The ongoing Israel-Hamas war noted that the Palestinian death toll has surpassed 25,000. The update was confirmed by the Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip on Sunday.

According to the sources, Israel has announced the death of another hostage, and it appeared to be far from achieving its goal of releasing more than 100 others and crushing the terrorist group.

“The war’s death, destruction and displacement are without precedent in the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The war has divided Israelis while the offensive threatens to ignite a wider conflict involving Iran-backed groups in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen that support the Palestinians” stated press release.

Due to this, the relatives of the hostages and others in anger, set up a tent outside the Prime Minister’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence and claimed to be there until the release of their people who are held refugees amidst Israel-Hamas War.

“Furious with the Israeli government and demanding the release of remaining hostages, relatives and others set up a tent camp outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem and vowed to stay until a deal is reached”, the report continued.

Also, it was reported that Netanyahu in a recent rebellious statement said that he stressed in his talks with United States (US) President Joe Biden on Friday that he rejects Hamas’ demands for a ceasefire, withdrawal of Israeli forces and release of Palestinians held by Israel in exchange for the remaining hostages.

Furthermore, he said that agreeing means another devastating Hamas attack “would only be a matter of time.”

Moreover, PM Netanyahu also rejected the call from his closest ally, the United States to discuss the postwar plans that would include a path to Palestinian statehood.

Noting this, UN (United Nations) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres refused to accept a two-stated solution. He further added, “The Middle East is a tinderbox. We must do all we can to prevent conflict igniting across the region. And that starts with an immediate humanitarian cease-fire to relieve the suffering in Gaza.”

According to the reports of the Heath Ministry, more than 25,105 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since the beginning of the war on October 7, 2023. It is to be noted that more than 62 681 have been wounded badly.

Further, the Health Ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra added that the toll included the 178 bodies that were brought to Gaza’s hospitals since Saturday.
