More than 15,000 killed in Gaza since October 7

The Jabalia refugee camp in the north of the Hamas-run enclave was among the sites hit.

A Gazan health ministry spokesperson said several people were killed by an Israeli air strike there.

Footage obtained by Reuters of the aftermath shows children covered in grey dust amid crumbled cement and rubble from collapsed buildings.

These children are crying out in search of their father. One of them says he is dead.

Civilians in the besieged territory have been seeking shelter in an ever-shrinking area of the south.

The renewed warfare comes after a seven-day pause in fighting between Israeli forces and Hamas militants ended on Friday.

Residents say bombardment from war planes and artillery has concentrated on the cities of Khan Younis and Rafah.

They add that hospitals are struggling to cope.

The following graphic images from the the Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis show bloodied casualties, including children, being rushed to the medical complex for treatment.

People could be seen crying next to casualties laid out on the hospital’s floor.

This man says he was outside a school when a rocket hit a house nearby. He brought a young boy to the hospital, but he says he died in his arms.

There was no immediate comment from Israel on the reported actions.

The violence took place despite calls from the United States - Israel's closest ally - for Israel to avoid further harm to Palestinian civilians.

Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry said more than 15,520 have been killed in nearly two months of warfare.

Israel's military response was sparked by a Hamas cross-border raid on southern Israel on October 7 in which 1,200 Israelis were killed and more than 200 taken hostage.

Israel says it is acting to annihilate Hamas, saying it poses a mortal threat to the Jewish state's very existence.

The initial Hamas attack and the ensuing war amount to the bloodiest episode in the decades-old wider Israel-Palestinian conflict.

Where did the refugees at the Jabalia refugee camp come from?

And why haven't Hamas released the Israeli and international hostages yet?

The video footage of these poor little kids, always breaks my heart.

They have no idea what's going on in all of this madness, and they must be so traumatized.

The look of despair on their faces just pains me.

I don’t believe a word coming from hamas.

Of course you wouldn't, Moishe at R4.

Quelle surprise.

It's a start.

How many of the dead are Hamas ‘soldiers’?

Thanks, OP.

We're gratified by your obvious objectivity and knowledge of the issues.

Hamas is at the fafo stage.

Those numbers are made up.

We’ll never hear the actual numbers of killed.

by Anonymousreply 10December 4, 2023 2:33 PM

The interesting statistic to me is that 70% of Palestinians support Hamas.

If that's true, Bibi will either kill them all or bomb them into submission.

He will do this in two week news cycles of indignation and fatigue.

Another made up number. Who do you suppose is conducting polling and keeping track of casualties in the middle of chaos? We are told communications are impossible and people are desperate. Remember, Hamas said Israel killed 500 people at a hospital and it turned out to be a failed Hamas rocket in the parking lot and maybe 20 dead?

Good because they are homophobic muslims.
