At least 40,000 people have been killed, injured or gone missing in Israel’s ongoing attacks on the Gaza Strip since Oct. 7, according to Gaza’s Government Media Office.

Salama Marouf, a spokesman for the office, told reporters late Tuesday that 10,328 people including 4,237 children, 2,719 women, 631 elderly people have been killed.

Marouf said nearly 26,000 others have been injured and more than 3,000 people are missing.

He said the death toll includes 1,021 residents of Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip who were displaced to areas that the occupation claimed were safe in the south of the Gaza Strip and 49 journalists.

He also noted that 192 medical and health personnel were killed, 40 ambulances were destroyed, 113 health institutions were severely damaged and 18 hospitals and 40 health centers were put out of service.

Marouf pointed out that "the occupation committed 1,071 massacres against Palestinian families…while 1.5 million citizens were displaced from their homes."

Israel launched air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by the Palestinian group Hamas on Oct. 7.
