Gaza: Death toll surges to 36,050 martyrs

Monday 27-May-2024


The health ministry in Gaza said on Monday that the Israeli occupation army committed seven massacres in different areas of the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours, killing at least 66 civilians and injuring over 383 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 said that the Israeli army killed and injured a large number of civilians in different areas of Gaza during the past 24 hours, but at least 449 of them, including 66 martyrs, were transported to hospitals.

The health ministry added that the death toll from the ongoing Israeli bombardments and shooting attacks, which started on October 7, climbed to 36,050 martyrs and the number of the wounded surged to 81,026 people.

The death toll from the Israeli massacre in Rafah last night has climbed to 45 civilians, including 23 women, children and elderlies. 249 others were also injured in the Israeli attack.

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.
