Al-Huda Mosque in Rafah partially destroyed after massive Israeli airstrike

The Al-Huda Mosque, located in the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, was partially destroyed as a result of massive airstrikes carried out by the Israeli armed forces. There were refugees in the mosque at the time of the attack, killing at least 11 people and injuring several others. The victims were taken to local medical facilities. According to Al Jazeera TV channel, the total number of victims of Israeli airstrikes on the city exceeded 50 people, including children.

The event was part of the escalating conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu previously announced preparations for a military operation in Rafah, clarifying that Hamas combat units were stationed in the city. According to the Israeli army, four battalions of this movement are located in Rafah.

Tensions in the region are increasing amid Egypt's warning that the Camp David Accords could be suspended if Israeli troops enter Rafah. Cairo has expressed concerns about a potential influx of Palestinian refugees triggered by the fighting, as well as a possible cutoff in humanitarian aid supplies to the Gaza Strip through Rafah.
