The Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza said Tuesday October 31, it registered the deaths of at least 219 people in the past day, bringing the death toll to 8,525 since the war began.
This comes after Israel’s military announced that another 300 Hamas targets have been attacked in the Gaza Strip over the night as troops on the ground ‘conducted several battles with terrorist squads that fired anti-tank missiles or machine guns at the forces.’
Spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra said in a televised news conference that the fatalities include 3,542 children and 2,187 women.
Hospitals going out of service
He said the main power generator in the Indonesian Hospital in Beit Lahia, north of Gaza, has stopped working due to a lack of fuel.
He warned that more hospitals could go out of service in the coming days if fuel isn’t allowed into the besieged territory.
As of Tuesday, as many as 9,400 people have been killed in the war on both sides, including at least 1,400 Israeli civilians and soldiers.
