The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced on Wednesday evening that the death toll from the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip has risen to 27,708 martyrs in addition to 67,147 wounded since October 7.

The Ministry of Health said in a statement that the Israeli occupation “committed 16 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip, claiming the lives of 123 people and injuring 169 others during the past 24 hours,” stressing that “a number of victims are still under the debris and on the roads, as Israeli troops are preventing ambulance and civil defense crews from reaching them.”

In a related context, the spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf Al-Qudra said, “11,000 wounded and sick people are in dire need to leave the Gaza Strip to receive lifesaving treatment abroad.”

“We have managed to operate parts of the hospitals located in northern Gaza, but we need the arrival of medical and fuel supplies and the return of medical staff from the south to resume their work,” Al-Qudra added.
