Death toll in Gaza rises to 21,507

The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza said Friday at least 21,507 people have been killed in the Palestinian territory since war with Israel broke out nearly 12 weeks ago, reported from Al Arabiya.

The figure includes 187 fatalities over the past 24 hours, a ministry statement said. It added that 55,915 people have been wounded in Gaza during the fighting.

Since the fighting erupted on October 7, triggered by deadly attacks on Israel, more than 80 percent of Gaza’s 2.4 million people have been driven from their homes, according to the United Nations.

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, said 308 people seeking shelter in their facilities have been killed during the war.

A total of 1,095 people have been wounded while taking refuge at UN sites, UNRWA said on social media platform X.
