More than 70% of those killed were children, women and the elderly, while some 24,000 people have been injured, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Ramallah was quoted as saying by CNN.

On Monday (November 6, 2023), the Hamas-controlled health ministry in Gaza said the death toll in the enclave had risen to more than 10,000, the American news channel reported.

As the conflict intensifies in Gaza, with risk of spillover to the wider region, UN Secretary-General António Guterres on Monday underlined the need to support a $1.2 billion humanitarian appeal to help nearly three million people across the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

“The nightmare in Gaza is more than a humanitarian crisis. It is a crisis of humanity,” he said, speaking to journalists at UN Headquarters in New York.

He also voiced ongoing grave concern over rising violence and an expansion of the conflict between Israeli forces and Hamas militants, stating that “the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is at a boiling point.”
