Day 262: 37,626 Martyred, 86,098 Injured in Gaza

Gaza's Health Ministry stated that the Israeli occupation forces killed 47 people and injured 121 others in the past 24 hours.

The number of Palestinians killed since the start of the Israeli aggression on Gaza on October 7 has risen to 37,626 and the number of injured to 86,032, the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip confirmed on Monday.


In its daily report, the Health Ministry stated that the Israeli occupation forces killed 47 people and injured 121 others in the past 24 hours. 


It is noteworthy that thousands of victims remain under the rubble and on the roads, as ambulance and civil defense crews are unable to reach them on account of them being repeatedly targeted by the IOF, or due to the destruction of vehicles and tools used to clear the rubble.


The Israeli occupation persisted in its aggression against the Gaza Strip for the 262nd consecutive day, perpetrating additional massacres against families and civilians, resulting in more casualties and injuries.

Israeli warplanes carried out a fierce airstrike on al-Zaytoun neighborhood east of Gaza City on Sunday night – Monday morning. Additionally, Israeli aircraft fired bullets around al-Nabulsi Square and Sheikh Ajleen area west of Gaza City.


Concurrently, Israeli warplanes also indiscriminately fired towards civilians in various areas of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.


In Rafah, Israeli forces demolished residential buildings in the Saudi neighborhood, west of the city.


Palestinian Resistance continues confrontations 

On a related note, earlier today, Palestinian Resistance fighters carried on their confrontation with Israeli occupation forces on multiple fronts in the Gaza Strip, as fighting concentrated in the southern areas of Rafah on Sunday. 


Al-Qassam’s Military Media Unit said that the fighters fired an ATGM at an Israeli armored vehicle, Ofek, in Tal Za’arab in the southern part of Rafah. The statement added that the vehicle caught fire after being hit by the missile.


For the first time since the invasion of Rafah was launched in early May, Hamas’ military wing, al-Qassam Brigades, announced that its fighters fired an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) at an Israeli target. The announcement marks a rare incident in the Gaza Strip, which has seen little use of ATGMs against Israeli targets.
