TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – In the last 108 days, Israeli military attacks have killed 11,000 children and 7,500 women in the Gaza Strip, said the media office of the government in Gaza on Monday.

In the strip, 7,000 people, 70% of whom are women and children, are still under debris or missing from Israeli attacks, it said, citing a host of new figures to try to convey the depth of loss and destruction suffered by Gaza, Anadolu news agency reported.

Some 70,000 houses have been completely destroyed in Israeli attacks, and 290,000 houses were made uninhabitable.

On Israeli attacks on the healthcare sector, the statement said 337 healthcare workers and 45 civilian defense officials have so far been killed.
