Israel launches 10,000th airstrike in Gaza, 700 people reported killed in past 24 hours | 3 Dec 2023 | Israel on Sunday unleashed its 10,000th airstrike in Gaza since the war began Oct. 7, with at least 700 Palestinians reportedly killed in the past 24 hours alone as the war heats up again post-cease-fire. "Hell on Earth has returned to Gaza," said Jens Laerke, a rep for the United Nations' Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The Israel Defense Forces said that since Israel's ground invasion into northern Gaza began in early October, it has launched 10,000 airstrikes at the Palestinian-controlled area, with the bombardments intensifying over the weekend after Israel and Hamas failed to reach a deal that would have seen all the female hostages kidnapped by the terrorist group freed. Israel said more than 400 targets in northern Gaza have been struck since Friday, with the Hamas-run Ministry of Health stating that at least 700 people have been killed in the renewed bombings, one of the highest daily death tolls recorded since the war began.
