Due to the ongoing Israeli genocide against Palestinians, there is an unprecedented rise in the number of martyrs, 70% of whom are women and children, and 2.3 million Palestinians, nearly 90% of the Gaza Strip’s population, have been displaced worsening the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
Yesterday, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip revealed that the IOF committed 16 massacres against families in Gaza, murdering 123 Palestinians and injuring 169 others in 24 hours.
The Ministry emphasized that many martyred and injured Palestinians were still under the rubble and on the roads, as the occupation prevented ambulance and civil defense crews from reaching them.
As of yesterday, the ministry reported the number of Palestinians martyred rose to 27,708 and 67,147 others injured stressing that 11,000 wounded and sick Palestinians are in dire and urgent need of leaving the Strip to save their lives.
