Ninth month of war: Israel adds more than 38,000 dead and intensifies attacks on Gaza

As July 7 marks nine months since the start of the war, the Israeli army is escalating its attacks day and night and continuing its strategy of starvation in the Gaza Strip.

More than 38,000 Palestinians were killed in the Strip, with the exception of another 10,000 or more, whose remains are still buried under the rubble of Gaza, more than 70% of which has become a pile of rubble.

At least 55 people have been killed in the past 24 hours, including 16 killed in an attack on the UNRWA Al-Jaouni School in Nuseirat, central Gaza.

An Israeli spokesman justified the attack by the alleged presence of Hamas militants, but the humanitarian organization indicated that at least 2,000 internally displaced people had taken refuge there.

In one of its attacks on Sunday, the occupation forces killed the deputy minister of labor in the enclave, Ihab al-Ghussein, according to media outlets affiliated with the Islamic Group.

For its part, the Ministry of Health in the Strip reported that the total number of injured had risen to 87,828, a number that is becoming more dangerous in the devastated area where most hospitals have stopped working.

Medical centers have stopped working, and the few that are still operating do so only partially and precariously, due to the continuous attacks and shortages of supplies, food, water, fuel and other items necessary for their service and survival, in the face of the total blockade imposed by Israel since last October.

According to the figures published by MaarivAt least 1,592 Israeli soldiers and settlers have been killed since October 7, while more than four thousand have been injured.

Peace talks with Hamas and concessions

Meanwhile, Hamas says it is awaiting Israel’s response to a Gaza ceasefire proposal, five days after it agreed to a key part of the plan, announced by US President Joe Biden in late May, aimed at ending the attacks.

According to reports, Israel is holding talks with officials from Qatar, the country that is mediating the negotiations alongside Egypt and the United States.

Instead, he indicated that he would allow negotiations to achieve such a demand during the first six-week phase, despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence that no draft agreement would rule out continued attacks on Gaza until he achieved his stated goal of “eliminating” Hamas.
