Notably, Israel struck 300 targets during its fourth night of land operations in northern Gaza.

AFP reported that dozens of onlookers could be seen standing on the edges of two vast craters as people searched for survivors, and that its video footage from the scene showed at least 50 bodies recovered.

Jabalia resident Ragheb Aqal a described the bombardment to AFP as “an earthquake" which shook the entire refugee camp.

“I went and saw the destruction … homes buried under the rubble and body parts and martyrs and wounded in huge numbers," the 41-year-old told AFP.

“There’s no exaggerating when they talk about hundreds of martyrs and wounded.

People were still “transporting the remains of children, women and elderly", he added.

The humanitarian toll in Palestine's Gaza, aused by relentless iSraeli bombardment, has sparked a global backlash, with aid groups and the United Nations warning time is running out for many of the territory's 2.4 million people denied access to food, water, fuel and medicine.
