Gaza media office: Death toll reaches 12,300
The Palestinian death toll in the Gaza Strip has reached 12,300 people, according to a statement released by the government's media office in Gaza. The dead include more than 5,000 children and 3,300 women. In addition, 30,000 people have been injured.
The Palestinian health ministry, meanwhile, has said that dozens of bodies currently litter the streets of the northern Gaza Strip and that it is impossible to count them because the Israeli army has been targeting ambulances and medical workers trying to approach them.
