On January 16, the Gaza Ministry of Health, affiliated with Hamas, reported that since the beginning of hostilities on October 7, 24,285 people have lost their lives in the Gaza Strip, with 61,154 sustaining injuries.

The accuracy of this information remains unverified due to the scale of the fatalities, often leading to mass burials.

According to the Hamas Ministry of Health, the past 24 hours saw 158 fatalities and 320 injuries during the ongoing Gaza conflict.

It's crucial to note that the World Health Organization (WHO) has consistently emphasized its inability to confirm or refute the accuracy of the data on casualties provided by the Gaza Ministry of Health.

Contrary to these reports, IDF reports indicate daily elimination of dozens of militants associated with terrorist groups in Gaza.
