The military denies reports that it carried out a strike in the designated “humanitarian zone” in the southern Gaza Strip, killing civilians.

Hamas authorities had claimed that at least 21 people have been killed in the strike at a displacement camp, west of Rafah.

“Contrary to the reports from the last few hours, the IDF did not strike in the Humanitarian Area in al-Mawasi,” the IDF says in a statement.
