Gaza Death Toll Surpasses 35,000 As Israel Expands Military Operations (Videos)

Illustrative image.

The Palestinian death toll from the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip has surged since last October to 35,034 people, the health ministry in the besieged enclave said on May 12.

At least 78,755 other people have been injured in the war, the ministry, which is run by the Hamas Movement, added in a statement.

“Israeli attacks killed 63 people and injured 114 others in the last 24 hours,” the statement said. “Many people are still trapped under rubble and on the roads as rescuers are unable to reach them.”

The announcement came as the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched a ground operation in the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza.

Hamas’ military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, said in separate posts on its Telegram channel that there had been “fierce fighting” to the east of Jabaliya, near Gaza City. Two videos released by the group showed an attack with an armed quadcopter on an Israeli main battle tank in Jabaliya and a mortar attack on IDF gatherings in the nearby al-Zaytoun neighborhood.

Israeli troops advanced in Jabalia after heavy Israeli bombardment. The IDF said it hit 30 Hamas targets overnight, killing several fighters.

It’s worth noting that the IDF called on the civilian population to evacuate the camp in a post on Telegram and other social networks a day earlier. It claimed that Hamas attempted to “reassemble its terrorist infrastructure and operatives in the area.”

Meanwhile in southern Gaza, the IDF said on May 12 that dozens of fighters had been killed in the area of Rafah where more than 1,4 million Palestinians, many displaced from elsewhere, had been seeking shelter.

Despite expanding operations in Gaza, Israel is still facing fire from the Strip. On May 12, two rocket attacks targeted the city of Ashkelon and two others hit Sderot settlement and the area of Kerem Shalom. The first attack on Ashkelon wounded three people.

Israel has so far lost 271 troops in ground operations in Gaza and failed to achieve any of its objectives. Hamas continues to rule the Strip, around 100 Israelis captured during the October 7 surprise attacks are still in the hands of the group and rockets are being launched from the enclave on a regular basis.

nato”s “rules based order” is about arming and protecting zionist scum, killing unarmed women and their children.this is never to be forgiven and the first warhead that get’s available for hamas will obliterate tel-aviv from human history. it will have no skipping ovens this time, cause the oven will come knocking on every of their doors.

is that you madelaine? you must be so proud. first it was the 500,000 dead kiddies in iraq, and now it is the babies and their mothers, with semitic dna, the real semitics, being taken out by the fakes with zero semitic dna. those that were given new territory, back in 1947 and have done nothing but demand the genocide and ethnic cleansing of their hosts. the same people with plans to take over ukraine and move in.

you mean the women, breast feeding/bottle feeding their children? madelaine albright, must be so proud. what was it she said about the dead kiddies of iraq? funny, how those without semitic dna, posing as a certain faith happen to be taking out those with semetic dna, whilst claiming anti-semitic abuse, to anybody who complains.

israel is actually doing the terrorists a favor by granting them the death of the jihadist. western hamas supporting gender and climate freaks can show their support by burning themselves on tiktok for ghumas and hezbubaal.

the majority of people on the planet celebrate the ongoing destruction of the zionazi abomination nested like a viper in occupied palestine. their hollow co$t juice is all used up and after nut’nyahoo is finally whacked the current freeloading squatters will be the last generation to pollute palestine.
