Report from Gaza: "Devastating" Israeli Raid to Free 4 Israeli Hostages Kills 270+ Palestinians


In one of the single bloodiest Israeli attacks in Gaza over the last eight months, at least 274 Palestinians were killed, including at least 64 children, and nearly 700 were wounded in a raid on the Nuseirat refugee camp on Saturday that freed four Israelis held hostage in Gaza since October 7. “Children were shot dead. Elderly people were shot dead. Women were shot dead,” says Gaza-based journalist Akram al-Satarri, who was at the Nuseirat refugee camp on Saturday. Speaking to us from outside the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah — one of the last remaining hospitals that are partially functioning in Gaza — al-Satarri says the death toll is rising by the minute, as wounded Palestinians aren’t able to receive the care they need. Al-Satarri also discusses the World Food Programme’s recent suspension of aid operations in Gaza City and Israel’s withholding of aid on the entire Gaza Strip.
