They died in the last 24 hours 63 people in the devastated Palestinian enclave, bringing the death toll from October to 35.034. At least 114 were also injured in the last few hours, raising the total number of injured since the offensive began to 78.755.

The figures are known while the Israeli Army expands its attacks in Rafah, at the southernmost end of the Strip, from where it is estimated that some 300,000 people faced with the constant threat of bombings.

Six days after the first evacuation order in the neighborhoods on the eastern outskirts of Rafah, which affected some 100,000 residents, Israel yesterday ordered the departure of the civilian population in the Rafah and Shabura camps, and in the Adari neighborhoods and Geneina, advancing towards the center of the city, which welcomed 1.4 million displaced.

In addition, the armed forces have returned to fighting in the Jabalia refugee camp in the north, where they say the Islamist group is regrouping.

The camp was one of the first places the Army entered in October, and since then hundreds of people have been killed in airstrikes and much of its infrastructure has been devastated.

Hamas accused Israel of committing the crimes of “genocide, starvation war and ethnic cleansing“in a statement this Saturday in which he denounced the closure of the Rafah border crossing for the fifth consecutive day.

The most up-to-date data from the Gaza Ministry of Health, which collects information from the different hospitals and clinics in the enclave, indicate that there are still around 10,000 missing people in Gaza, while the 72% of the fatal victims of the conflict are women and children.

In addition, 17,000 children have lost one or both of their parents, while at least 30 people have died from starvation, according to data published Wednesday by authorities in the Strip.
