Israeli Genocide in Gaza: Death Toll Exceeds 36,650

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – As Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip continue, the Palestinian death toll in the coastal enclave has reached 36,654 since last Oct. 7, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

At least 83,309 people have also been injured in the onslaught, the ministry added in a statement on Thursday.

“Israeli forces killed 68 people and injured 235 others in six ‘massacres’ against families in the last 24 hours,” the ministry said.

“Many people are still trapped under rubble and on the roads as rescuers are unable to reach them,” it added, Anadolu Agency reported.

Israel has continued its brutal offensive on the Palestinian enclave since Oct. 7, 2023, despite a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire in the enclave.

Eight months into the Israeli war, vast swathes of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water, and medicine.

Israel stands accused of “genocide” at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which in its latest ruling has ordered Tel Aviv to immediately halt its operation in Rafah, where over a million Palestinians had sought refuge from the war before it was invaded on May 6.
