Palestinian Death Toll In Gaza Tops 34,000

The health ministry in the Gaza Strip, which is run by the Hamas Movement, said on April 19 that at least 34,012 people were killed in the Palestinian enclave during the past six months as a result of the war waged by Israel.

More than 76,833 others have been wounded since the war first broke out after October 7 the Hamas-led surprise attack on Israel, the ministry said in a statement. Most of the casualties are reportedly women and children.

According to the ministry, the toll includes at least 42 deaths over the past 24 hours. During the same period, 63 others were wounded.

In addition to the high number of casualties, the Israeli war, now in its 195th day, has pushed 85% of Gaza’s population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the Strip’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the United Nations.

In recent months, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) withdrew from most of the areas it invaded in the northern and southern parts of Gaza. Nevertheless, it continues to maintain a large presence in the central part, where its troops split the Strip in half.

The IDF has lost 260 soldiers and officers since the start of ground operations in Gaza. The exact number of Israeli troops wounded during these operations remains unknown, but it is reported to be way above 1,560.

Israel is yet to achieve any of the objects it launched the war for. Hamas is still in charge in Gaza, around a hundred Israeli hostages taken during the October 7 attacks are yet to be freed and rockets are still being fired from the Strip every few days.

Despite the heavy human cost and the lack of any achievement, Israel is still determined to go on with its war against Hamas and other Palestinian armed factions in Gaza.

The IDF is reportedly still preparing to launch an operation in the southern Gaza city of Rafah on the border with Egypt, where more than 1,5 million Palestinians have been taking shelters. Israel is facing pressure over the planned operation, including from allies like the United States. However, the pressure may be not enough to cancel the operation.

zase je to sprostosť ako voda v koši. stačí aby usa zastavili pomoc izraelu a ten bude musieť skončiť aj sám túto nezmyselnú vojnu. vyhlásenia, že usa im odporúčalo, aby skončili je málo!!! je to iba taká výhovorka. poznáte to, kde je vôľa je aj cesta.

Charlie Morningstar

zionists have established a world order, not even trump can save palestine at this point.

Dog Sop

trump is no different.. his anti-war stance is total bullshit look at his assinations on iranians and his support of saudi barbaria in yemen. he lied about most of his promises, especially the promise of a real investigation into 9/11. he is a rabid zionist eugencist. hes a sub human globalists that should be exiled to pisrael before it gets nuked.

Allahists are Nazis

oni nestoja pred technickým problémom, ale pred zásadnou dilemou. genocída alebo spolužitie. vyzerá že sa rozhodli pre to prvé. teraz nehovorím o tom čo bolo. to sa nedá označiť ani decimovaním, keďže sa ich viac okotilo ako podľa hamas štatistík zahučalo (od 7.11.)

the khazar abomination in occupied palestine, the snarling depraved zionazi beast, has squandered all its fake hollow co$t credits. it will not survive another decade. but who will want the expelled, colonial detritus when palestine is finally purged of these demon$?

the whole idea behind the israeli genocide of civilians in gaza is to murder as many innocent people as they can with the help of their western lapdogs. mass murder of innocent people and stealing their lands .
