The Gaza government media office reports that over 13,300 people have lost their lives since October 7, with 5,600 children and 3,550 women among the casualties.

Over 31,000 injuries have been documented, with 75 percent involving children and women.

Medical personnel have suffered significant losses, with 201 doctors, nurses, and paramedics, along with 22 civil defense personnel and 60 journalists martyred.

The Hebrew Broadcasting Corporation notes 1,538 soldiers and settlers killed and around 5,000 others injured.

The Israeli occupation's ongoing aggression has caused a humanitarian crisis due to a complete siege, lack of basic necessities, and fuel restrictions, leading to a surge in sick fatalities.

The Al-Qassam Brigades responded with Operation Aqsa Typhoon on October 7, while the Israeli Occupation initiated "Iron Sword," resulting in numerous casualties, extensive damage to buildings, and infrastructure destruction in the Gaza Strip.
