1 min read

The Palestinian death toll in Gaza from ongoing Israeli attacks has risen to 34,049, the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Saturday.

In a press statement, the ministry said the Israeli army killed 37 Palestinians and wounded 68 others during the past 24 hours, bringing the total death toll to 34,049 and injuries to 76,901, since the Israel-Hamas conflict broke out last October.

The statement noted that some victims remained under the rubble amid heavy bombardment and a lack of rescue crews.

Israel has been launching a large-scale offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip to retaliate against a Hamas rampage through the southern Israeli border on Oct. 7, 2023, during which about 1,200 people were killed and more than 200 were taken hostage.
