Palestinian death toll in Gaza rises to 27,365: ministry

Gaza: The Palestinian death toll from the ongoing Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip has risen to 27,365, while 66,630 others were wounded, the Hamas-run Health Ministry said Sunday.

During the past 24 hours, the Israeli army killed 127 Palestinians and wounded 178 others in Gaza, the ministry spokesperson Ashraf Al-Qedra said in a press statement.

According to Palestinian security sources, Israel’s air and artillery strikes continued in most parts of the strip, with its aircraft targeting dozens of homes in Khan Younis and a vehicle in Rafah in the south of the enclave.

Eyewitnesses said clashes between the Palestinian armed factions and the Israeli forces continued, especially in Gaza City and areas of northern Gaza.

Since Oct. 7, 2023, Israel has been launching a large-scale military campaign against Hamas in Gaza to retaliate against a surprise Hamas attack on southern Israel, which claimed the lives of about 1,200 Israelis, according to the Israeli authorities.
