Gaza/IBNS: The death toll of Palestinians has exceeded 22,000 since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7, the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

The Israeli army killed 207 Palestinians and wounded 338 others in the Gaza Strip during the past 24 hours, the ministry said in a press statement.

The new casualties bring the number of Palestinian deaths to 22,185 and injuries to 57,035 since Oct 7, according to the statement.

Meanwhile, Palestinian security sources told Xinhua that the Israeli attacks from the air, land, and sea continued in most parts of the Gaza Strip during the past hours, especially on the refugee camps in central Gaza, while violent fighting between the Israeli army and armed Palestinian militants was ongoing.

Israel launched air raids on the central and eastern parts of Khan Younis, the largest city in the south of the coastal enclave, and used artillery to bomb the northern neighbourhoods of the city, leading to a number of deaths, according to the sources.
