In the past 108 days, Israeli army attacks have killed 11,000 children and 7,500 women in the Gaza Strip, according to the media office of the government in Gaza. 

According to a report by the Anadolu news agency, the media office said in a statement on Monday, that 7,000 people, 70% of whom are women and children, are still under debris or missing, due to Israel’s attack on the enclave.

The office cited a host of new figures to try to convey the depth of loss and destruction suffered by Palestinians in Gaza, the report added. 

“The number of bodies reaching hospitals has surpassed 25,900, while 63,000 people have been injured since October 7,” it continued. 

Some 70,000 houses have been completely destroyed in Israeli attacks, and 290,000 houses were made uninhabitable.

On Israeli attacks on the healthcare sector, the statement said 337 healthcare workers and 45 civilian defense officials have so far been killed, reported Anadolu.

A total of 119 journalists have been killed in Israeli attacks in Gaza, since October 7.   

Earlier this month, the office of the ICC’s Chief Prosecutor, Karim Khan, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders (RSF) that “crimes against journalists” are included in its ongoing investigation into the situation in Palestine.

Scores Detained and Displaced 

Israel forces detained 99 healthcare workers and 10 journalists, and 2 million people were displaced in the Gaza Strip, the Anadolu report said.

The media office also highlighted the inhumane conditions in crowded shelters where displaced Palestinians seek refuge. 

“The statement said 400,000 cases of infectious diseases and more than 8,000 cases of Hepatitis A have been detected as a result of Israel’s forced displacement,” reported Anadolu.
