The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza says at least 29,300 people have been killed there during the war between Hamas and Israel.

A ministry statement says a total of 118 people died in the past 24 hours, while another 69,333 have been wounded since the war erupted on October 7, sparked by the terror group’s massacre in southern Israel.

The figures issued by the Hamas-run health ministry cannot be independently verified, and are believed to include both civilians and Hamas members killed in Gaza, including as a consequence of terror groups’ own rocket misfires.

The IDF says it has killed over 12,000 operatives in Gaza, in addition to some 1,000 terrorists inside Israel on October 7.
