The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that the Israeli occupation committed 12 massacres, killing 107 Palestinian civilians and injuring 165 others over the past 24 hours. 

The total death toll in Gaza has now risen to 27,238 martyrs and 66,452 injured since October 7. 

Casualties are reportedly still stuck beneath the rubble, as Israeli occupation forces concentrate their aggression while obstructing the path of ambulances and rescue teams, who in turn are unable to reach the victims’ locations.

Gaza’s death toll surpasses all major 21st-century wars

El Pais reported a few days ago that 50% of all martyrs are children, 30% women, and 20% men. This puts Gaza at the forefront of death tolls compared to other drastic wars, such as the Iraqi, Syrian, and Ukranian wars. 

Notably, “Israel” killed 10,000 Palestinians in one month, whereas in Ukraine, the death toll reached this number 19 months into the war. 

As the statistics are revealed, the United Nations reported an estimate indicating that approximately 17,000 children in the Gaza Strip have been left without parental care or separated, a situation persisting nearly four months into the war.

“Each one has a heartbreaking story of loss and grief,” Jonathan Crickx, spokesman for the UN children’s agency UNICEF in the occupied Palestinian territories, told a media briefing in Geneva via video link. “This figure corresponds to one percent of the overall displaced population — 1.7 million people.”

Each one “is a child who is coming to terms with a horrible new reality”.
