'Israel' murdered 11,000 children in Gaza in 108 days
A statement shows that the IOF have unleashed more than 65,000 tons of explosives at Gaza since October 7.
The Government Media Office in Gaza declared yesterday that the IOF have murdered 11,000 Palestinian children and 7,500 women in Gaza as of the 108th day of the Israeli war on Gaza.
Anadolu news agency reported that in the Strip, 7,000 Palestinians, 70% of whom are women and children, are still under debris or missing from Israeli attacks, citing new figures in an attempt to convey the depth of loss and destruction suffered by Gaza.
Since October 7, the number of martyred Palestinians surpassed 25,900, while 63,000 others have been severely injured. In addition, around 70,000 homes have been completely destroyed by Israeli attacks and 290,000 others are currently inhabitable as two million Palestinians are now internally displaced in Gaza.
The statement said that 337 healthcare workers and 45 civilian defense officials have so far been killed by the deliberate attacks of the IOF on hospitals. In parallel, 119 journalists were also murdered by the occupation in Gaza.
The aggressive detention campaign launched by the IOF continues as 99 healthcare workers and 10 journalists have been detained so far.
The statement also emphasized the inhumane conditions in crowded shelters where displaced Palestinians seek refuge, as 400,000 cases of infectious diseases and more than 8,000 cases of Hepatitis A have been detected.
The deliberate displacement and attack on the healthcare sector now leave 60,000 pregnant women at critical risk, while 350,000 individuals with chronic illnesses are also at risk due to the lack of medication.
The IOF's perpetual targeting of various facilities led to the destruction of 140 government facilities, as well as 99 schools and universities, while partially damaging another 295.
11,000 injured people desperately need treatment, and 10,000 cancer patients are facing the risk of death due to the absence of healthcare outside of Gaza as a result of the Israeli aggression.
150 healthcare institutions were targeted by the IOF in Gaza, 53 health centers and 30 hospitals were made inoperative, and 122 ambulances are currently unusable.
Palestine's cultural heritage was also deliberately targeted by the occupation leaving 200 historical and cultural assets in Gaza destroyed.
In a previous statement released on Sunday, the Palestinian Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs in Gaza reported that Israeli forces have so far destroyed over 1,000 mosques and desecrated dozens of cemeteries in their ongoing genocidal aggression.
The IOF are killing their own too
The Israeli Haaretz newspaper revealed on January 22 that the IOF had earlier recovered three captives: soldiers Ron Shireman and Nick Baizer, as well as the settler Eliya Tolidano, from a tunnel in Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip.
Their deaths raised concern in Israeli public opinion, described by Haaretz as "difficult and troubling, requiring clarification and public disclosure."
Maayan Shireman, an Israeli settler, who happens to be the mother of the killed Israeli soldier Ron Shireman, accused the IOF in a Facebook post of killing her son with poisonous gas pumped into the tunnel.
"My son was indeed killed, but not by Hamas, not in accidental gunfire, not in friendly fire; he was killed with premeditation and determination through pumping poisonous gases into the tunnel," she wrote.
She explained that her son's fingers "were found smashed, possibly due to his desperate attempts to escape the gas-filled grave."
"Ron was captured due to criminal negligence of all the relevant military and corrupt government officials who ordered his elimination to settle scores with Hamas," she added, referring to the IOF's Hannibal Directive which was rumored to have been employed since day one (the Hannibal Directive entails that a dead soldier is better than a captured soldier).
