Day 140: 29,514 Martyred, 69,616 Injured in Gaza 

Israeli occupation forces have committed 10 massacres in 24 hours only while continuing their various ground, aerial, and maritime attacks across the Strip.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza announced today that since October 7, the number of Palestinians killed in Gaza rose to 29,514, in addition to 69,616 injuries.

This comes as the Israeli occupation forces committed 10 massacres, killing 104 and injuring 160 others in 24 hours only. 

The Ministry further stressed that thousands of victims remain under the rubble, presumed dead, as the IOF continue to deliberately prevent ambulance and civil defense crews from reaching them. 

On the 140th day since October 7, almost an hour after midnight, it was reported that the IOF raided Deir al-Balah, in the center of the Gaza Strip.

Al Mayadeen’s correspondent reported that photojournalist Muhammad Yaghi “Abu Tishreen” was martyred, along with his daughter and wife, in a massacre committed by Israeli occupation aircraft near Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

“Israel” also renewed its attacks on al-Bureij refugee camp, in the center of the Strip, and targeted a house in al-Zaytoun neighborhood to the south.

In addition, the IOF targeted areas south of Khan Younis with artillery shells while Israeli occupation aircraft opened fire west of Khan Younis.

The IOF further attacked a group of Palestinians near al-Asqalan School east of Khan Younis, Al Mayadeen’s correspondent reported, adding that many were killed and injured in the attack. 

Later, the Ministry of Health in Gaza also confirmed that half a million Palestinians are suffering from famine as it slowly kills them. 

The Ministry also mentioned that 350,000 terminally ill patients, 60,000 pregnant women, and around 700,000 children in Gaza are subjected to dangerous complications due to malnutrition, dehydration, and the absence of medical supplies and services.

It added that the Israeli occupation has Palestinians in Gaza trapped in a “triangle of death” constituting constant and deliberate attacks on them, famine, and diseases, stressing that the continued aggression on Gaza means expanding the Israeli genocide against its people as “Israel” and its allies wish.

Not even hospitals are spared

Meanwhile, Dr. Sara al-Saqqa, of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, part of a rescue mission to evacuate seriously ill patients and families from Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis, revealed that there is no water or electricity inside the complex. She added that there is a scarcity of medical supplies and food for those trapped in the besieged complex.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza also reported that Israeli occupation forces raided the hospital again and are still deliberately blocking movement in and out of the compound.

It added that the complex is drowning in sewage water and staff and patients are left “without water to drink or personal hygiene, without food, without electricity, without oxygen, and medical equipment.”

Animals and trees too

As “Israel” continuously expands its attacks in Gaza, its municipality revealed that the occupation has destroyed its nursery demolishing 100,000 seedlings and 55,000 trees while also deliberately starving animals to death.
