Highlights 
  •  Up to 60 Palestinians, including 17 children and 14 women, are reported to have been killed in the past 24 hours in the Ash Shuja’iyeh area in eastern Gaza City, raising concern about respect for the principle of distinction and proportionality under international humanitarian law.

  • 16 Israeli soldiers have been killed in the past 24 hours, including 13 in Ash Shuja’iyeh.
