Gaza: Palestinians Death Toll at 625


At least seven Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip as Israeli warplanes and tanks keep targeting the besieged enclave.

According to Gaza authorities, the latest deaths on Tuesday took place in several cities, including Khan Younis, Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahiya, press tv reported.

The fatalities came a day after Israeli tanks shelled the Al-Aqsa Martyrs hospital in the Deir al-Balah city in the central Gaza Strip, leaving five people dead and several others injured.

The latest casualties bring the Palestinian death toll to nearly 625 from more than two weeks of Israeli attacks. Thousands of Palestinians have also been injured in the onslaught.

Since the deadly Israeli offensive started on July 8, huge numbers of people in Gaza have fled their homes, with the UN saying over 100,000 people have sought shelter in 69 schools run by its Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA).

Meanwhile, top Hamas leader in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh has said the blockaded Gaza Strip would become “a graveyard for Israeli soldiers,” who are committing crimes against the Palestinians in the enclave. Around 30 Israelis have so far been killed in the war.
