** Gazans have no means to rescue bodies from under the rubble of flattened buildings. Victims are left to die trapped under tons of dirt, making diseases practically inevitable. **

GAZA and WEST BANK, 18 Dec 2023

Casualties up to 17 Dec 2023

  • 18,800+ killed* and more than 51,000 wounded in the Gaza Strip.
  • 297 Palestinians killed in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem
  • Israel revises its estimated October 7 death toll down from 1,400 to 1,147.
  • 450 Israeli soldiers killed since October 7, and at least 1,682 injured.

*This figure was confirmed by Gaza’s Ministry of Health on December 16. Due to breakdowns in communication networks within the Gaza Strip, the Ministry of Health in Gaza has not been able to regularly and accurately update its tolls since mid-November. Some rights groups put the death toll number closer to 20,000. (Mondoweiss)

Pools of rainwater collect outside the tent, turning the dirt ground into cold mud. Approximately 1.9 million Palestinians have been displaced due to Israel’s genocide in Gaza. As the winter sets in, rainfall is bringing floods, causing a disaster for people sleeping in the streets. (APA Images).
