More than 15,900 Palestinians, including 250 health workers, have been killed in Gaza since the outbreak of war on October 7, the Palestinian health minister said on Tuesday.

The number of dead is steadily rising despite international calls for Israeli forces to limit civilian harm in the new phase of its military offensive in Gaza that began on December 1 when a truce with Hamas collapsed, Health Minister Mai al-Kaila told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah, reports Reuters.

More than 40,900 people in Gaza have been injured in Israeli airstrikes, according to a report his ministry issued after the briefing.

Al-Kaila said airstrikes have hit health facilities and hospitals and Israeli forces had detained 30 health workers during the offensive launched in retribution for an October 7 cross-border rampage into southern Israel by Hamas who killed 1,200 people, according to Israeli tallies.
