Death toll in Gaza Strip exceeds to 33,000 since tensions escalated — Health Ministry

CAIRO, April 4. /TASS/. The death toll in the Gaza Strip since the start of the Israeli military operation has exceeded to 33,000, more than 75,000 people having been injured, the Palestinian enclave’s Health Ministry said. “The number of victims as a result of Israeli aggression in Gaza since last October has increased to 33,037, with 75,668 people injured,” the ministry said in a statement on its Telegram channel. The Gaza Health Ministry also noted that “in the past 24 hours alone, 62 people have died in the enclave and 91 others have been injured.” Some of the deceased are buried under rubble, and medical personnel are unable to reach them at this time. The situation in the Middle East escalated sharply on October 7, 2023, after militants from the Palestinian radical movement Hamas breached into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip, resulting in the killing of residents of border towns and the capture of over 240 hostages. The radicals described its attack as a response to the aggressive actions of Israeli authorities against the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Israel announced a total blockade of Gaza and started carrying out airstrikes on the Palestinian enclave, as well as on certain areas in Lebanon and Syria, followed by a ground operation in the enclave. Clashes are also taking place in the West Bank of the Jordan River.
