Forty-five Palestinians have been martyred and over one hundred and sixty injured in an Israeli airstrike at a camp for displaced people in the southern city of Rafah.

The strike came two days after the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to halt its operations so as to save civilians.  

The area, in Rafah’s northwest, was overcrowded with tents from people fleeing the assault on the city.

Footage on social media show fire spreading across tents as people pull out the dead and injured.

Nearly a million Palestinians have fled Rafah to parts of Gaza that are at least partly destroyed, many without proper sanitation or water supplies.
