The death toll from the Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip has reached 718, as the Israeli offensive continues on to a 17th day. Israeli forces targeted an area near the city of Khan Yunis in central Gaza, as well as a district in the northern Gaza’s Jabalia. Reports say that at least 21 people were killed on Thursday - mostly in Khan Yunis - including a family of six. At least 4,250 Palestinians have also been wounded since Israel started its air raids on July 8 and its ground invasion nearly 10 days later. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), about 150 Palestinian children have been killed. Another 107,000 children are also in need of direct and specialized psychosocial support. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has also said that one Palestinian child has been killed every one hour over the past two days in Gaza. Tel Aviv has so far targeted more than 3,250 locations in the besieged strip, completely destroying nearly 500 homes and partially damaging 2,644. The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Israel. Israel has so far confirmed the death of at least 32 Israelis soldiers. Meanwhile, more than 120,000 Palestinians have become displaced and have no place to go. UN officials say that 70 percent of Gazans do not have access to safe water, as major water wells have been hit directly by the Israeli forces.
