Director General of the Government Media Office in Gaza, Ismail Al-Thawabta, said more than 700 Palestinians were killed as a result of the Israeli bombardment on Saturday alone.

Al-Thawabta told reporters during a press conference held in Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital yesterday that the Baptist Hospital in downtown Gaza City has received more than 300 Palestinian victims.

He pointed out that Israel has committed more than 20 massacres in the Gaza Strip during over a 24-hour period, stressing that the Israeli occupation forces refuse to allow the wounded to move from the northern governorates to the south.

At least 15,899 Palestinians, 70 per cent of them women and children, have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza since 7 October, the Ministry of Health in the enclave said today.
