(MENAFN- Nam News Network) GAZA, Feb 11 (NNN-XINHUA) – The Palestinian death toll from the ongoing Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, has exceeded 28,000, the Gaza-based health Ministry said yesterday.

The ministry said in a press statement that, the Israeli army killed 117 Palestinians and wounded 152 others, during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths to 28,064, and injuries to 67,611, since the Israel-Hamas conflict broke out on Oct 7, last year.

The Israeli army has been launching intensive airstrikes on Rafah city, in the south of Gaza, since Friday night, killing at least 28 people, reported the state-run Palestine TV.

On Friday, the Zionist Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, instructed the army to prepare a plan for a ground operation in Rafah, to eliminate what remains of Hamas brigades.

The city was previously considered a safe zone from Israel's relentless bombardments, and has provided shelter for over half of the 2.3 million Gaza residents, who fled for safety.– NNN-XINHUA
