Last week, Gaza’s Health Ministry released a list of Palestinians killed by the on-going Israeli attacks on the besieged strip.

The list was released a day after US President Joe Biden questioned the accuracy of the death toll of the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza.

“I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed,” he said.


This was followed by a release of a comprehensive report on October 26, detailing the names, ages, gender and ID numbers of 6,747 of the victims.

From October 7 to October 25 alone, a span of 19 days, at least 7,028 people were killed in Israeli attacks which included 2,913 children.

Al Jazeera has now broken down the data, revealing that 7,028 deaths in 19 days means 370 average daily deaths. While 16,297 injuries indicated 858 average daily injuries.

Moreover, 73 per cent of those killed in the attacks were women, children and the elderly.

Among the victims are:
133 babies below the age of one
482 toddlers (1-3 years old)
344 preschoolers (4-5 years old)
1,042 primary school children (6-12 years old)
664 high school children (13-17 years old)
966 young adults (18-25 years old)
2,506 adults (26-55 years old)
521 Nakba survivors (56-74 years old)
