Gaza doctors save baby from womb after mother dies

Innocent lives lost as Israeli strikes devastate Rafah


In Rafah, Palestinians are grappling with the aftermath of a relentless series of Israeli airstrikes that have left 22 people dead, with 18 of them being children.

According to a report on Sky News, the airstrikes, described as horrific even by Gaza's standards, have raised concerns about the potential for further devastation in the event of an Israeli offensive in Rafah.

Amid the chaos, a glimmer of hope emerged as doctors in Gaza managed to save the life of an unborn baby, despite her mother succumbing to head injuries. The baby, now in an incubator, bears the label "The baby of the martyr Sabreen al Sakani," a poignant reminder of the family's tragic loss.

Heartbreak reverberated through Rafah as another airstrike claimed the lives of 17 children and two women from the same extended family. Relatives mourned the young victims, questioning the senselessness of the violence that targeted sleeping children and elderly family members.

The airstrikes have drawn sharp condemnation from the UK government, with Foreign Minister Lord Ahmad expressing appall over the civilian casualties in Rafah. Despite calls for an immediate end to the fighting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted at further escalation, citing biblical references to justify continued military action against Hamas.

As the conflict persists, concerns mount over the disproportionate toll on civilians in Rafah, the most densely populated area of Gaza. With no end in sight, the prospect of more casualties looms large as tensions escalate between Israel and Hamas.
