The Gaza Ministry of Health, run by Hamas, announced on June 23 that 37,598 people have been killed, and 86,032 injured in the Gaza Strip since October 7.

In the past 24 hours, 47 bodies and 121 wounded individuals were brought to hospitals.

These numbers cannot be independently verified. The ministry does not specify how many of the casualties are militants.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated it cannot confirm the accuracy of these figures. However, a January report by The Lancet suggested that the data from the Gaza Ministry of Health might be accurate.

The IDF reports that dozens of militants are killed daily in Gaza. Since the war began, the IDF claims approximately 15,000 militants and their commanders have been killed. Hamas has acknowledged around 6,000 of its fighters' deaths.

The Gaza Ministry of Health does not differentiate between civilian and militant casualties and attributes all deaths to IDF actions, though many are likely due to militants or other causes unrelated to IDF operations.

The UN estimates that about 40% of those killed in Gaza are men of military age, 20% are women, 32% are minors, and 8% are elderly.
