It said on Tuesday that a total of 33,843 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip since last October.

The ministry made the statement as the Israeli deadly onslaught on Gaza entered its 193rd day.

The ongoing onslaughts have also injured 76,575 Palestinians, it added.

It noted that in the past 24 hours, Israel committed five massacres against families across the Gaza Strip that left 46 fatalities, and 110 wounded who arrived in the hospitals.

“Many people are still trapped under rubble and on the roads and rescuers are unable to reach them,” it added.

The Israeli war on Gaza that began on October 7 has pushed 85% of the territory's population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while over 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.
