‘Horrific Attack: Palestinians Targeted by Drone Fire while Fleeing Shujayea’

In the midst of the ongoing conflict in Gaza, Palestinians in the neighborhood of Shujayea are facing unimaginable horrors as they attempt to flee the relentless attacks. Israeli quadcopters and drones are targeting those trying to escape, trapping many within the war-torn area. Despite the efforts of some residents to evacuate, a significant number remain stranded, with 65,000 Palestinians having already fled the violence according to the UNRWA.

Yesterday, residents were forced to navigate through Salah al-Din Street, as airstrikes and artillery shelling continued unabated, putting their lives at great risk.
