Gaza and West Bank death toll now 2,383 Palestinians – ministry
GAZA — The death toll in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank reached 2,383 Palestinians dead and 10,814 injured on Sunday morning, according to Palestinian health ministry sources.
In Gaza, the death toll climbed to 2,329 Palestinians killed and 9,714 wounded, while in the West Bank, 54 were recorded dead and 1,100 wounded since the conflict between Hamas and Israel started on Oct. 7.
Women in Gaza: ‘We are humans’
Meanwhile, Israel bombed an entire neighborhood belonging to Abu Dakkah family in Kha Younis on Saturday (October 14).
‘We are humans. Where are you Arabs?’ said Palestinian women screaming, after the Israeli airstrike on their neighborhood.
Israeli deadline to flee south of Gaza
“We will not leave; we will stay here, our land, civilization, and sacred places are here. Jerusalem is ours, the land is ours and the olive trees are ours,” said Ibrahim Abu Dakkah, accusing Israel of attempting to displace Palestinians.
More than 1 million Palestinians in northern Gaza faced an Israeli deadline on Saturday to flee south, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel had only just begun to retaliate for last week’s Hamas rampage across southern Israel.
Total siege in Gaza
Israel has since put the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, home to 2.3 million Palestinians, under a total siege and bombarded it with unprecedented air strikes. Gaza authorities say 1,900 people have died.
The Gaza Health Ministry reports that Israeli airstrikes in the past 24 hours have so far resulted in the deaths of 324 Palestinians and the injuries of 1,000 more. Among the dead, there are at least 126 children and 88 women.”
