GAZA — According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the death toll in Gaza has surpassed 8,000 since October 7, 2023. Saheeb Al-Hams, the director of Kuwaiti Hospital in Gaza, noted that providing precise casualty figures is challenging due to the dire conditions in Gaza. The numbers reported by the Ministry are confirmed through hospitals and morgues, but the actual count could be higher, as many people are still trapped under rubble. Hams shared on Sunday that the Red Cross has visited various hospitals to verify the claims.اضافة اعلان
