IP- At least 35,456 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s ongoing offensive on the Gaza Strip since last Oct. 7, the Health Ministry in the besieged enclave said on Sunday.

Iran Press/ West Asia: A ministry statement added that 79,476 other people have also been injured in the onslaught.

“Israeli attacks killed 70 people and injured 110 others in the last 24 hours,” the statement said.

“Many people are still trapped under rubble and on the roads as rescuers are unable to reach them,” it added.

Israel continued its brutal offensive on the Palestinian enclave despite a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire.

More than seven months into the Israeli war, vast swathes of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.

Israel is accused of “genocide” at the International Court of Justice, which has ordered Tel Aviv to ensure its forces do not commit acts of genocide and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.

Israeli War Cabinet Member Benny Gantz also said Saturday that a comprehensive plan must be formulated by June 8 or he will leave Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition government.

The plan must include “undermining Hamas's rule and securing the release of the captives held in the Gaza Strip,” he said at a news conference.

"A strategic shift is required, not a waste of time. We need to establish an alternative national strategy,” he added.

Gantz urged Israel “to create an international civilian governance mechanism for Gaza, including American, European, Arab and Palestinian elements -- which will also serve as a basis for a future alternative that is not Hamas and is not (Palestinian Authority President) Abbas.”
