    According to the Gaza-based Health Ministry, the number of Palestinians killed in Israeli airstrikes in Gaza has grown to 2,750.

    The number of injured has grown to 9,700, according to the ministry.

    The government had stated that around 750 children were among those killed in the Israeli attacks.

    According to health officials, there have been 58 deaths and at least 1,250 injuries throughout the West Bank.

    In a major escalation of Middle Eastern tensions, Israeli forces launched a prolonged military offensive against the Gaza Strip on Oct. 7, in response to a military offensive by the Palestinian group Hamas in Israeli territory.

    The battle started when Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against Israel, a multi-pronged surprise offensive that included rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel via land, sea, and air.

    According to Hamas, the operation was carried out in retribution for the takeover of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, as well as Israeli settlers’ increasing aggression towards Palestinians.

    Following that, the Israeli military started Operation Swords of Iron against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

    Israel’s response has included cutting off water and electricity supplies to Gaza, aggravating living conditions in a place that has been under blockade since 2007, as well as ordering more than one million Gazans to flee to the southern region.
