Over 12,300, including 5,000 children, killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza

Gaza health ministry said Saturday the death toll due to Israeli  airstrikes on Gaza since October 7 in the Palestinian territory had  reached 12,300 since hostilities started on October 7.

The Hamas  government said more than 5,000 children were among the dead, alongside  3,300 women, with 30,000 more people wounded. Its health ministry has  previously said it can no longer give exact tolls as intense fighting  has prevented bodies from being recovered.
