Gaza death toll surges past 27,000

The Palestinian death toll from Israel's ongoing offensive against the besieged Gaza Strip jumped to 27,019, the Health Ministry in the enclave announced on Thursday.

The Gaza-based Health Ministry made the statement as the Israeli deadly onslaught against the Palestinian territory enters its 118th day.

It also said 66,139 other people have been injured in the ongoing aggression.

The statement added that in the past 24 hours, the Israeli army committed 15 massacres across the Gaza Strip which left 118 people killed and 190 others injured.

“Many people are still trapped under rubble and on the roads and rescuers can’t reach them,” the statement read.

Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since a cross-border attack by Palestinian group Hamas in October, in which nearly 1,200 Israelis are believed to have been killed.

About 85% of Gazans have been displaced by the Israeli onslaught, while all of them are food insecure, according to the UN. Hundreds of thousands of people are living without shelter, and ⁠less than half of aid trucks are entering the territory than before the start of the conflict.
