In the Gaza Strip, the ongoing conflict has resulted in a death toll of over 28,000 Palestinians since its inception, with 117 people being killed within the past 24 hours. This brings the total number of deaths reported to 28,064 and 67,611 injuries, with 152 of those occurring in the last day. Although these figures cannot be independently verified, they are generally accepted as accurate by the UN and other observers.
The Hamas-controlled health authority reports that the casualties do not differentiate between civilians and members of armed groups. However, it highlights the high number of women, children and elderly individuals among those affected by the conflict. This suggests that the violence has had a devastating impact on vulnerable populations in Gaza.
As a result of this tragic situation, there is an urgent need for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in order to prevent further loss of life and alleviate humanitarian crisis in Gaza. The continued escalation of violence only serves to perpetuate suffering and hinder progress towards peace. It is imperative that international community come together to work towards finding a lasting solution to this longstanding issue.
