Hamas armed wing Al Qassam Brigades has announced that 13 captives were killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza in the last 24 hours.
In a statement on early Friday, Hamas said six of the hostages were killed in strikes on two separate locations in the Northern district and seven more died in strikes that hit three locations in the Gaza district, according to a report by Reuters.
Gazans have been cut off from supplies of food, water, and electricity, as Israel declared war on Hamas and imposed a “full siege” of the territory after Saturday’s surprise assault killed more than 1,300 people in Israel.
As of Thursday night, the death toll in Gaza stood at 1,537 people, including around 500 children, with another 6,612 injured, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
The health official noted that the casualties will continue to rise, as entire families are being buried under the rubble of their houses, while those rescued risk dying in overcrowded hospitals.
