Hamas health ministry in Gaza says more than 22,000 killed since start of war

The Hamas-run health ministry in the Gaza Strip says that more than 22,000 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed since the start of Israel’s war with Hamas, triggered by the terror group’s brutal October 7 massacres in southern Israel in which 1,200 people were killed and 240 abducted.

According to the health ministry, a total of 22,185 Palestinians have been killed and 57,035 injured as a result of the fighting in Gaza.

The numbers provided by the health ministry cannot be independently verified, however, and do not differentiate between civilians and combatants, of whom Israel believes it has killed over 8,500.
