Israel’s war on Gaza live: Israel bombs Gaza camp, raids West Bank towns

  • Israeli attacks on both the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank continue. In Gaza, Israeli forces bombed the Nuseirat refugee camp while in the West Bank, a raid in Tubas governorate has killed at least two Palestinians.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) has said destruction in Khan Younis and damage to the medical sector was “disproportionate to anything one can imagine” after the Israeli army withdrawal.
  • USAID chief Samantha Power has become the first US official to publicly say famine is happening in northern Gaza, after she said she agreed with a UN-backed assessment of hunger in the enclave.
  • At least 33,634 Palestinians have been killed and 76,214 injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7. The death toll in Israel from Hamas’s October 7 attacks stands at 1,139, with dozens of people still held captive.

UK arms sales to Israel could make it complicit in Gaza war crimes: Oxfam

By continuing to supply arms to Israel during the Gaza war, the UK government is opening itself up to complicity in war crimes, warns the global aid group Oxfam.

Its arms sales, Oxfam says, are also a shift from the UK’s past practices, where it suspended some transfers to Israel after it waged attacks against Palestinians.

“It is illegal, immoral and inconsistent for the UK to continue to sell arms to Israel, when it is clear that UK-made weapons and components are being used in serious violation of international humanitarian law – and after it imposed restrictions in previous escalations of violence when the scale of death and destruction had been lower,” Aleema Shivji, Oxfam’s chief impact officer, said.

“The people of Gaza are facing unprecedented levels of bloodshed, schools and hospitals are being deliberately targeted and starvation is being used as a weapon of war,” Shivji added.

“What more suffering must they endure for the UK government to act?”
