Palestinian Death Toll Crosses 10,000

According to Gaza’s health ministry, the death toll of Palestinians within Gaza has now exceeded 10,000, of which 4,100 are children. The updated toll comes amidst a continued extensive bombing campaign throughout Gaza which has assisted Israeli ground forces in effectively severing Gaza in two, between North and South, after Israeli forces announced they had reached the coast.

The 10,000 have been killed in less than a month, as late tonight (early morning in the Levant) will be 1 month exactly since the start of the war.
