Death toll from Gaza strikes rises to 34,943, Palestine says

TUNISIA, May 10. Death toll from Israeli strikes on the sector Gaza has reached 34,943 since October 7, Gaza's health ministry said.
“The number of victims of Israeli aggression since October 7 has grown to 34,943, 78,572 people have been injured,” the enclave’s Ministry of Health said in a statement.

According to the department, over the past 24 hours, the bodies of 39 people who died due to the actions of the Israeli army were delivered to hospitals in the Gaza Strip.

On October 7, 2023, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented-scale rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. After this, fighters from the Palestinian Hamas movement entered the border areas, opened fire on military and civilians, and took more than 200 hostages. According to authorities, about 1.2 thousand people died.
The Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Iron Swords in the Gaza Strip, which includes attacks on civilian targets. Israel announced a complete blockade of the enclave: supplies of water, electricity, fuel, food and medicine were stopped.

On Tuesday night, Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) ground forces entered the city of Rafah in the south of the enclave as part of a counter-terrorism operation, and Israeli tanks took operational control of the Rafah checkpoint from the Gaza Strip.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the parties to stop hostilities. According to Moscow's position, a settlement is possible only on the basis of a formula approved by the UN Security Council with the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem.
