Palestinian death toll nears 22,000

Israeli forces have killed at least 156 Palestinians in air strikes across the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours, the health ministry said on Monday. 

This brings the death toll since 7 October to at least 21,978 with 57,697 wounded and 7,000 missing who are believed to be dead and buried under rubble. 

Overall, around four percent of Gaza's population have been killed, wounded or gone missing in less than three months of bombardment. 

The majority of victims are children and women, according to health officials.
