Hamas would not have even imagined that attacking Israel on October 7 would prove so costly. The Israeli army has rained so many bombs and missiles on Gaza that skyscrapers and beautiful cities from north to south have turned into crematoriums. Now only the remains of the ruins of buildings are left here. Due to the havoc of the Israeli army, there has been such a spate of deaths in Gaza, hearing about which will shudder the soul. According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, more than 20 thousand Palestinians have been killed so far in Gaza due to Israeli attacks.
The war between Israel and Hamas has killed more than 20,000 people in the Gaza Strip, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. Hamas militants led the attack on Israel on October 7, killing more than 1,200 people, according to Israeli officials. The Israeli army responded to this with an all-out bombardment and ground attack on Gaza. This has killed at least 1 in 100 people in Gaza City. The Gaza Health Ministry said early Friday that 20,057 Palestinians had been killed in Israeli strikes since October 7.
Deaths in Gaza break 75 years record
According to the Gaza Health Ministry, the death toll of 20,057 Palestinians is the highest death toll ever recorded. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, the figure exceeds the estimated 15,000 Palestinians killed in violence that followed the 1948 Arab–Israeli war. Palestinians call that mass displacement the Nakba, or “catastrophe.” Leader C. Crawford, who tracks war numbers and co-director of the Cost of War Project at Brown University, said the rate of deaths among the population was similar to that of 20th century wars. “This is a significant and unusual level of destruction in the 21st century,” he said. News outlets and the United Nations have also relied on the Gaza Health Ministry for death tolls. Israeli and American officials have publicly questioned the figures.
