UN: Israeli forces carried out 10,000 air strikes since 7 October

The UN Human Rights Office in the Occupied Palestinian Territories reported on Wednesday that Israeli forces have claimed to have carried out at least 10,000 air strikes since the start of the hostilities on 7 October.

According to Al Jazeera, the office said that the air strikes on residential and other civilian infrastructure “raises serious concerns about Israel’s compliance with international humanitarian law and significantly raises the risk of atrocity crimes.”

Around 1.9 million Palestinians in Gaza have now been displaced from their homes since the start of the war according to the United Nations.
