The conflict in Gaza has claimed the lives of over 28,000 Palestinians since its start, with 117 people killed in Israeli strikes within the past 24 hours. According to the Hamas-controlled health authority, the total number of deaths reported is 28,064 and 67,611 have been injured. While these figures cannot be independently verified, they are generally considered to be accurate by the UN and other observers.
The ongoing violence in the region has resulted in a devastating impact on vulnerable populations. The health authority consistently highlights that women, children, and elderly individuals make up a significant portion of those killed or injured in the conflict. This underscores the urgent need for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in order to prevent further loss of life and alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
The situation continues to escalate as more people are killed or injured daily due to ongoing conflict. The toll continues to rise and it is imperative that international leaders work together towards finding a peaceful solution to this longstanding crisis.
