Death toll rises to over 30,700 in Israel’s offensive on Gaza, say authorities

On Wednesday, the authorities in Gaza reported that more than 30,700 Palestinians have died due to Israel’s offensive against the enclave. The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) controls the Gaza Strip and made the announcement. The Gaza Ministry of Health stated that there were 30,717 fatalities and 72,156 injuries since October 7th when the attacks carried out by an Islamist group led to Israel launching its offensive.

The Ministry also highlighted that there are still an unknown number of victims under rubble or lying on roads due to the occupation preventing ambulances and Civil Defense teams from reaching them. This could potentially result in a higher death toll. Additionally, the Ministry condemned the deliberate killing of 348 health workers by Israeli occupation forces and the arrest of 269 others, including hospital directors. These actions have contributed to a collapse of the health system in Gaza and exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the region.

Israel initiated its offensive against Gaza following Hamas’ attacks, which resulted in 1,200 deaths and 240 kidnappings. The death toll includes over 400 Palestinians killed by Israeli security forces in West Bank and East Jerusalem as well as attacks carried out by settlers. The ongoing violence and casualties have caused widespread devastation and loss throughout the region.

The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has been ongoing for decades with no end in sight yet. Despite international condemnation, Israel continues to carry out military operations against Palestinian territories citing security concerns while Palestinians see it as a violation of their rights.

As tensions rise between both sides, innocent civilians continue to suffer from this ongoing violence leaving a deep impact on both parties involved.
