At least 3,785 people have been killed in the Gaza Strip since Israel began its airstrikes on the coastal enclave, the Hamas-controlled health ministry says.

Some 1,524 children and 1,000 women are among those killed in the relentless Israeli airstrikes, the ministry says, claiming that another 12,493 people have been injured.

Israel and other international bodies have cast doubt on Hamas’s claims about the toll of those killed and wounded.
