Israeli attacks killed 127 people in Gaza over the past 24 hours, Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health says

Israeli attacks have killed at least 127 people and injured 178 others in Gaza over the past 24 hours, the Hamas-controlled Palestinian Ministry of Health in the strip said Sunday.

CNN cannot independently verify the number of casualties on the ground.

The health ministry added that altogether 27,365 Palestinians had been killed and 66,630 injured in Gaza since October 7.

As of January 8, according to Palestinian statistics, about one in every 100 people in Gaza had been killed since the war between Israel and Hamas erupted.

Israel believes that it has killed two Palestinian civilians for every Hamas militant in its intense campaign to eliminate the armed group from the Gaza Strip, a ratio an IDF spokesperson described to CNN last month as “tremendously positive.”

More than 1,200 people were killed and some 200 others were kidnapped in the October 7 terror attack in southern Israel. Some 130 hostages remain in Gaza.
