In the start to the new year, Israeli warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on central Gaza, intensifying tensions in the already volatile region. The strikes occurred in the early hours of January 1, 2024, casting a shadow over the hopes for a peaceful beginning to the year and a continuation of Israeli War Crimes.
Reports from the ground indicate that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) targeted civilians in central Gaza.
Palestinian authorities have condemned the Israeli airstrikes, labeling them as a disproportionate use of force that endangers civilian lives. In a statement, Palestinian officials accused Israel of violating international law and called for immediate intervention from the international community to address the escalating crisis.
