Death toll from Israeli aggression on Gaza rises to 4,385

The death toll from the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip soared to 4,385, including 1,756 children and 967 women, as the air strikes continued for the 15th day in a row, according to medical sources. They said Israel committed 29 massacres over the last 24 hours in which 248 people were killed and 400 injured, adding that since the start of the assault on the besieged enclave, 550 massacres occurred leaving 3,353 people dead, 70 percent of whom were children, women and elderly, and many are still under the rubble of collapsed buildings. They said Israeli bombings killed 51 health and medical personnel and injured 87 others, and seven hospitals and medical centers were put out of service as they were targeted and ran out of fuel. The sources said the bed occupancy rate in Gaza hospitals was more than 150 percent, forcing hospitals to set up makeshift tents to accommodate the rising number of wounded and sick. The sources said only a limited number of trucks entered the blockaded enclave today through the Rafah crossing with Egypt, adding that the entry of medical supplies is essential for hospitals and warning against excluding fuel within humanitarian aid which will continue to endanger the lives of the sick and wounded and life-saving services. They appealed to the international community to act immediately to bring in fuel and emergency health needs before more victims are lost in hospitals.
