GAZA CITY, Palestine
The government media office in Gaza on Thursday accused Israel of deliberately targeting bakeries to cause large casualties.
“Israel directly struck five bakeries or hit nearby in different areas in Gaza, leaving scores dead and hundreds injured,” the office said in a statement.
It accused Israel of seeking “to cause the largest possible number of victims and exacerbate the humanitarian situation in Gaza.”
“These crimes show that there are no red lines for the Israeli occupation,” the statement said.
Israel has launched non-stop airstrikes on the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on Israeli border towns on Oct. 7.
At least 3,785 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza, while the figure stands at more than 1,400 people in Israel.
Gaza is experiencing a dire humanitarian crisis, with no electricity, while water, food, fuel, and medical supplies are running out.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for an “immediate humanitarian ceasefire” to ease the “epic human suffering.”Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
