Gaza: More than 112,000 dead and wounded after 208 days of aggression

Ramallah, May 1 (Prensa Latina) The number of deaths in the Gaza Strip as a result of Israel's aggression increased to 34,568 and the number of wounded rose to 77,765, medical sources reported on Wednesday.

Health authorities in the territory noted in their latest report on the subject that most of the victims are women and children.

They indicated that in the last 24 hours, Israeli troops committed four massacres that resulted in 33 dead and 57 injured.

The death toll does not include more than 10,000 Palestinians who are still buried under rubble in the Gaza Strip after nearly seven months of attacks, according to data from rescue and ambulance teams.

The accumulation of thousands of corpses led to the spread of diseases and epidemics, especially in recent weeks, due to high temperatures, which accelerate the decomposition of the bodies, officials stated.

The Palestinian Ministry of State for Relief Affairs warned this week that the Israeli military destroyed or damaged 60 percent of residential buildings and 80 percent of commercial facilities in the coastal enclave.

On Wednesday, the official Wafa news agency reported that Israel’s Armed Forces had bombed the cities of Gaza, Rafah, Deir al-Balah and the Nuseirat refugee camp in the last few hours.
