“The bombs that the occupation used recently had not been used before,” Salama Maarouf, the head of the Gaza’s government’s media office said.
The Israeli forces have dropped 40,000 tons of explosives on the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the Israeli offensive on the besieged territory on October 7, according to Salama Maarouf, the head of the Gaza government’s media office.
In a statement issued on Sunday, November 26, Maarouf said the occupation’s crimes occurred away from the eyes of the cameras, Palestinian media reported.
He explained that “the bombs that the occupation used recently had not been used before, and hundreds of martyrs are buried in the places where they died. The destruction left by the occupation reflects its intent to make Gaza uninhabitable.”
Regarding the temporary ceasefire, Marouf pointed out that “the days of ceasefire revealed the scale of the large massacre, which left major destruction in infrastructure and homes.

He added, “One-third third of the Gaza Strip’s population did not receive basic supplies, all international institutions are absent, and we need to establish a large field hospital.”
Regarding the situation in Al-Shifa Hospital, west of Gaza City, Marouf said, “It lacks all capabilities and has become unusable, and the occupation’s claims about it fool the media.”
He urged the international community to take immediate action in response to the dire situation in Gaza.
