Hamas says Gaza death toll over 16,000

Hamas health authorities in Gaza say the death toll from Israeli attacks on the Strip has risen to 16,248, including more than 7,000 children and nearly 5,000 women.

Over 43,000 more are injured, and some 7,000 are missing and buried under rubble, Hamas claims.

The numbers cannot be verified, and do not differentiate between fighters and civilians.

They likely also include those killed by errant rocket fire launched by Gazan terror groups.
