More Than 6,600 Children Killed by Israeli Forces in Gaza Strip
SAEDNEWS: More than 6,600 Palestinian children in Gaza have been killed by Israeli forces since October 7, the government’s media office said on Sunday.

SAEDNEWS: Thousands more are missing under the rubble from relentless bombardment, it added, Al-Jazeera reported. The Health Ministry in Gaza also said, 15,523 people have died in the Gaza Strip since the start of the war with Israel. Seventy percent of the Palestinians killed in the war are women and children, Ministry Spokesperson Ashraf Al-Qudra said, adding 41,316 people have been wounded.

“During the past hours, only 316 dead and 664 wounded were removed from debris and taken to hospitals, but many others are still under the rubble,” Al-Qudra said.

Israel launched the war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas waged the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in response to the Israeli regime's decades-long campaign of bloodletting and devastation against Palestinians.

Tel Aviv has also imposed a “complete siege” on Gaza, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.

Thousands of buildings, including hospitals, mosques and churches, have been damaged or destroyed in the Israeli offensive (SOURCE: FARSNEWS).
