A statement from the government’s media office said “more than 140 people were martyred and hundreds wounded in massacres committed by the occupation (Israel) raids”.

Gaza’s rulers say more than 5,000 people have been killed in the territory since their gunmen attacked Israel on October 7, killing at least 1,400 people.
