International News: Palestinian Health Ministry says 20 thousand people have been killed in Gaza

Posted: Friday, December 22, 2023. 3:09 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Palestinian Health Ministry says that 20,000 people have been killed in Gaza since October 7.

According to NBC News, the report noted that 70 percent of those killed were women and children.

Since Hamas’s attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s declaration of war, thousands of people have lost their lives, and thousands more have been displaced.

Estimates by the United Nations note that around 90 percent of the population has been displaced, referring to it as a “humanitarian disaster”.

When Hamas attacked Israel on October 7, 240 people were reportedly taken hostage, with more than 100 freed during a brief ceasefire.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office noted that more than 120 people are still captive by Hamas.

The U.N. and international community continue to urge for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
