The Health Ministry within the Palestinian enclave reports over 558 deaths due to Israeli airstrikes within the Gaza Strip.
With above 2,800 individuals wounded and fatalities rising by over 65, Israel retaliates with a significant counterattack following a notable assault by the Palestinian faction, Hamas, who governs the Gaza Strip.
Almost 700 fatalities and 2,400 injuries, the most colossal non-combatant slaughter in Israeli record. Hamas alleges that four detainees were exterminated by Israeli air raids and over 100 Israelis are also held captive within the Gaza Strip.
Israel, the United States, and the European Union all categorize Hamas as a terrorist organization.
