Israel ramps up its bombardments across the Gaza Strip, including in the south where rights groups say a humanitarian crisis is worsening.

Norwegian Refugee Council chief Jan Egeland said indiscriminate Israeli bombardment of civilians in southern Gaza has reached new depths.

The Palestine Red Crescent says it lost contact with its operations room and teams amid a telecommunications blackout in the enclave.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has renewed its calls for the protection of Gaza hospitals and civilians.

At least 15,899 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza by Israeli bombing and attacks since October 7.
