The Ministry of Health in Gaza has released shocking new figures today, revealing that a staggering 30,960 Palestinians have been martyred since October 7, with 72,524 more left injured. The Israeli occupation forces are said to be responsible for 10 massacres in the past day alone, resulting in the deaths of 82 Palestinians and the injury of 122 others. The situation is dire, with many victims trapped under rubble as ambulances and rescue teams are deliberately obstructed from reaching them.

Of particular concern is the high number of women and children among the casualties, making up 72% of all Palestinian victims since October 7. In a chilling statistic, the UN Palestinian Refugee Agency (UNRWA) revealed that 9,000 women have been killed in Gaza so far, with an average of 63 women losing their lives each day. The suffering of Palestinian women in Gaza is a cause for alarm, with many more still missing or trapped in the devastation.

Despite these heartbreaking numbers, the international community has yet to take decisive action to end the violence against the Palestinian people.

The report by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics paints a grim picture of the ongoing aggression, with women and children bearing the brunt of the Israeli genocidal war on Gaza.
