Death toll across Palestine surges to 11,208, over 29,500 wounded

RAMALLAH, Friday, November 10, 2023 (WAFA) – In the wake of the devastating Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank, the death toll has surged to at least 11,208, with over 29,500 individuals wounded, the Ministry of Health said in an update this evening.

The Ministry said in a statement that the number of deaths in the Gaza Strip has reached 11,025, while the death toll in the West Bank also surged to 183. In addition, the ministry said, 27,000 Palestinians have been injured in Gaza, and nearly 2,500 others in the West Bank.

As of October 29, said the ministry, it's been reported that approximately 2,700 Palestinians, including at least 1,500 children, are missing, who may be trapped or dead under the rubble.

Of the 35 hospitals in Gaza, 19 are currently out of service due to the Israeli bombing campaign and the depletion of fuel reserves.

The shortage of fuel has left doctors with no choice but to perform surgeries without proper anesthesia, including those who have been injured in the airstrikes and women undergoing cesarean sections.

Since October 7, Israeli authorities have prevented patients in Gaza from leaving the territory to seek treatment in hospitals in Jerusalem and inside the 1948-occupied lands, including around 2,000 patients suffering from cancer. Source : (Official state news agency of Palestine WAFA)
