The Armed Forces released this information after deciding to intensify bombings in Rafah, the southernmost city in the Gaza Strip along the border with Egypt, according to several Palestinian media.

Health authorities in Gaza reported today that at least 35 Palestinians were killed in the last 24 hours in Israeli attacks in the town, where hundreds of thousands of people from different regions of the enclave seek refuge.

In total, at least 55 Palestinians have been killed since Tuesday across the territory of the Gaza Strip, according to local officials.
