Second body of hostage found

As Israeli ground forces continued operations in northern Gaza, airstrikes bombarded the southern region of the enclave and an army raid in the occupied West Bank saw troops and Palestinian militants exchange heavy gunfire.

Israeli airstrikes hit at least two homes in southern Gaza late Thursday and Friday morning, survivors told the Associated Press. Mohammed Zaqout, the head of Gaza’s hospitals, said a total of 35 people were killed in airstrikes in Khan Younis and the nearby town of Rafah overnight.

In the West Bank, battle erupted between Israeli forces and militants in the town of Jenin. The Israeli military said it killed five militants in the raid and arrested 15 Palestinians. At least three Palestinians were killed in the raid and 15 were injured, Palestinian health officials said.

Palestinians inspect the damage at the site of Israeli bombardment in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip on Nov. 17, 2023, amid ongoing battles between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces in north Gaza seem poised to expand ground operations into the south, a region packed with hundreds of thousands of displaced civilians. On Wednesday, Israel dropped leaflets over Bani Suheila and other nearby areas, calling on residents to flee the area. Similar leaflets were dropped in northern Gaza ahead of Israel’s initial ground invasion.
