    At least 22 people have been killed, including women and children, in overnight attacks by Israeli forces on homes located in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis and Rafah cities.

    Three children were among 10 people killed when two homes were destroyed in Israeli attacks on a neighbourhood in the east of Khan Younis. A separate attack on the home of the Abu Khater family in Khan Younis left two people dead and many wounded, Wafa reports.

    In Rafah city, an attack on the Abu Ubaid family home in the Saudi neighbourhood and the Oreiba area, to the north of the city, also resulted in casualties but the number of dead and injured was not yet known.

    Earlier in the night, two Israeli attacks on homes in the Bureij and Nuseirat refugee camps in central Gaza killed 10 people, Wafa also reported.

    A ruined school destroyed by Israeli bombs is the best shelter Palestinians can find in Jabalia in northern Gaza after Israeli forces withdrew from the refugee camp following a weeks-long ground attack.

    Hamdi Abu Tabak, a displaced person taking part in efforts to clear rubble from a school, said he has returned and will stay in Jabalia despite the Israeli attacks and destruction.

    “We were staying in UNRWA schools that were supposed to be safe places but the Israelis bombed us. Some people were killed and injured,” Abu Tabak told media.

    “When we returned, we found everything destroyed. But I live in Jabalia and I will die here,” he said.

    Israel's military offensive in the Gaza Strip has killed at least 36,439 Palestinians and wounded 82,627 since October 7, the Palestinian enclave's health ministry said on Sunday.

    There have been 60 Palestinians killed and 220 injured in the past 24 hours, the ministry statement added.
