GAZA:  Israeli troops launched more deadly attacks across Gaza on Wednesday, according to sources, which said it targeted a UN agency building.

The Israeli army also confirmed it was reviewing an attack on Tuesday in which hospital sources said around 29 people were killed in a nearby school in the southern Khan Yunis area — the fourth strike on a school building in four days.

Early on Wednesday, around four people were killed and one critically injured in the bombing of a house in the central town of Nuseirat, a hospital source stated. And two people were killed and six wounded in another attack on a home in Bani Suhaila, near Khan Yunis, according to another source.

Israel has stepped up air and ground strikes in Gaza and southern Gaza since issuing evacuation orders for tens of thousands of people in the war-stricken Gaza.

The heightened army strikes come as Israel starts talks in Doha on Wednesday on reaching a truce in the war raging since October 7.

Israel’s military operation has killed more than 38,243 people in Gaza, also mostly civilians including women and children, Gaza health ministry said.
