The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported today that the number of martyred Palestinians in the Strip has reached 27,840, with 67,317 injured since October 7. This comes as a result of the Israeli occupation forces committing 15 massacres against families in Gaza in the past 24 hours, murdering 130 Palestinians and injuring 170 others.
Gaza’s Health Ministry added that many victims remain under the rubble as ambulances and civil defense crews are unable to reach them.

UNRWA: 84% of Gaza’s health facilities impacted by Israeli attacks
The Israeli aggression on Gaza has affected 84% of health facilities in the besieged Gaza Strip, the UN Palestinian Refugee Agency (UNRWA) said on Tuesday.
”Due to continued bombardment and access restrictions, only 4 out of 22 UNRWA health facilities are still operational,” the UN agency added in a statement on X.
UNRWA also shared photos of the damage incurred by the Sheikh Radwan Health Center in Israeli attacks on northern Gaza.
According to the UN, 85% of Gaza’s population has been displaced internally due to Israeli aggression, leading to severe shortages of food, clean water, and medicine. Additionally, 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure has been either damaged or destroyed.
