On Sunday, an AFP photographer saw civil defense crews digging up human remains in the courtyard as grieving relatives collected bodies wrapped in white.

Resident Umm Mohammed al-Harazeen came to the hospital hoping for news about her husband.

He has been missing since Israeli forces entered Khan Yunis, she said, “and we have searched for him but to no avail.”

Netanyahu said in a video statement on the eve of the Jewish holiday Passover that Israel will “deal additional and painful blows” to Hamas.

“In the coming days we will increase military and political pressure on Hamas because this is the only way to free our hostages,” he said.

Israel estimates that 129 prisoners remain in Gaza after the October 7 Hamas attack, including 34 who the army says are dead.
