The war broke out after Hamas' unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7, which killed more than 1,170 people, mostly civilians, according to an AFP tally of Israeli official figures.

Israeli retaliatory strikes against Hamas have killed at least 34,654 people in Gaza, mostly women and children, according to the Hamas-run territory's health ministry.

Gaza's civil protection agency and hospitals reported more deaths from Israeli strikes in Rafah as well as remote areas in the north.

The United Nations says more than 70 percent of Gaza's residential buildings have been completely or partially destroyed, and reconstruction will require an effort unprecedented since World War II.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said late Friday that accepting a ceasefire agreement with Israel should not be an easy task for Hamas.

“The reality at this moment is that the only thing standing between the people of Gaza and a ceasefire is Hamas,” Blinken said.
