Israeli Bombing Of Gaza Kills 125 People Despite Ongoing Cairo Truce Talks

Heavy Israeli bombardment of Gaza overnight killed at least 125 people, according to the health ministry in Gaza, against the backdrop of talks in Cairo aimed at reaching a truce.

As the attacks raged, the UN humanitarian agency OCHA said Israeli forces had issued fresh evacuation orders for a section of Khan Yunis housing an estimated half a million residents and displaced people.

The orders came as the World Food Programme warned that Gaza faces what it labelled as “catastrophic food insecurity”, and as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres took Israel to task over its rejection of a two-state solution ,  seen by the United States as the only path to a durable peace.

The heaviest fighting was taking place in Khan Yunis, the birthplace of Hamas’s Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar, accused of being the mastermind of the October 7 attacks that sparked the recent Israeli attacks.
