ACTNews, GAZA - Towards sunset on Monday (5/10/2021), Israel launched an air strike on the Gaza Strip, killing 22 people. 9 of whom were children, and 106 others were injured.

Based on the report from the Aksi Cepat Tanggap in Gaza, the fatalities were mostly from the Beit Hanoun, Jabalia, Deir Al Balah Mid area, and Nusairat The explosions hit almost all of the Gaza Strip.

This attack continued until midnight. The dark night sky in Gaza turned red after the missiles that flew over the buildings. Several structures were destroyed by the airstrike, leading to thick smoke that billowed above the roofs.

"Israeli attacks continue to this day, and we still hear the sounds of explosions. Random attacks target homes, children, and farmlands. Please pray that Allah will protect Gaza and the Palestinian people from these attacks,” reported ACT Palestine Branch Manager Tahany Ahmed Qasim directly from Gaza.

Tahany explained that all Gazans could not sleep that night because they were afraid of the explosions that occurred everywhere. She continued, this aggression adds to the record of violence committed by Israel. Previously, Israel expelled the Palestinians in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem and attacked worshippers inside Al-Aqsa mosque.

The expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah left 500 people losing their homes while the attack in Al Aqsa left 520 people injured and rushed to the nearest medical center.

Indonesian Medical Clinic in Gaza recorded that over 10 victims of the airstrike were currently struggling to live and were receiving intensive care.

When the airstrike took place, the Gazans were running for their lives. Yet, no place seemed safe for the Palestinians in Gaza because the airstrike indiscriminately hit the Palestinians, including children and residential areas. []
