“16 massacres in 24 hours”: Gaza death toll passes 28,000

Gaza’s Health Ministry says the number of Palestinians killed from the Israeli aggression since October 7 has risen to 28,064, with 67,611 others wounded.

“The Israeli occupation committed 16 massacres against families in the Gaza Strip, killing 117 and wounding 152 during the past 24 hours,” the ministry said.

Thousands more are missing and presumed dead, trapped under the rubble or their bodies strewn on streets.

As Israel intensifies its attacks on Rafah, people are now escaping to the central part of the Gaza Strip about 20km (eight miles) away.

Meanwhile, Ahmed al-Sufi, mayor of Rafah, said “any military action in the city crowded with more than 1.4 million Palestinians will lead to a massacre.”

More than two dozen people, including children, were killed in Israeli air raids on Rafah.
