Numbers can be dehumanizing. Alone, they could hardly convey the reality of the ongoing Israeli genocide in Gaza. The latest official numbers, however, are critical. 

The Government Media Office in Gaza published an update about the scale of destruction by the Israeli army in the besieged Gaza Strip, starting on October 7.

The count is not final, due to the fact that over 7,000 Palestinians remain missing, and are presumed dead – either under the rubble of their homes, or scattered in the streets in areas that civil defense workers cannot reach. 

The numbers, stats and estimates below cover the period between October 7, 2023, and February 11, 2024.
