Gaza: Death toll surges to 28,340 martyrs

Monday 12-February-2024


The health ministry in Gaza said on Monday that the Israeli occupation army committed new massacres in different areas of the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours, killing at least 164 civilians and injuring over 200 others, while a large number of victims are still under the rubble of bombed buildings or lying on roads.

In a statement, the health ministry added that the death toll from the ongoing Israeli bombardments, which started on October 7, climbed to 28,340 martyrs and the number of the wounded surged to 67,984 people.

Every day, the Israeli army escalates its air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip, which has been under relentless bombardment since a cross-border operation was launched by Hamas’s armed wing, al-Qassam Brigades, on October 7.

Besides the large number of casualties and the huge displacement of people, basic food, fuel, water and medical supplies have run out for the 2.3 million residents in Gaza due to the tight Israeli blockade and the massive destruction of infrastructure and facilities.
