Morning update

Good morning Middle East Eye, 

It is now just after 11:30am in Gaza. Here are the key developments from the past few hours of Israel's relentless assault on the besieged enclave: 

  • Amid mounting international warnings against a planned Israeli offensive in Rafah, fighter jets have been intensifying their air strikes on the border town. 

  • Israeli attacks in Rafah killed at least 58 Palestinians on Sunday morning, the health ministry said. 

  • At least three patients died in the al-Amal hospital in Khan Younis due to Israeli blockade preventing the entry of oxygen, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.

  • Palestinians in northern Gaza can't even find animal food to eat as the humanitarian situation is "beyond the catastrophic", officials have warned.
