The Gaza Ministry of Health has reported the death of over 350 Palestinians in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of casualties to 17,177 since the beginning of the Israeli Occupation aggression on the Gaza Strip in October.

The ongoing aggression has resulted in over 46,000 injuries and is now entering its third month, marked by intense confrontations between Hamas and Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF).

The confrontations erupted following provocations by IOF in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Hamas responded to the Israeli Occupation's aggression against Palestinian over the past 75 years with Operation Aqsa Typhoon on Oct. 7.

In retaliation, the IOF launched a military operation against Gaza, named Operation Iron Swords, conducting a series of severe airstrikes in various areas of the Strip.

The IOF claims approximately 1,200 Israeli Occupation settlers and soldiers have been killed, while acknowledging the death of 414 officers and soldiers since Oct. 7.
