Date:

GAZA – The death toll of Palestinians from Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip has risen to 4,651, the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Sunday.

Meanwhile, 14,245 Palestinians were wounded in the coastal enclave, the Ministry said in a statement.

Among the victims, 1,873 were children and 1,023 were women, it added as quoted by Xinhua news agency report.

At least 266 Palestinians were killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza in the last 24 hours, Ashraf al-Qedra, the Ministry’s spokesperson, said in a press statement.

The Israeli airstrikes were triggered by a Hamas attack on Israeli military targets and towns on October 7. 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has discussed humanitarian aid for Gaza over the phone with Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the political bureau of Hamas, local media reported on Sunday.

Erdogan told Haniyeh that “Turkey is making efforts to ensure that humanitarian aid reaches Gaza and that the injured can be treated in Turkey when necessary,” NTV television reported, citing Erdogan’s office.

The Turkish President said Turkey was working for a “ceasefire in the region as soon as possible” and reiterated his country’s position regarding the conflict, Xinhua news agency reported.

“A permanent solution to the Israel-Palestine issue cannot be achieved without establishing an independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital, and Turkey will continue to work internationally for permanent peace,” he added. -IANS
