The death toll in Gaza since Israel declared war has risen to 3,785, including 1,524 children, 1,000 women and 120 older people, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza says.

In addition, 12,493 others have been wounded, including 3,983 children and 3,300 women, it says.

Israel says hundreds of the dead were killed by terrorist rockets falling short, including one that caused a deadly explosion at a Gaza hospital’s parking lot.

Israel also says it has killed some 1,500 terrorists inside Israel.
