Death toll from Israeli attacks on Gaza rises to 72


GAZA CITY, Palestine

The death toll from Israeli airstrikes in Gaza climbed to 72 Thursday, including 17 children and six women, with 388 injured.

According to a statement by the Palestinian Ministry of Health, two Palestinians were killed in Israel’s recent attacks on the region, including a child.

Heavy damage has also been recorded across Gaza’s residential areas, including the leveling of multistory buildings.

To date, six Israelis have been killed in the recent violence – five of them in rocket attacks in addition to a soldier killed when an anti-tank guided missile struck his jeep.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and annexed the city in its entirety in 1980 in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
