Death Toll Hits 1375 as Israel s Offensive on Gaza Continues

Gaza, July 31 (QNA) – At least 1375 Palestinians have been killed, most of whom are women and children, while more than 7700 others have been injured since the beginning of the Israeli ongoing aggression on Gaza on July 8, according to medical statistics.

As Thursday marks the 24th day since the aggression began, a least 13 Palestinians, including a child, a disabled female and a journalist, were killed in a series of Israeli air and artillery attacks across the Gaza Strip, Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

The recent attacks follow a bloody day in which at least 129 Palestinians were massacred and 350 were injured in a series of Israeli artillery and air attacks across the Gaza Strip.

Journalist Sameh al-Aryan, of al-Aqsa TV, died Thursday of his wound which he had sustained in an Israeli bombing which hit the marketplace of Shujaeya district, east of Gaza City, on Wednesday.

The Israeli massacre in Shujaeya claimed the lives of almost 18 innocent Palestinians, including journalists, medics and other staff affiliated with the International Red Cross and others with the Palestinian Red Crescent, in addition to children, women and elderly.

Five Palestinians were Thursday killed in an Israeli artillery attack that targeted, with several missiles, a group of people in the town of Abasan, southeast of Khan Younes. (QNA)
