The ministry also said that the number of wounded has risen to 8,714, including 2,450 children and 1,536 women.

This Online News Medium gathered that atleast 2,670 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since October 7, the health ministry says, adding that the victims of Israeli relentless bombardment are more than 724 Palestinian children.

In a dramatic escalation of Middle East tensions, a week ago Israeli forces launched a sustained and forceful military campaign against the Gaza Strip, a response to a military offensive by the Palestinian group Hamas in Israeli territories.

An estimated one million Gazans have also been displaced in the first seven days of conflict with Israel, according to the United Nations agency supporting Palestinian refugees, as aid groups said the situation in the besieged enclave is “catastrophic”.
