Gaza Death Toll Tops 770 as Israeli Strikes Hit Schools, Hospitals and a Market

HeadlineOct 10, 2023

Israeli airstrikes continue to rain down across the Gaza Strip, where the death toll has climbed to more than 770 people and is expected to rise rapidly as Israel masses troops for a possible ground invasion. Among the dead are dozens of Palestinians killed Monday as Israel bombed a packed marketplace in Jabaliya, Gaza’s largest refugee camp. Also struck were hospitals, a university and two U.N.-run schools sheltering families displaced by the fighting. More than 4,000 Palestinians have been injured. The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees says violence has displaced nearly 200,000 people across the Gaza Strip, with that number expected to grow. Humanitarian aid workers report hospitals are overwhelmed, with critical shortages of medicine, food and fuel. This is Salah Hanouneh, a 73-year-old grandfather whose Gaza neighborhood came under attack.

Salah Hanouneh: “We were at home when we got information saying we have to leave immediately, to leave because our neighborhood is under attack. We took ourselves, our children and grandchildren and daughters-in-law, and we ran away. I can say that we became refugees. We don’t have safety or security. What’s this life? This is not a life.”
