Death toll risen to 7,326+ including more than 3,000 children. UN confirms the accuracy of Hamas’ numbers
The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf Al-Qudra, announced today (Friday) that the death toll from Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has risen to 7,326 since October 7, according to what was published by the Arab World News Agency.
Al-Qudra said, in a press conference, that more than 3,000 children are among the victims of the attacks launched by Israel on Gaza since the attack carried out by Palestinian factions on towns in southern Israel.
He stressed that there is no objection to any neutral party from reaching Gaza and finding out the facts about the victims of Israeli attacks. He added: “Our doors are open to all relevant institutions to view our work and statistics.”
The United Nations confirmed on Friday that the death tolls issued by the Hamas Ministry of Health were correct, after Washington cast doubt on the outcome of the current war.
The Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, told reporters in Jerusalem: “In the past, and over the five or six rounds of conflict in the Gaza Strip, these numbers were considered credible and no one had ever questioned them.”
He confirmed the killing of 57 UNRWA employees since the start of the conflict, according to Agence France-Presse.
