Ramallah, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) Dozens of Palestinians were killed or injured today by Israeli bombings against densely populated areas in the Gaza Strip, which is suffering a severe crisis due to the lack of food, medicine and electricity.
At least 17 people lost their lives, including minors and women, after warplane attacks against homes in the Nuseirat refugee camp, in the center of the coastal enclave, the official Wafa news agency reported.
According to the source, an unknown number died after raids against a school in the Al-Faluja area, which housed refugees, and nine houses in the town of Beit Lahia.
The Israeli bombings also targeted communications towers in Gaza City and the north of the Strip, which caused the complete breakdown of Internet and telephone services in that area, he added.
Wafa specified that Israeli artillery launched shells against the towns of Alma al-Shaab, Jabal al-Labouneh and Jabal al-Alam.
Meanwhile, the situation around the northern Indonesian Hospital continues to deteriorate as Israeli troops tighten the siege on the complex, where there are still numerous patients, doctors and refugees.
This Tuesday, the top figure of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), Ismail Haniyeh, announced that an agreement with Israel on a temporary truce is close to being finalized, which would include the exchange of prisoners and more entry of humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza.
