Gaza death toll hits 13,000 in Israeli-Hamas conflict since October 7
5,500 children and 3,500 women among the deceased, 30,000 individuals injured
Documenting human cost challenges due to relentless fighting
On Sunday, officials from Gaza’s Hamas government disclosed that the death toll resulting from the ongoing conflict between Israeli troops and Hamas militants in the Palestinian territory had surged to 13,000 since hostilities commenced on October 7.
This distressing figure includes a devastating toll on the most vulnerable, with more than 5,500 children and 3,500 women among the deceased.
Additionally, a staggering 30,000 individuals have suffered injuries during the course of the conflict.
The challenges in accurately documenting the extent of the human cost have been exacerbated by the relentless intensity of the fighting.
Gaza’s health ministry, grappling with the chaos of the situation, has acknowledged the difficulty in providing precise figures.
The recovery of bodies, a crucial aspect of tallying the casualties, has been significantly impeded by the ongoing hostilities.
This harrowing update underscores the profound humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza, where the scale of loss, particularly among children and women, paints a grim picture of the impact of the conflict on the civilian population.
The escalation of violence has not only claimed thousands of lives but has also left tens of thousands injured, further straining the already fragile healthcare infrastructure in the region.
