death toll, with 210 people killed in the past 24 hours, bringing the total casualties of the war to 21,320. The main focus of the fighting is in central areas south of the wetlands, where Israeli forces have urged civilians to evacuate as their tanks close in.

Additionally, thousands of people fleeing the affected districts are seeking refuge in overcrowded areas, with concerns that Israeli forces are attempting to provoke a new exodus. The situation has prompted a stark warning from the UN rights chief, who highlighted the unprecedented violence against Palestinians and called for an immediate halt to the dehumanization and violence. The report also underscores the catastrophic hunger crisis in Gaza, exacerbated by the total siege imposed by Israel. The escalating violence and human rights violations in the region demand urgent international attention and action to address the dire humanitarian situation.
