Gaza: Death toll surges to 33,634 martyrs

Friday 12-April-2024


The health ministry in Gaza said on Friday that 89 martyrs and 120 wounded civilians were transported to hospitals during the past 24 hours, 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 and shooting attacks, which started on October 7, climbed to 33,634 martyrs and the number of wounded surged to 76,214 people.

The Gaza Strip has been under brutal 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.
