For the 39th consecutive day, Israeli occupation’s massive carnage continues to claim more lives in the Gaza Strip as its army persists in bombing homes and buildings and targeting civilians systematically.
According to the Government Media Office (GMO), the Palestinian death toll from Israeli ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip has climbed to 11,240 since Oct. 7.
Out of the total victims, 4,630 were children and 3,130 were women, with more than 29,000 others injured, more than 70 percent of whom are women and children.
The GMO further noted that 1.5 million people were forcibly displaced from their residential areas.
It also pointed out that 198 health personnel, 21 civil defense members, and 51 journalists were killed in the Israeli attacks.
3,250 people are still missing under the rubble, including 1,700 children.
The GMO added that 25 hospitals and 52 health centers have ceased operations in Gaza due to Israeli attacks and a shortage of fuel needed to operate power generators.
Along the same line, 71 mosques were completely destroyed, and 156 mosques were partially damaged, while three churches were targeted.
The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip constitutes a blatant violation of international humanitarian and human rights law as it exposes civilians’ lives to extreme danger, which requires an immediate international intervention.
The international community must force the Israeli occupation forces to abide by international human rights and humanitarian laws, mainly protecting the rights and lives of civilians, prohibiting their targeting and preserving their safety, and holding the Israeli leaders accountable for committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip.
