Palestinian death toll in Gaza rises to 31,184: Ministry

Gaza, Mar 13 (UNI) The Palestinian death toll due to the ongoing Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has climbed to 31,184, reported the Gaza-based Palestinian Health Ministry on Tuesday.

Within the past 24 hours, the Israeli army killed 72 Palestinians and injured 129 others, pushing the total death toll to 31,184 and injuries to 72,889 since the start of the Israel-Hamas conflict on Oct. 7, 2023, the ministry said in a statement.

Medical sources and eyewitnesses reported that nine were killed and some others wounded after Israeli troops opened fire at a gathering of Palestinians waiting for aid at the Kuwaiti roundabout in southern Gaza City.

There was no comment from the Israeli army on the incident.

Israel has been launching a large-scale offensive against Hamas in Gaza to retaliate against a Hamas rampage through the southern Israeli border on Oct. 7, 2023, during which about 1,200 people were killed and more than 200 were taken hostage.
