The calls for increased aid to Gaza have intensified as reports from health officials reveal a total of 20 people have now succumbed to malnutrition and dehydration. Here is the latest update for Thursday, March 7, 2024:

– On Thursday, a tragic Israeli bombing of a mosque in Jabalia al-Balad, northern Gaza resulted in the death of at least five people.
– Tragically, a 15-year-old and a 72-year-old man in northern Gaza have also passed away due to malnutrition and dehydration, as confirmed by Gaza’s Health Ministry.
– Despite Israel’s evacuation orders in October, up to 300,000 Palestinians remain in northern Gaza, with many resorting to eating animal fodder for sustenance.
– Shockingly, one in six children under the age of two in the north is suffering from acute malnutrition, according to the United Nations.

Amidst regional tensions and ongoing diplomatic efforts:

– China’s Foreign Minister condemned Israel’s actions in Gaza, labeling it a “tragedy for humanity” and called for an immediate ceasefire.

– The US State Department remains optimistic about reaching a truce deal between Israel and Hamas before Ramadan.
– In Canada’s Quebec province, a temporary ban on pro-Palestinian protests near Jewish community buildings has been imposed.

Additionally, violence in the occupied West Bank continues:

– Israeli forces conducted raids in Tubas and Tammun, resulting in the arrest of nine individuals.
– Plans for 3,500 new illegal settlement housing units in the occupied West Bank have been pushed forward by Israeli authorities, despite international laws considering them illegal.
