Israeli offensive leaves 9,500 dead; more than 3,900 are children
At least 9,488 people have died in the Gaza Strip, including some 3 thousand 900 childrenas a consequence of the offensive launched by Israeli forces in response to the Hamas attacks on October 7, according to a new report released this Saturday by the Gaza Ministry of Health.
The Ministry, controlled by Hamas, also has registered more than 24,100 wounded, although it assumes that these are provisional figures, to the extent that there are still 2,000 people missing. In addition, the attacks persist, after the death toll has added more than 230 new names in the last 24 hours.
We recommend: 'Give me back my legs!': the cry of children amputated in the Gaza war.
"70 percent of the victims of Israeli aggression are children, women and the elderly," denounced the Ministry of Health, which focuses on incidents such as the "massacre" perpetrated this Saturday at a school in the Jabalia refugee camp and which has left at least 15 dead.
The authorities linked to Hamas have also accused Israeli forces of deliberately attacking more than a hundred medical centers. and preventing the operation of 16 hospitals due to the damage inflicted and the lack of basic supplies. In this sense, they have pointed out that there are people dying in hospitals due to lack of resources.
We recommend: There are 3,826 children killed in Palestine due to Israeli attacks; another 1,200 are under the rubble.
Faced with these actions, including a bombing on Friday on an ambulance convoy, the Gazan government believes that "the international community faces a real test to stop Israeli rampage." He has called for the urgent shipment of supplies and a constant flow of aid to the Strip.
On the Israeli side, the Government estimates that more than 1,400 people lost their lives in the attacks carried out by Hamas militants on October 7. Besides, More than 240 hostages remain held in the Gaza Strip.
