People have been burnt alive as Israel attacked a centre for displaced people in Rafah on Monday.

At least 45 Palestinians, including at least 23 women, children and elderly people, were killed in an Israeli attack on a camp for those displaced from the southern city of Rafah, the Gaza health ministry said in a statement on Monday.

According to the ministry, the overall toll of confirmed dead from Israel’s military offensive has risen to at least 36,050, with 81,026 wounded.

It added that thousands of other dead have not been recovered from the rubble during the campaign since October 7.

According to an Al Jazeera report, the tent camp Israeli forces attacked was housing displaced citizens in a designated safe zone in Rafah.

Many people were burnt alive in the bombing, it added.

The local media in Gaza earlier said the strike hit a centre run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees near Rafah, branding it a “horrific massacre”.

The Palestinian officials said assaults in the Tal as-Sultan neighbourhood, Jabalia, Nuseirat and Gaza City killed at least 160 citizens in the past 24 hours.

Following the strikes, images from the camp quickly spread on social media, prompting international condemnation.
